TechPixie 2015 & 2017 Cohorts

“An excellent course! A fantastic bunch of women, an amazing life coach and some great teaching. I came away with added confidence, new skills and some great friends. As a direct result I now have a job that I really enjoy which has the flexibility I need while my children are young. It helped me rediscover my passion to learn and taught me that it is never too late to start something new. Thank you TechPixies!” – Phoebe Larcombe (now managing the social media for the Gone for Good App)


Meirion Hood

TechPixie 2015 Cohort

“I was blown away by the TechPixies course – in particular the course instructor’s  commitment to helping everyone on the course back to work. Everyone found some aspect of digital marketing that they love – whether it’s design, tech, data analysis or writing that killer tweet. One of the strengths of the course is in helping you to spot where your talent lies. Apply for the course – you won’t regret it!” – Meirion Hood (now working for

Helen Moss-Black

TechPixie 2015 Cohort

“Applying for this course was a giant leap out of my comfort zone – with no previous marketing experience at all. The learning curve has been steep but one of the many things that sets this course above the rest is the learning environment: it is so supportive. The course encourages a skill-share culture whereby everyone has a voice and no question is ever too silly (and I’ve asked plenty!).” – Helen Moss-Black (now working as COO (job share) for TechPixies)

Anna Meachin

TechPixie 2015 Cohort

“Life changing! So much to learn, access to the latest thinking, supportive coaching, real-life client experience and a group of like-minded women. Over a year later I’m still learning from this programme and the network it has given me. Best of all – I’ve been able to combine pre-kids career with new skills to take on a flexible role in a job I love.”  – Anna Meachin (now working for Career Innovation)

Heidi Evans

TechPixie 2015 Cohort

“If you are thinking of going back to work after a career break, but feel that you may lack the confidence or need to update your skills, then the TechPixies program is for you! A hugely supportive environment with like-minded people and a really creative, practical approach to training. I couldn’t recommend TechPixies more highly.” – Heidi Evans  (now managing the graphic design for TechPixies)

Verity Arndt

TechPixie 2015 Cohort

“After trying to return to work with two small children and finding it tough, I took some time out to reconsider my options. The skills and support I got from Techpixies helped me see my value in the workplace and rediscover my confidence. I’m now back working part time in a great Oxfordshire company that gets the value of flexibility.” – Verity Arndt (now Global Marketing Communications Manager at Oxford Instruments)
