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. However, upon application we will provide you with pre-reading which will enable you to take the technical tests we set. Please give yourself time to study this before taking the tests.
The course and placement are both full-time so you would be unable to study alongside taking our bootcamp and working during the placement. If you are taking evening classes then you might be able to do these alongside the placement, as with any job, but the 12-week course is intensive and requires a lot of study in your spare time so we wouldn't recommend taking classes alongside it.
The course is full-time Monday-Friday. The initial 12-week bootcamp is based in our offices in north London. Teaching hours are between 10am-4pm but we ask learners to do at least 2 hours of individual study outside of these hours to make sure they complete the course successfully.
This varies from course to course depending on the companies we are working at the time. Our current cohort are studying Java followed by React but throughout the course we introduce our learners to a wide variety of languages and aim to make them good full-stack developers, not specialists in a particular technology.
The course fee is £500. However, we refund this to you in full upon completing the course. We also have means tested bursaries available.
The first three weeks will be spent on a bootcamp going through a series of exercises which increase in difficulty as you go along. Following this we will introduce you to another technology and start working on mini-projects. For the final four weeks you will complete a group project. Throughout the course there will also be training in Agile practices, soft skills and interview techniques.
Cohorts range in size between 5-10 learners. We keep them small to make sure you get enough one-to-one time with the trainer.
Yes! We won't force you to take a placement you don't want but this is also why we can't guarantee that we find you a job as it is up to you to interview at for the placement and accept the role.
Not during the 12 week training, but once you have successfully completed that we will pay you a £30,000 salary.
The vast majority of our placements are based in London but on the off-chance they are based elsewhere we will offer a relocation package.
