About the Programme
Our mission is to accelerate the diversity of tech teams in the UK and we believe everyone has something unique to offer and we welcome everyone to our community.
We enable diverse tech talent in the UK to excel in their careers through programmes that build professional confidence, develop tech skills, and create a long-term community of career support. Our accelerator programme is designed to empower you to reach your own personalised career goals.

In addition to Technical Masterclasses the programme will also provide tools and resources for Personal Development such as Leadership training, Overcoming Imposter Syndrome and Goal setting for Success.
