From education to employment


Leading Coding Bootcamp Makers today announced a partnership with Accenture to offer an accelerated apprenticeship programme for career changers.

As part of the initiative, Accenture is offering aspiring software engineers a chance to join the firm by initially training with Makers and then completing the apprenticeship programme in-house. All candidates will be paid from the first day of their apprenticeship scheme, and will learn software developer skills without having to pay for training.
The Software Developer Accelerated Apprenticeship offered by Makers, shortens the traditional training period to allow apprentices to undertake a 12-week training bootcamp and then spend the remaining months on placement at Accenture to continue their software development.
At the end of the programme, the apprentices will be awarded the Level 4 Software Developer Apprenticeship, which will allow them to become Junior Software Developers and to join Accenture.
Selected candidates will be: 
  • Passionate about starting a career in coding and want to know where to start
  • Looking to learn from leading training provider in becoming a professional software developer
  • Able to start the application process in July 2019
  • Available to start the on-site training with Makers in East London in October 2019
  • Interested in a career with Accenture and able to start work from early 2020    
Accenture is looking for candidates with a degree in any discipline, some knowledge about programming languages, and an understanding of how technology can be used.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Accenture,” said Evgeny Shadchnev, CEO of Makers. “This is an incredible opportunity for qualified candidates to learn critical software coding skills while getting paid, and to then apply those skills at one of the world’s most exciting companies. We are looking forward to welcoming the students to the programme and to see how far they will go in developing their software coding capabilities and how they will shape a diverse, and more inclusive digital economy.”
