Level Up is a social initiative dedicated to providing educational opportunities and support to individuals who have not been able to access equal opportunities as everyone else. The programme, which is now entering its 5th year, focuses on empowering people in hard situations to acquire new skills and gain access to new career opportunities in order to transform their lives. The programme has already supported 85 aspiring professionals and has enabled many of them to get hired by renowned companies such as HubSpot, Accenture, Ericsson, and more.
Level Up Web Development Scholarships with CodeOp
Organised by Zartis in partnership with CodeOp, the first international tech school for women, trans, and non-binary individuals, Level Up: Diversity In Tech will offer 5 scholarships in Fullstack Software Development.
These scholarships will provide the safe space, training, and resources needed to encourage, support, and equip people with the skills they need to thrive in the tech industry. In doing so, we hope to make a positive change in the culture of tech worldwide.
Katrina Walker, CEO & Founder of CodeOp stated:
“We’ve been supporting women, trans and nonbinary people from over 70 countries worldwide since 2018 and we know that the number one barrier to enrolling into a bootcamp is financial. For this reason, CodeOp, a social venture, has a mandate to provide 10% of our students with a scholarship every year. Partnering with Zartis is a perfect way to extend our reach to new pools of great talent who are looking to transition into tech.”
