IT'S FREE
(AND FREEBIES ARE 👍!)

Ohhhh yeahhhh! The best bit for sure. The course is 100% free. That’s a huge booster to your skill set and cheaper than £1 drink nights at the uni pub.

MEET NEW FRIENDS
EXTEND YOUR NETWORK

Meet a bunch of smart, driven women who are as interested in learning a new skill as you are. These women could become great friends and, at the very least, amazing women in tech contacts.

JOB OPPORTUNITIES
EVERYONE USES TECH

We touched on this already with tech being a highly in-demand skill-set, but to add to this, tech is a growing field and job roles often see double-digit growth each year. Plus, there are great salaries to be had.

UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE
CODING IS GLOBAL

With years ahead of you to explore the world and build your career, the great thing about tech is that it is universal. A global language so to speak. And it’s easy to code from a Caribbean beach with remote work.
