The course is suitable for:

  •  Graduates (FE/HE) with a Level 4+ qualification in a relevant sector subject area, or
  • Non-graduates who are employed or recently unemployed with a relevant core skill set, and are looking to reskill/upskill to enter the Fintech industry. The first two weeks of this 10-week programme include additional intensive modules in coding, so even if you are self-taught with a passion for programming and no formal qualifications in this area, we encourage you to apply.

All participants will receive a weekly £150 training allowance. Partnering local manufacturing and engineering organisations are committing to interviewing all those who complete the required modules.*
