The La Fosse Academy model


We only accept the top 2%

All applicants go through a rigorous assessment period before being selected. We test for both attitude and aptitude through a 5-stage interview process, selecting based on values, problem-solving, and reasoning abilities, and their passion for tech. Our course will always be free for students who complete their requirements, in order to attract people based on ability, not the ability to pay.


Techniques over tools

Our 12-week, intensive curriculum is delivered in a real-life tech environment. It's broken down into four modules led by our expert coaches, covering both individual assessment and the creation, shipping, and presenting of commercial products. Students work both individually and with peers, and are assessed throughout to ensure they are keeping up with the standards needed for placement.


Adding value from day one

After having the chance to attend our final presentation day and interview some of our associates, you’ll be able to engage them on a 2-year contract in your business. We’ll facilitate continued upskilling of associates and their managers through bespoke training and ongoing support, and as a La Fosse Academy employee, they’ll receive access to our well-being services and other community benefits.

How it works


Our rigorous recruitment & assessment guarantees quality individuals and reduces risk of mis-hires


Our students complete 12-weeks intensive training in the latest technologies and career skills.


They are then embedded into your teams for two years, ready to have an immediate impact and supported by us to develop, before giving you the option to hire them permanently at the end of the engagement.

Hear from our customers

We’ve been privileged to work with numerous high-growth and market-leading businesses. Hear what they have to say about the impact a consistent source of new talent has made to their operations.

"A lot of people talk about the importance of hiring diverse teams, especially within software engineering, but then fail to change the way they hire.

I was attracted to La Fosse Academy because I'm passionate about developing talent. Diverse teams lead to better debates and ultimately better decisions. They also create healthier teams with better opportunities for succession planning."

Julian Browne

"La Fosse Academy struck us as a really good way of us bringing in fresh, young talent so that we could work alongside them and they could help us with some of the tasks that we had in our project work. The main benefits were that we didn't have to go through all the hard work of actually running a graduate programme from start to finish. This is a great opportunity for our talent pipeline coming down the line and we are really looking forward to what the next 12-24 months produce for us."
