Train

13 weeks to kickstart your career

The course is split into a warm-up week, followed by four "laps". Each lap focuses on a different topic and is made up of three parts:

Learn week - Your introduction to the topic for this lap. You'll spend half of your time in lectures and the other half working on exercises to put your new knowledge into practice. 

Assignment week - You’ll be evaluated on your progress so far. There’ll be time for self-study, and we’ll set challenges that will hone your skills both individually and as a team player. 

Project week - Working in a small team, you'll create an entire product from scratch using the technologies you've learnt in this lap. You'll be able to include these projects in your portfolio, so by the end of the course you'll have four amazing pieces of work to boost your CV and kickstart your career.

Graduate

Finding the right place for you

At the end of the course, you’ll present your final projects in front of a range of potential employers. We’ll then arrange interviews where you’ll have the chance to impress employers with your new skills and secure a 2-year placement in tech.

We’ll help you continue to grow throughout your two-year placement, providing ongoing mentoring for you and your manager, as well as bespoke training and a technical roadmap guide so you’re able to keep developing throughout.

What do our learners achieve?

Why futureproof?

We know we’re not the only coding academy on the market, but our approach makes us special.

Unlike other coding schools, we don't charge you for the training and support you receive. We want to ensure the course is accessible to people from any background. Tech careers are for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got previous experience or not; we’re interested purely in your attitude, drive, and eagerness to learn, rather than your educational or financial background.

Transferable skills

Although we cover a range of tech fundamentals, we prefer to focus on techniques over tools. By the end of the course, you’ll be proficient in a variety of tech stacks and have the skills you need to thrive. You’ll then get to further hone those skills throughout your two-year placement.

Comprehensive support

We value you as an individual and tailor our support services to suit your needs. After being taught by our experienced trainers and supported by a tight-knit network of your peers, you’ll receive ongoing training and mentoring with a bespoke technical and personal roadmap all the way through your placement. You’ll have access to our wellbeing services throughout, and support from our growing community.

Supercharge your CV

futureproof is about so much more than just learning to code. We expose you to real-world tech environments; as well as teaching you agile working practices, we’ll also familiarise you with organisational structures, roadmaps, performance reviews, goal setting and other soft skills to ensure you're ‘office-ready’ for your new role and in a great position to hit the ground running from day one.  

How we’ll support you

Your continued development and overall wellbeing really matters to us. We want to help you bring your best self to work and feel supported through every step of your journey, because that is how we see our students unlock their truest potential.

Mental health services

This is an intense course with a steep learning curve, and we know the first few years in a new career can be intense, so we will give you access to all the tools to look after your wellbeing both during and after.

Ongoing training

During your placement, we support you and your manager throughout your continued growth and learning across your two-year placement.

A lifelong community

Build a professional network with futureproof peers, and discuss your experiences with people from diverse backgrounds, on the same journey. You're part of a new wave of people who will lead the tech world of tomorrow.

Meet the tech superstars

We’re extremely proud of our associates and feel so lucky to have played a part in their personal career journeys.

Ceris quote from kurita cohorot furtureproof

"I came into futureproof as an English graduate with no connection to the tech industry at all. In 13 weeks I have learnt not only how to be a full stack developer, but I have emerged with a huge network of people in the same industry, with a job, with the skills and support to learn more while I am working. I couldn't recommend it enough."

Shav Vimaldiran morris cohort student quote futureproof

"Starting futureproof to initiate a career switch was the best decision I'd ever made. The opportunity to upskill in a structured way was the best springboard I could have ever asked for, and I couldn't be happier with the skills and the job I've gained 😊."
