      If you want the quick review here it is: By attending the academy I now have a job as a software engineer. 


      I cannot recommend the academy enough- all learning styles are accomodated, the content is well thought out and the teaching was clear and efficient. I attempted to learn this stuff on my own before the academy and I felt like I was banging my head against a wall, not knowing where to start, what to learn and constantly getting stuck and having no one to ask. Attending the academy 9-5 Monday to Friday and treating my learning as a job really helped focus my mind, immerse myself in the topic and be part of a positive learning environment with others that had the same goal. It also stopped me being lured in by my Xbox at home when trying to teach myself!

      Before joining Mayden, I had been an office administrator for around 20 years. 

      It wasn't fun. It wasn't well paid. Most of all, it was depressing. 

      I wanted a job career that I enjoyed - I wanted to be happy about getting out of bed and going to work in the morning. 

      Mayden offered the opportunity to achieve this - I didn't have the time left in my working life to study at OU. I didn't have the financial stability to drop out and go to Uni for 3 years. I needed a quicker solution. Enter Mike and the Mayden team...

      The course was great. Tough, but great - the content is current and constantly evolving to be relevant and most of all, backed up by practical work - as Scrum teams on big, full stack projects for real World experience. Invaluable for a new portfolio of work!

      It will be a long, tiring and mentally challenging four months, and you'll have to be prepared to put in the hours outside of the classroom, but it will be worth it. 

      Mike and the Mayden team have been as helpful as they can be in finding a job after graduating and in the other alumni from the course, I have a support network of people in the same situation, with the same experience. 

      Give it a try. You won't be disappointed...

      As somebody with an academic background, but negligible experience with software, Mayden Academy was just what I needed.

      The course provided me with the ability to write code in HTML, CSS, PHP, JavaScript, and SQL in order to create interactive web applications. As well as these core technologies, we were taught many peripheral components of the development process, such as Git, making us far more than code-writing machines. This was done in an environment where questions were absolutely always welcomed, and answered thoughtfully; and if the answer wasn't known, then other's would be consulted until it was!

      The learning took place in an active development environment, with the academy students forming an additional Scrum team. Doing it this way enabled us to prepare for what is ahead of us in our careers and to take examples from people who are doing it already.

      Job Assistance:

      I had a very basic knowledge of HTML and was keen to learn more.  Mike, our trainer, was very patient and explained things clearly and when needed, was very patient.

      There was a good mix of practical work and theory and I am keen to keep expanding my knowledge.

      Thank you.
