At futureproof, we’re people-first and passionate about diversity.

After over a decade of matching top tech talent with market-leading clients through our parent company La Fosse Associates, we built futureproof to tackle two big problems within the technology sector:

  1. a huge skills shortage, especially within software engineering

  2. a lack of diversity at all seniority levels

We want to create a world where the best talent, regardless of background, will build the tech of tomorrow.

What do we do?

We select the top 2% of talent, training them in full-stack software development and technology fundamentals then mentoring and coaching them during a two-year placement in tech.

Our course is free to associates because we believe in ability, not just the ability to pay. The best talent is diverse. 


It’s all very well learning the essentials, but what happens when these essentials aren’t, well, ‘essential’ anymore? By teaching the fundamentals of software development, our course prepares you for anything that the fast-paced world of technology might throw at you.

In fact, less than half of our associates actually end up working as software engineers – around 60% have applied their agility and knowledge to secure roles as architects, data scientists, analysts and more! 

This programme is a 13-week training course followed up with a 2-year commercial placement.

You’ll learn how to work in an agile environment, you’ll be taught the how, what and why of code. 

You’ll learn business skills so you can connect your code to the commercial realities of work. 

You’ll be taught HTML/CSS, JavaScript, React, Python as well as how to learn languages to make you adaptable and able to code in any stack. 

This intense course utilises group projects and assignments that replicate real life as a developer. This means at the end you’ll be ready to start your career in tech. 


Your placement with one of the top UK employers lasts 2 years. You will be working on site with one of our partners but will be supported throughout by a dedicated futureproof engagement manager, there to work with you through this exciting period of growth in your career.


Our placements are across all industries and offer opportunities within a number of different positions; such as software engineers, cloud engineer, data scientists, solution architects and business analysts.


You’ll get the opportunity to be mentored by industry experts, futureproof alumni and even mentor others.

futureproof is the perfect place to build the network that will sustain you through your career. Our community comes together to support each other and continue to grow.


We encourage you to build your own brand during your placement by sharing the work you are doing with the tech eco-system.


Your tech learning doesn’t end once you finish the training. We will spend time with you to create a personal development plan and have an ever-growing post graduate curriculum tailored to support you with the knowledge you need for your placement.



"One of the most exciting experiences of my life! I feel truly privileged."

"Looking back, it was so easy to feel locked and pressured into a career choice I made when I was just 18. Straight out of Uni, starting futureproof to initiate a career switch was the best decision I'd ever made. The opportunity to upskill in a structured way like this was the best springboard I could have ever asked for, and I couldn't be happier with the skills and the job I've gained 😊"

"I honestly feel like futureproof is the best thing I've ever done. After finishing the course I feel like a world of opportunities has opened up for me that I wouldn't have had without them."

"Futureproof has allowed us to create a strong foundation in coding and get our foot into the space of an already challenging and competitive field."
