Learn IT, Grow IT, Live IT
The Academy follows a structured ‘Learn IT, Grow IT, Live IT’ model across the two-year programme:
LEARN IT: You’ll receive 8 weeks of ‘core’ training (an introduction to a little of everything – taught from the very beginning, there’s no requirement for previous experience or knowledge). We then follow up with up to 4 weeks of additional specialist training (which area of core training did you like best? Let’s explore it more with you! Business Analysis, Test Automation, Software Development and more!). All Ten10 training is delivered by our brilliant team of industry experts – all the trainers are ex-Ten10 Consultants themselves. Core training is conducted remotely, but for additional training. We offer free accommodation (and Yorkshire Tea) in Leeds during this period to all trainees – it’s your choice whether you’d like to move in!
GROW IT: Next, you’ll have some time for self-development via self-driven training, lets focus on YOU, would you benefit from some further 1-2-1 training? Would you like to gain a professional industry certification? Ten10 will fund your self-development and industry qualifications.
LIVE IT: After your training is complete, you will join a Ten10 team on a live project with one of our clients. We’ll work with you to determine which type of project would suit best (based on your interests, your preference for working environment, skillset post-training and client demand). Our clients include fashion brands, market-leading supermarkets, various Governmental departments, professional services, charities, healthcare providers, law firms and financial institutions. As the two-year Academy comes to an end, you may choose to continue your career with Ten10 in our Consultancy or be offered a permanent role with your client.
We welcome applications from all academic and employment backgrounds, you don’t need to have any prior experience in IT as we will provide you with all of the training and support you need to succeed in your new career.
You’ll need to complete a short online application and if successful, you’ll be invited to a telephone interview during which, our talent team will talk you through the details of The Academy and answer all of your questions. Next, you’ll complete an online test to assess where your natural aptitudes for Tech currently lie and finally, you’ll be invited to an assessment centre, where you’ll meet the Wellbeing Team, Training Team and a variety of Ten10 Consultants.

“If you love to learn, working in tech is one of the most enjoyable careers - the learning literally never stops. Society often portrays tech as men speedily writing code in silence. When it isn’t! Tech is really team-focused and collaborative, and the career prospects are endless. I’m always surrounded by people from a variety of ages and backgrounds doing a wide variety of work.”
“Last Summer, I had just graduated with a degree in English Literature and applied to Ten10 on a whim because I found Tech interesting – its all around us. I can’t believe how much I’ve learned in one short year; I’m working for a huge client as a Software Tester and delivering value every day. I had zero experience in Tech, but thanks to the training and support I have received in this programme, I know what a great career I have ahead of me.”
“Ten10 are really invested in making the tech world as accessible as possible to all, including women. They often have initiatives where they celebrate women in tech. There is no limit to what we can do!”
“From my cultural background I didn't see many women, specifically black women in tech, especially coming from my degree background (Psychology). I also thought having ADHD meant I would struggle in an office environment; but Ten10 and my client project have been very supportive and welcoming.”
