We created Developers Institute for students with a keen interest in learning, who are looking for a true pathway to employment, and want a learning environment that will genuinely prepare them for the working world. Our flagship program in Web Development builds the foundations in software programming to give you the confidence to pursue a career in tech.
Developers Institute is software development education delivered by real developers. We're building Northland's digital future, right here in our own backyard. The investment you make in yourself today, will transform your career in the future.
Study on-campus or remotely
We are set up to deliver safely and securely from your home office. We offer remote study options which can be done completely remote, or flexibly with a combination of on-campus and remote attendance. Our Whangarei campus is still home, but our programme is now open to everyone, nationwide, looking to upskill, retrain or change careers. We have rolling intakes throughout the year, so get in touch today to secure your place.
Graduate employment pathway
We’ve received funding through Te Ara Mahi and the Provincial Growth Fund to deliver on our graduate employment strategy, so we can support our students from the first day of learning to the first day of your new tech job. Our apprenticeship style model is a first for New Zealand, so if you are looking for quality education that results in real employment outcomes, let’s talk!
We are working with businesses such as Parasol, Northpower, and the Donovan Group, on curriculum and employment pathways. And this is only the beginning - our team is dedicated to building long term relationships with businesses both locally and nationally to place top graduates into jobs upon successful program completion. This apprenticeship style model is a first in New Zealand.
We also work with trusted partners like NZQA, TEC, StudyLink and RealMe to deliver a top tier education experience that meets national standards for delivery and authenticity.
If you live in Northland already, you probably don't need an explanation about why we love it here. Lengthy stretches of pristine coastline, deep blue waters, deserted hiking trails and plenty of sun. We’ve got the outdoors sorted - now we’re expanding our indoor capabilities with software development education designed by industry professionals. We offer online study options which can be done completely remote, or flexibly with a combination of on-campus and remote attendance.
From our students
I have just completed the 8 week programme and have been introduced to a whole new inspiring world. Coming from an entirely different career and retraining has been a challenge but a good one and I’m excited to continue on this path with this innovative institute.
