Triangirls Newsletter - Issue #41 ✨ BrainStation Scholarship Programme ✨

This past May, we worked with BrainStation to share their mission to increase accessibility to essential digital skills for underrepresented groups, regardless of an individual’s background and economic circumstances. We believe it’s crucial to make digital skills accessible for everyone as we try to change the number of women and non-binary people in tech.
Due to the success of the last tuition-free bootcamp, BrainStation is hosting it again in August to help even more people gain the skills they need to begin a career in tech!

🧠 Triangirls X BrainStation
Hearing success stories from the community and the relationships we’ve helped to facilitate really makes our hearts sing. Not only do we love learning and gaining new skills, it’s a core part of our community and a focus at all of our events. We’ve found that conversations and discussions about what it’s like working in tech and how we can take actionable steps to create fulfilling careers and personal lives has been truly valuable.
We’re often asked how people can switch careers or find mentors and how they can learn more. Naturally we’ll always recommend reaching out to others in the community to learn about their experiences but some of our community have taken the plunge and are learning on the job or by taking part in a bootcamp. There’s no single route when it comes to changing your career path!
🙌 Start A Career In Tech For Free
BrainStation’s upcoming London bootcamps in Web Development, Data Science, and UX Design will be tuition-free (regular tuition £9,500). Acceptance into the programmes will be decided on a competitive basis. 
To support Brainstation’s core mission to empower the next generation of tech professionals, they have collaborated with their network of hiring partner organisations to make their in person programmes free for all students. This is possible thanks to support from companies like Microsoft, EY, and Twitter.
Over the last decade, BrainStation has offered these life-changing programmes across multiple cities, working with over 500 instructors from the most innovative organisations, and a talent network of more than 6,500 hiring partners at over 2,700 companies. More than 90% of our graduates find work at companies such as:
🌏 Google
🛍 Shopify
💻 Accenture
🧘 lululemon
🙌 BrainStation Success Stories
And don’t just take our word for it. Hear from people who participated in the last cohort:
Brainstation Graduate Aya Ataya

“What stood out for me is that BrainStation teaches in the same way that you work in the industry. For example, we rigorously followed the Double Diamond design model, which was the one I used in my internship. And then I applied for a BrainStation scholarship and that made the course even more affordable and practical.”

“Women, especially those who are career changers, need the time to explore their options and transferrable skills in a constructive way before deciding whether tech is the right path for them to succeed. But know that you’re capable of not only shattering the glass ceiling but disrupting it for future female tech leaders to walk into safer and calmer waters.” — Christina Brown, Data Analytics Course Graduate, Summer 2022
