The WeShape Tech Pathway is an innovative career accelerator designed to empower and propel underrepresented talent driven by a passion for technology. Fast trackers are technical consultants ready to be deployed alongside existing WeShape project squads to continue to add further value to engagements.
Partnering with renowned education institutions, we offer a unique pathway that starts with a rigorous 9-week intensive coding bootcamp in either full stack software or data engineering.
To maximise success, our fast trackers benefit from the guidance of both a technical mentor and a career mentor, both of whom are industry leaders with firsthand experience in overcoming the challenges our fast trackers will face.
In addition to mentorship, WeShape provides a comprehensive learning and development plan designed to expand upon the foundational knowledge acquired during their bootcamp. Our goal is to mould individuals into well-rounded and proficient technical consultants, equipping them with the skills they need to excel in a variety of engagements.
We're on hand through every step of the way to ensure that our fast trackers are motivated and supported throughout – and ready to make their mark on the world. It's our way of showing our commitment to the tech stars of tomorrow.

Our fast trackers benefit from the guidance of both a technical mentor and a career mentor, both of whom are industry leaders with firsthand experience in overcoming the challenges our fast trackers will face.
