"Best coding bootcamp!"

I joined the School of Code bootcamp for their 3rd cohort in Jan 2020. Previously I'd only dreamt of being able to leave my career in teaching to pursue a career in tech - I thought it'd be far too much for me to afford one of the ridiculously overpriced... Read More

The School of Code teaches the most up to date tech to prepare you for a full stack developer role. This is exactly what I wanted! We learnt basic html, css and javascript and then moved on to React. We also learnt nodejs and used express servers for the back end. We also covered testing, problem solving, AWS, design, github...the list goes on and on! Not only do you learn so much, you get to build...we made full stack apps by ourselves, in pairs and in teams.

There is a one week and final four week project in which you work in teams to produce an app to solve a problem. This is invaluable experience and will really set you apart when you're looking for a new role. I loved this experience and really enjoyed working in a team to build something we were excited about.

Throughout the bootcamp we also had numerous guest speakers that came to the School of Code to talk to us about their roles, their companies, how they use tech or to teach us about new tech. This was a great way to learn from more people but also to begin extending our network.

After the bootcamp you aren't left to go and find a job on your own...the School of Code partners with Spinks recruitment and they bring the jobs to you! Companies are vetted to ensure that they are set up and prepared to support junior developers so you can be sure that your development will continue in your first role. The companies that recruit from the School of Code pay a recruitment fee, which is one of the ways that SoC is able to provide the bootcamp free of charge to learners.

Lastly, aside from all the brilliant reasons I've just listed, the School of Code is amazing because it is run by fun, caring people who put all their effort into ensuring their bootcampers succeed and are happy. I had an amazing time and was so lucky to be with a brilliant group of bootcampers who are now friends - I would 100% recommend the School of Code bootcamp to ANYBODY who wants a career in tech. You will not regret it!

"The School of Code"

The best way I can describe the School of Code in one sentence is “the absolute perfect place for someone to go from knowing almost nothing about programming to be ready for employment in only 16 weeks”. I enjoyed every minute of SoC from the moment we... Read More

"The School of Code changed my life!"

The sixteen weeks I spent at the School of Code have been mind-blowing. It’s the most incredible opportunity, and to have it be free was the cherry on top. I’m so privileged to have had this experience. I’ve gone from being able to maybe make a basic... Read More

We learned a staggering amount in four months. Not only are we now equipped with the tools to build and deploy full-stack software, but we've also studied design, UI/UX, accessibility, DevOps, testing, broader computer science topics, and so much more. Even the global pandemic couldn't stop us. The last eight weeks of the bootcamp transitioned seamlessly to fully remote working, including our four-week final projects, and the School of Code continued undaunted.

Before School of Code, I felt a bit adrift and stagnant career-wise. Although I learned a lot and met a lot of great people in my old jobs, I just wasn’t fulfilled. I had always had an inkling in the back of my mind toward technology, but it seemed really daunting to get started on my own, and I didn’t really know where to start. Thanks to the School of Code, that's completely changed - I have a brilliant foundation so that I can keep building on it and learning more. I’m genuinely excited about my career and future and looking forward to what the years ahead will bring.

"Not your Average Bootcamp - Life Changing!"

As a graduate of School of Code, who read a fair bit about bootcamps prior to attending School of Code I feel it is important to first explain why SOC is not your average bootcamp:

School of Code is a 100% FREE, (business model based on recruiter fees,... Read More

Why do this? Their aim is to help more and different types of people benefit from the tech industry - especially as we see increased unemployment, rising automation, and the rapidly changing job landscape - creating extensive social impact and tech talent - truly inspiring!

I attended the 2020 bootcamp from Jan - May and started my dream career in tech directly after the course in May as a Site Reliability Engineer at the Economist. School of Code and the Economist who ran a workshop with us during the program were able to identify a great fit between candidate, company and skillset and both sides were incredibly positive and supportive of my transition into a new career.

If this sounds like something you are interested in - I really encourage you to apply - you have nothing to lose and everything to gain both professionally and personally. If there is anyone that you think this could benefit, please send on the details or like/share School of Code on social media so we can spread the word and help as many people as possible.

Thank you School of Code for the opportunity for us to be an agents of change in tech and contribute to the transformation of the industry to include a whole range of different people full of potential! Keep doing amazing things!
