After my Biology degree, I moved to Shanghai where I spent two years working as a teacher. The experience gave me a real understanding of how to get the most out of students beyond the traditional methods we see in the UK education system.
On coming back, I wasn’t excited about any of the opportunities related to my degree in either academia or industry. But then I found the _nology course.
I’d never considered a career in tech as I thought it was completely inaccessible. Now I’ve produced end-to-end client projects using the latest tools in software development, met a host of professionals within the tech industry and refined my coaching skills to become part of the _nology training team.
As trainers, we take candidates with no prior experience and turn them into well-rounded developers. We give them the technical skills to produce products to order, instil a comprehensive understanding of clean coding principles, and give them the confidence that they deserve a career in web development.
To ensure I support candidates throughout their journey, I draw on both my experience learning in intensive settings and years of teaching.
It’s incredibly rewarding to see people from all backgrounds come through our boot camp and then see them adding real value to development teams. I’m passionate about my role in producing holistic developers.
"I’m taking _nology from concept to reality, driving its evolution in line with the changing needs and overseeing every step of the process."
"I'm passionate about baking this core skill into the _nology programme, creating developers who are creative problem solvers."
"I’m excited about helping to dispel the myth that you need to be a scientist, maths genius or an electrical engineer in order to have a successful career in tech."
"Together with the _nology team, I’m focused on ensuring those on the conversion course are able to put their skills into practice, not just in theory."
"It’s also exciting to be part of an innovative, connected, driven and hardworking team, all focused on achieving _nology’s ambitions by using our creative and cultural energy to drive success."
