“I took full advantage of Kainos Academy. I did my work experience at Kainos and then went to CodeCamp where I heard about the company’s Earn as you Learn scheme. I applied and got a place. It’s amazing – I got my tuition fees paid, a full salary and a job at the end of it. Altogether, it’s worth up to £100,000! In 2017, I got the chance to return to my Kainos Academy roots and coordinated CodeCamp. It’s been a whirlwind few years, and I’ve loved every minute.”

“I did my placement year here and was offered a full-time job upon completion of my degree. As a graduate at Kainos it’s safe to say I’ve achieved a lot. Since returning, I’ve project managed Kainos AppCamp, delivered Kainos A.I.Camp, trained our CEO in machine learning, and now I’m working with customers using new and exciting technologies.”
