Tech Returner Programme

The 8 week ‘Your Return To Tech’ programme provides skilled tech professionals returning to industry accessible opportunities to refresh their skills and reignite their career. The 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, frontend frameworks ‘React’ (Hooks, Context, API) alongside Cloud technologies (AWS tooling), delivered alongside platform engineering skills such as infrastructure as code CI/CD and monitoring. Uniquely, individuals taking part in the programme will also take live briefs from AO to work on throughout the 8 week period. 


Since 2017 Tech Returners has empowered more than 55 returners, 49 of those women, into mid-senior level technical careers with businesses like AutoTrader, Booking.com, Lloyds Banking Group, ANS and Infinity Works and has worked exclusively with the BBC in Manchester and London respectively. The organisation is currently running a cohort of the programme in London working with businesses including Eigen Technologies, Alfa, BlackRock, Xero, Coeo and OpenCredo.
