Incentive for Maori to train in tech industry bootcamp
The Enspiral Dev Academy, which offers an 18-week crash course for people who want to work as web developers, is looking for more Maori candidates.
It has created two diversity scholarships for its next course starting in May, one for Maori and Pasifika applicants and the other to support women and non-binary gender identities.
It says it's keen to see the diversity of the people working in digital technology reflecting the demographics of the country as a whole, but New Zealand is still far off that goal.
The full immersion boot camps are now run in both Wellington and Auckland.
Applications for the $2000 scholarships close on April 19.
