Helping to kick start careers in tech

We’ve teamed up with Northcoders to launch the Fruition IT bursary


Earlier in the year we ran our candidate tech survey, we pledged to donate £5 to Northcoders for every survey that was completed. We received over 400 responses and thanks to everyone that completed the survey we’ve been able to set up TWO £1500 bursaries for two people taking part in the Northcoders bootcamp.

The two £1500 bursaries will be paid directly to the successful applicants and are specifically for people who wouldn’t be able to kick start their tech career with Northcoders without it. The bursaries can be used in conjunction with the fully funded Northcoders Excellence Scholarship scheme, which is a Skills Bootcamp in coding and is part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs.

“One of the main aims of Northcoders is to help as many people find their ideal career in tech. Making that switch can be a daunting and costly process so we are incredibly grateful to Fruition IT for partnering with this on these bursaries. Our focus will be on awarding the funds to two people who might not be able to learn to code without it.” – Amy Wild, Chief Commercial Officer at Northcoders

There is no set criteria for the bursaries, but possible uses for the funds could include childcare costs or buying a laptop. The final decision will be based on the applicant’s aptitude for coding, which will be assessed through the Northcoders Entry Challenge, their progression through the course preparation materials, and on their genuine need which will be assessed on factors like work and caring responsibilities.

“We are delighted to announce the new Fruition IT bursary with Northcoders. We share Northcoders’ passion for democratising tech as a career path so we hope these two bursaries will directly help create two new tech stars of the future, and contribute to widening diversity within the tech sector” – Sarah Pawson, Managing Director and Founder at Fruition IT and Fruition Consulting 

Applications are now open until Monday 1st November and the two recipients of the bursaries will be informed on Monday 22nd November.
