Tech Returners an organisation focused on empowering careers back into technology is launching an eighth cohort of it’s Your Return To Tech programme for individuals in Manchester and Lancashire. 

 

The programme called Your Return to Tech provides skilled tech professionals returning to industry accessible opportunities to refresh their skills and reignite their career but it doesn’t stop at learning and development, the organisation works closely with businesses who recognise the value of industry returners and who are passionate about creating diversity and inclusivity in their teams to provide an innovative tech talent solution.

 

The 8-week programme recognises the need from businesses growing their teams to bring tech talent to the market quickly and with the skills in place to hit the ground running in mid-senior level technical roles. The entirely remote learning experience boasts a curriculum which includes refreshing existing tech skills, front end frameworks ‘React’ (Hooks, Context, API) alongside Cloud technologies (AWS tooling), delivered alongside platform engineering skills such as infrastructure as code CI/CD and monitoring.

Interested businesses can sponsor places on the course at more than 50% less than the average technical hire making it an affordable and competitive option versus traditional recruitment agency fees.
