An update on Academy applications

It’s an exciting time here at Mayden Academy as we gear up for our second intake.
Following a very busy open day and a flurry of applications, aptitude tests and interviews, we are now in the process of meeting with our shortlisted candidates. We expect to be contacting individuals with offers by the end of this month.
Over 100 applications were received from individuals looking to join the Academy, and they came from a real mixture of people – from those who have just completed their A levels and are looking to move rapidly into a career as a developer, to those with years of experience in other areas who are looking to retrain. We’ve been hugely impressed with the quality of applications this year, and we wish everyone the very best of luck.
Sadly of course, we don’t have room for everyone in this intake, but we’ll shortly be releasing information about next year’s application process. If you don’t make it into the Academy this year, we’d encourage you to apply again in the future. We’ll be blogging soon about some of the online resources that can help to get you started on your journey to becoming a software developer so stay tuned, and please contact us to join the Mayden Academy enewsletter.
