What is Diversitech?
The Diversitech Fund enables us to offer reduced fees and free places on our courses and workshops including our award-winning Full Stack Track coding bootcamp and Coding Quick Start introductory course.
We believe that everyone should have access to the same skills and opportunities, regardless of their circumstances, and that individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences are integral for a thriving and innovative tech sector.
That’s why we established the Diversitech Fund: to help individuals from underrepresented and disadvantaged groups experience quality tech training and kick start careers in the industry.
How much funding is available?
Contributions vary depending on which course you are applying for with maximum awards of up to £1,200.
|Full Stack Track
|Software Developer Essentials
|Data Science Pathway
|Coding Quick Start
*Diversitech funding can be used in conjunction with upfront and split monthly payments or any of our available finance options. See our fees and funding page for more information.
How does it work?
Diversitech funding is available to people from groups underrepresented in tech including (but not limited to) female, non-binary, transgender, ethnic minority and disabled applicants as well as parents/guardians returning to work after a career break.
When applying for your chosen course, you’ll have the option to request Diversitech funding. We’ll collect a few extra details from you during this process to assess your eligibility and, if successful, the amount will be discounted from your course fees.
All awards are discretionary, funding is limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
