What our people say

‘Before I joined FDM, I didn’t have any IT experience but had a passion for web development, so I applied for the Software Development stream (Java). I’m now placed in the insurance sector as a Data Analyst where I have the chance to further expand my technical skills’ 

Farayi Mukada, Java Data Analyst

‘After graduation, I decided to join FDM and explore the great range of career development opportunities they offer. During my time in the academy I was able to gain new skills and qualifications which are now very critical in my role. I’m currently working for the UK's biggest public service department and, as part of my role, I take on multiple projects to enable the business to transform.’
