About the company
Mayden Academy trains aspiring software developers in the fundamentals of coding, software design and agile project management. In 16 weeks, we teach our students all they need to know to land their first job as a junior software developer, helping them to kickstart their new careers in programming.
The academy was founded in 2015 by Mayden: a fast growing software company based in Bath. It was created to be a part of the solution to the technical skills gap that is currently impacting industries across the UK. We believe that a combination of practical experience and programming knowledge will prepare our students for entry into the programming industry and we train our students through a mix of classroom style learning and project work.
For the duration of the 16 weeks our students work as an agile team, based in our offices in the beautiful Widcombe Crescent in central Bath.
