Our mission at TechSwitch is to provide people from all walks of life with the opportunity to become expert Software Developers. Our training bootcamp will help you expand your horizons, learn new skills and enter a new industry.
You don’t need to have been coding for years or have studied computer science to be a great software developer. If you love to learn and problem-solve then you could be a great developer too!
If you have gained skills and experience in previous roles, you bring something extra to the table. As a developer, you may have more dimensions than someone who went through a traditional route into coding.
We know that changing career can be scary but we'll support you throughout the whole process. From learning the skills necessary to be a confident coder, to finding employment after completing the course, we will be there every step of the way.
Every learner has a dedicated trainer responsible for their well-being. They provide stability and continuity and will answer any questions you might have.
No! If you have done some hobby coding in your spare time that might help you find your feet quicker but it definitely isn't necessary.
The course consists of 12 weeks of training, followed by an 18-month job placement in industry with the option of making that a permanent role.
No! No previous experience is required. We will provide all the training you need to become a confident software developer.
The course is full-time (Mon-Fri, roughly 9:30am-5:30pm). The initial 12-week bootcamp is based in our offices in north London.
I came in to this course with almost no prior knowledge of programming and through it secured a full-time developer role. Whilst the course is fast-paced and challenging, Techswitch does a great job of ensuring you feel truly valued and supported throughout by offering great teaching, frequent one-on-one chats and, if you need it, extra mentoring and tasks to make sure you nail those core concepts. The course has undoubtedly fast-tracked my career, and with the added safety net of expert tuition, top-end technology and even mock interviewing, I would highly recommend Techswitch to anyone looking to get in to software development.
The Techswitch course has been such a great experience for me personally. While coding was what drew me to software development, the Techswitch course develops you to be a good software engineer. Of course, there’s a lot of coding involved as well! But less common topics, that are brushed off in online tutorials, are given equal (and sometimes more) importance. Things like learning git, the importance of testing, and working in an agile way have definitely given me a true understanding of what it means to be a real software engineer. On top of that, the actual course itself is really fun which makes coming in everyday so motivating and gets you genuinely excited to start a career in software development.
The course starts with writing basic code and very quickly develops into larger and more challenging projects. Each week involves new techniques and technologies across a wide range of applications which provides the basis which you can build upon independently or with the help of the trainer. It not only teaches you how to program but shows you what a job might involve in the industry to prepare you for a job in the future.
