Award-winning coding bootcamp heads to Cambridge and Peterborough to bridge tech skills gap

Norfolk-based Tech Educators has partnered with The Bradfield Centre to support eligible students wishing to become software developers on a 12 week program. 

Tech Educators – a Norfolk-based provider of instructor-led coding bootcamps – is delighted to announce its new campus at The Bradfield Centre, Cambridge to offer eligible students from Cambridge and Peterborough the opportunity to learn essential tech skills to become software developers. 

Aimed at individuals from all backgrounds, the full-time, 12-week program* officially launches on 5 June 2023 at the Bradfield Centre. It’s the first-ever time Tech Educators – which was recently announced as the Digital Business of the Year – will have expanded into neighbouring regions to deliver training. 

Following research into what skills were in demand within the regions, the courses on offer will be the MERN Stack which will take students on a journey to learn how to code and prepare for work in a professional environment. And the next.js and TypeScript course which is aimed at those looking to take their development skills to the next level and create better, faster and more efficient websites and web applications. 

Up to 30 funded spaces will be provided for eligible learners, through the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, with The Bradfield Centre sponsoring a further two spaces a year through their newly announced scholarship program.

James Adams, Founder and CEO for Tech Educators, comments: “This brand-new partnership with The Bradfield Centre is not only a demonstration of Tech Educators commitment to delivering high-quality coding education but it advances our mission to close the tech skills gap in East Anglia and fill demand for tech roles – potentially – globally. 

“Tech Educators was created to make tech education accessible to anyone wanting to pursue a career in the sector. Our ambition is to have campuses across the country, with courses that nurture and encourage. Working with partners such as The Bradfield Centre, who truly understand the need to support individuals from all walks of life into a career in code, I can build tech as an inclusive community and this is what truly sets Tech Educators apart from other coding bootcamps.” 

Almost 95% of employers looking for tech talent have encountered a skills shortage over the past 12 months, according to recruitment and HR firm Hays. Tech Educators also found that regionally (East Anglia) 58% of software companies will be hiring over the next 12 months, and almost a third (30%) of those hiring are looking for experience in newer JavaScript supersets such as Typescript. 

In a competitive job market, skills such as coding have become, and will continue to be, crucial for younger generations and experienced professionals looking to upskill and reskill. Bootcamps are designed to help bridge the professional gap and equip individuals to think like data scientist’s and apply those learnings and skills across various industries. 

James Parton, Managing Director, of The Bradfield Centre, adds:

“We take our role of supporting the wider Cambridge ecosystem seriously, so I’m delighted to partner with Tech Educators to provide an inclusive opportunity to anyone seeking to develop a career in tech. Both organisations are aligned on the importance of impact, so as well as providing an incredible educational opportunity, with more than 100 tech startups as members of The Bradfield Centre, we will actively seek to match make students with real career opportunities to apply the skills they have learnt in the bootcamps.”
