We have graduated more than 180 students on our full-time programmes in London and Nazareth. Over the last two years, more than 90% of our graduates have gone on to work in software or a related field.

With their support and the work of the broader Founders & Coders community, we continue to offer our programmes for free at the point of delivery.

Each place on the Founders & Coders programme costs us about £2,500 to provide. We ask you to consider either seeking employment with one of our partners who will help pay for these costs or, alternatively, making a regular voluntary contribution after you graduate. This is a way of 'paying it forward', so that we can provide a place for someone in a future cohort.
