Why a Coding Bootcamp

What is the purpose of a Coding Bootcamp? - To grow employability, fast!

Syllabus Coverage

We continuosly revise our syllabus to cover the changing demands of the modern workplace. Our recruitment and consulting partner, Compuways, has over 30 years experience in the IT Recruitment and Consulting industry and helps us to stay in touch with the job market.

Practical Skills

We believe in Einstein's motto: 'Learning is experience - everything else is just information'. We ensure that everything learned is adequately applied. Applying your knowledge to the standard of employment, not only hones your skills, but also helps you to retain your knowledge better

All-Rounder Skills

To be succesful in your software development career, you must not only learn the software languages and tools, you must also be able to collaborate, share and lead. We make sure our students implement these with our methodology

Return on Investment

If compared to a University Degree, it costs about a third to a quarter of the price. The duration is also a third or a quarter less before you can start earning money. Often University graduates do not end-up in Full-Stack developer roles and earn less as a result.

Interview Preparation

We have a job prep phase during which we help our students to prepare their CV's and portfolios for employment. We also have mock-interview training to ensure you ace your interviews quickly

Lifetime Career Support

Often in your career you will have choices to make, questions to ask etc. We never close the door to our alumni and often ask them to advise and motivate our current students

Courtney turned 18 in the year she enrolled in the Java Bootcamp. It was 2020, the year of Covid. She was a hard worker and one of the first to finish her assignments and got placed at a well-known financial institution.

A bootcamp is an intensive and immersive learning experience that typically lasts for a few weeks or months. These programs are designed to help people quickly develop new skills in a particular field. Bootcamps often involve a combination of lectures, hands-on projects, and teamwork, and they may be led by experienced professionals or educators with expertise in the subject matter.
