TechPixies: Helping Mums Upskill & Return to Work

Our goal for the next 12 months is to provide vital tech skills to 100 women, helping them regain their confidence and return to work.

We did it!

On 25th Apr 2017 we successfully raised £7,097 of £5,000 target with 76 supporters in 28 days

New stretch target

Wow! We reached our target of £5,000! Let's not stop there... help us get to £10,000 so we can help even more women. 

The TechPixie programme works  because it is face to face, during term time and  affordable.  We currently offer a web development course and a digital marketing crash course. The women who have completed our programme have this to say about it:

"Life changing! So much to learn, access to the latest thinking, supportive coaching, real-life client experience and a group of like-minded women. Over a year later I'm still learning from this programme and the network it has given me. Best of all - I've been able to combine pre-kids career with new skills to take on a flexible role in a job I love."  - Anna Meachin (now working for  Career Innovation)

"After trying to return to work two small children and finding it tough, I took some time out to reconsider my options. The skills and support I got from Techpixies helped me see my value in the workplace and rediscover my confidence. I'm now back working part time in a great Oxfordshire company that gets the value of flexibility." - Verity Arndt (now working for Oxford Instruments) 

"Applying for this course was a giant leap out of my comfort zone - with no previous marketing experience at all. The learning curve has been steep but one of the many things that sets this course above the rest is the learning environment: it is so supportive. The course encourages a skill-share culture whereby everyone has a voice and no question is ever too silly (and I've asked plenty!)." - Helen Moss-Black (now working for Made with Joy Limited)

"I was blown away by the TechPixies course - in particular the course instructor's  commitment to helping everyone on the course back to work. Everyone found some aspect of digital marketing that they love - whether it's design, tech, data analysis or writing that killer tweet. One of the strengths of the course is in helping you to spot where your talent lies. Apply for the course - you won't regret it!" - Meirion Hood (now working for

"If you are thinking of going back to work after a career break, but feel that you may lack the confidence or need to update your skills, then the TechPixies program is for you! A hugely supportive environment with like-minded people and a really creative, practical approach to training. I couldn't recommend TechPixies more highly." - Heidi Evans  (now working  on digital marketing for pampeano)

Our goal for the next 12 months is to provide vital tech skills to 100 women, helping them regain their confidence and return to work. Our 5 year plan is to  reach 1000  women. Will  you join us on this journey?
