Join a community of women reshaping their careers using tech.

Learning to code at Mums in Technology is more than learning to write out lines of HTML and CSS. We want you to have an understanding of the tech landscape and how to make it work for you as a mum.

We’ve partnered with some of the leading Tech companies to help shape our curriculum, which is constantly

What will we cover?

Pre-course - Don’t worry we don’t expect you to do much ahead of the course except get your system ready

Week 1 - We’ll get you comfortable with UX, HTML and CSS and introduce some key concepts. We want you to build your first “Hello World” page

Week 2 - We’ll be diving a bit deeper into HTML and CSS and will get you working on some challenges. Introduction to wireframes and why developers use them. How to quickly get your website up

Week 3 - We’ll get you hacking sites and teach you about different tools to do this. What are the alternatives to coding from scratch

Week 4 - Introduce you to Jquery and how can you use it

Week 5 - Recap of what you’ve learned so far and intro to roles in tech

Week 6 - Getting comfortable with JavaScript

Week 7 - Half-Term. Optional webinar available ( the half-term break will vary)

Week 8 - Presenting your work and graduation session

Interested applicants also have the opportunity to shadow or intern at tech startups as well as corporates we have a relationships with.

What practical skill sets can I expect to have upon completion of the course?

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Have a good foundation to continue your learning of HTML, CSS, and overview of JavaScript skills
  • Understand full-stack web development
  • Understand what makes up a responsive page
  • Be comfortable with the process of hosting your site in the cloud
  • Understand the principles of agile methodology

Who is this course for?

Anyone who is interested in learning the fundamentals of web development would benefit from attending but the course is particularly relevant for mums on maternity leave, stay at home mums, women entrepreneurs, non-technical co-founders or anyone who is interested in careers in technology or learning technical skills perform better in their current role

What can I expect to accomplish by the end of this course?

By the end of the course, you will have:

  • Completed several individual and one group project
  • Learned how to design and build a site that leverages the principles of user-centric design
  • Mastered the technical vocabulary required to communicate your ideas to others
  • Networked with some of the best developers, companies, and entrepreneurs in your local community
  • Prepared yourself with the foundational knowledge you need to begin a career of continuous learning

What commitment do I need to make?

Commitment: 6 weeks of training – 3 hours’ class time, 1 hour mentor catchup, plus 1-2 hours of homework per week.

Coding is a challenge and there is a lot of information to cover. All sessions will be recorded where possible if you are unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances but to get the most out of the course you will need to attend all the classes and complete the minimum homework requirements.

Don't forget our other events (eg 'How they built it' series where you get to meet your favourite start-ups close up and hear their story), these are listed on our website which you can access here.

Please note we have 10 places. We have received a lot of interest for this course and would advise securing your place soon.

We've trained over 70 Mums since we started in September 2015 and these are some Testimonials from our Alumni

Wendy Woo – 5 star Amazing talks and learning June has managed to get some awesome people in to give talks and advise and training.

Grace Owolade – 5 star MiT has launched my understanding and knowledge around digital technology, business and coding - into vertical trajectory that has been both exhilarating and inspiring. Perfect timing for the beginning of my Business start up. Love the M&S Digital talks & Coding sessions with Rob & Adam - MiT is so good it has to continue so it can inspire more mums. Thank you June for tireless work and for being genuinely welcoming and inclusive. It been a thoroughly enjoyable journey with a really cool group like-minded mums (plus dads)
Tina Teeto – 5 star Great initiative, hands-on learning and amazing support network for new, seasoned and to-be mums (and dads!)

Rashmi Sirdeshpande – 5 star Mums in Tech is a brilliant baby-friendly coding school that makes learning to code accessible for mums (and dads). I love that it's so hands-on and packed full of fantastic speaker and mentor sessions. It's not just slide decks and book knowledge - it's about rolling your sleeves up and getting to grips with the code. I've met so many wonderful people through this programme and the extra support outside the "classroom" has been phenomenal. Thank you so much, June, for pulling this together! We need more stuff like this!

Sophie Duwat – 5 star I joined this group right at the beginning to learn some of the technical basics of coding. It's been really great so far to start understanding how everything fits together and to get the basic terminology around coding.
It's been so wonderful to meet brilliant women at different stages of their parenthood and business ideas/development.

Sara Tateno – 5 star June has done a fantastic job of organising a first programme that covers a broad range of topics relevant to mums looking to learn coding or start up their own tech business. It can be extremely daunting for mums to get started and this is an invaluable opportunity to meet top mentors in the industry and other like-minded people. The professional on-site nannies make the sessions accessible and give you both the space to concentrate and peace of mind! Initiatives like this make all the difference. Keep up the good work!

Please let me know if you have any questions at all in the meantime.

All our venues are centrally located with a lift.


Many thanks,
June
