We are excited to share that, in its fourth year, Level Up is coming back stronger than ever. In 2022, we will be offering 28 scholarships to aspiring professionals, starting with software development scholarships in partnership with Code Institute, dedicated to the Women In Tech cause.
Twenty Full-stack Software Development scholarships will be granted to women from conflict areas suffering from the sudden disruption of opportunities in their home countries. The participants will gain highly sought after technical skills needed to transform their careers.
The need to take action and create equal opportunities for women is pressing. 49.8% of workers in the UK labor market as a whole are women; in tech, it’s half that, at 25.%. Simultaneously, there is a growing demand for skilled workers to fill tech roles which have increased by 40% in the last two years. Although global first-world economies share these statistics, little progress is being made to shift the dial and improve workforce participation rates.
Code Institute is recognised worldwide as the gold standard in career conversion. Each programme is industry-validated and university credit-rated or accredited by the relevant awarding body. They deliver software development programmes directly to learners and their education partners in further education. Code Institute also partners with governments worldwide on training initiatives related to employment, diversity, and equality in the tech sector.
“We are delighted to partner with Zartis again this year; our scholarship programme is focused on reskilling women in conflict areas to change their careers and access global opportunities available to software developers right now. We look forward to supporting these ladies through their career change journey and into employment.”
Jane Gormley, Careers Services Director at Code Institute
The program is 100% flexible, supported and online; this means anyone around the globe can access the courses in their own time. No experience is required; however, all applicants must complete Code Institute’s 5 Step Coding Challenge before being accepted to the programme.
