Manchester-based coding bootcamp Northcoders was named Business of the Year at the 15th Annual Chamber Business Awards.

The organisation runs coding bootcamps for the North, providing the region with digital skills through coding courses.

The awards, which took place on Thursday 29th November at Tobacco Dock in London, also saw the team take the top spot in the Education and Business Partnership category.

Companies from across the UK came together at the gala dinner which was hosted by TV presenter Jenni Falconer to mark the outstanding achievements of both UK firms and Chambers of Commerce.

2018 also saw Northcoders being selected as one of the country's brightest tech stars in Creative England's CE50 list.

“Winning these two awards is a fantastic achievement for the entire Northcoders team and all our students and is testament to their hard work and dedication,” said Northcoders director Amul Batra.

“As a business, we are committed to making the tech sector accessible to everyone, to deliver a coding education like no other and to provide skilled programmers for our hiring partners.

“For us, it’s also all about putting community at the heart of everything we do so receiving this kind of national recognition is a fantastic end to the year.”
