Manchester coding bootcamp Northcoders has expanded its teaching team with two new tutors.

Anthony Medina and Paul Rogerson are both qualified coders and will be responsible for delivering Northcoders’ curriculum, mentoring students on a group and one-to-one basis.

Medina and Rogerson will also undertake research and stay abreast of industry news, technology trends and changes in tech.

Chris Hill, chief of operations at Northcoders, said: "We saw real talent in Anthony and Paul.

"More than that, we saw people with empathy and a natural ability to share their expertise - natural teachers - who will be a great asset to Northcoders and to our students."

Before joining Northcoders, Medina taught English in South Korea while Rogerson previously worked at an international accountancy firm in IT risk consulting and assurance.

"I find helping people to learn really rewarding - and I love coding - so Northcoders is the perfect combination of my two passions," Medina said.

"It's a truly forward thinking and dynamic business so it’s incredibly exciting to now be part of its journey."

Over the past few months, Northcoders was selected as one of the country's brightest tech stars in Creative England's CE50 list.

It also launched its new Developer Pathway Course and first ever software apprenticeship programme that aims to drive participation in the tech sector.
