Whether you want to change careers, brush up on your digital skills or create positive change in the world of tech, we have the insight, experience and know-how to help you reach your goals.

The Coders Guild are hosting three events at the upcoming Leeds Digital Festival (20 Sep - 1 Oct) and we’d like to give you the opportunity to meet some of the best in the business. So here’s the lowdown:

Kicking off the Festival in style we are launching our Leeds LGBTQ+ Hack. This is an open call for anyone who wants to register a team to create an idea–it could be an app or a website, it could be a piece of music or baking a cake–anything which will make Leeds more inclusive for the Leeds LGBTQ+ community.

Register your team (before 1 October) and use your creative freedom to make Leeds a more inclusive city. Remember, it won’t just be good for LGBTQ+ employees and employers, it will have a hugely positive impact on the real lives of LGBTQ+ people around the world.

The Coders Guild knows society’s most underrepresented groups can become the digital industry’s future innovators.

Next up, we have our environment and sustainability experts giving you top tips on how to Reduce your Environmental Impact. Learn how to make simple changes at work and in life to make the world a better place. Be warned though: they’ll be releasing some killer environmental stats and facts.

The Coders Guild are passionate about training the next generation to start their journey with environmental and accessibility factors in mind, to create a fantastic future of tech.

Last (but not least) we have our Alternative Pathways into Tech discussion.

Have you thought about a career in tech, but don’t know where to start? Would you like to find out more about how to work in tech without a degree? Or perhaps you provide career advice and are looking to see what opportunities are available in the tech sector? We’ve got you covered.

Our talented panel will talk about how they got into the tech industry so you can hear first hand about the various routes into tech; the diversity of the roles available and the amazing career opportunities that are available for people who have the aptitude and enthusiasm to learn skill sets which are continuously evolving and in demand.

The Coders Guild works relentlessly to reduce barriers of entry into the tech industry.

The Coders Guild is a leading provider of digital skills training and tech education. We’re on a mission to unlock the full potential of the tech industry, by making high quality digital skills training and tech education equally available to every person and every business.
