In partnership with Coder Academy we’re excited to introduce CODE/IRL, a genuine career pathway for women wanting to launch their tech career with a




  • Coder Academy are a recognised training organisation (RTO), and unlike many other job-ready training programs, by completing <Code/IRL> you’ll attain a Diploma of Information Technology recognised and respected by leading tech companies across Australia.
  • Less than 25% of Australian tech graduates are female. That’s a pretty clear indicator that women encounter far too many barriers on the journey to becoming a professional coder. That’s why we’ve tailored a women-only course. This unique set-up will allow you to study in an environment where you’ll be encouraged to push your own boundaries, take up space and – most importantly – define and achieve a successful career in tech.
  • More than just a coding course, <Code/IRL> provides you with over 1000 face-to-face hours. You’ll be part of a supported cohort and have exclusive access to the Code Like a Girl Mentoring Network. With a team of over 100 women in technology, you’ll have on-demand access to chat, ask questions and make life-long connections.
  • Last, but not least, <Code/IRL> graduates will be given priority access to Code Like a Girl’s internship program, giving you the opportunity to walk straight into a paid internship on completion of your course. 75% of our interns are offered permanent roles after placement.
