Diversity at Manchester Codes

At Manchester Codes, we believe that technology is for everyone, and that a career in tech should be available to anyone, regardless of their background, geography, gender, age, ability and socio-economic status.

For this reason we are dedicated in our mission to provide and support opportunities for people from under-represented backgrounds to join the tech industry.

How are we showing our commitment?

Get started for free

We have created 25 hours of bespoke content that can be accessed for free on our Introduction to Programming course. This also people access to our thriving community.

No barriers

Our Software Engineering FastTrack and FlexiTrack courses retrain individuals with little or no programming experience for entry-level opportunities as a Software Engineer.

Flexible offerings

All of our courses can be taken part-time. For those who want a more flexible route into learning how to code, we also offer our Software Engineer FlexiTrack course.

Diversity Grant

To help bridge the gender gap in tech, the Manchester Codes Diversity Grant gives all women and gender minorities on our paid courses a 10% discount on their course fees.

Helping the community

Our students and instructors regularly donate their time and expertise to coding related communities and meetups such as Full Stack of Pancakes, Recode and MancJS.

Educating on diversity

We collaborate with and educate community groups and hiring companies on creating an inclusive culture, through speaking at events or conferences and on a 1:1 basis.
