The Jump offers part-time and full-time remote coding bootcamps that are taught from London, UK, but which are accessed remotely from anywhere. These are programmes of in-depth software-engineering training & optional career-change support that are designed... Read More to enable you to make the jump from little or no coding experience to being able to develop and deploy enterprise grade software to a professional standard. All our bootcamps are live and interactive and you participate remotely via Zoom, with an experienced instructor, who is also an experienced developer.
Our part-time coding bootcamps enable you to train for longer so that you can play with ideas and concepts and reach a higher standard. Being part-time also means you can train without having to quit your job or lose your income.
If time is of the essence, then our full-time coding bootcamps will enable you to make the jump sooner
Our part-time Front-End Bootcamp runs for 22 weeks and our full-time Front-End Bootcamp runs for 9 week: Monday 24th August to Wednesday 10th February 2021. It is the first three quarters of our Full-Stack Bootcamp.
This bootcamp is right for you if you want to focus on client-side development and don’t explicitly need to know server-side development.
I loved my experience at the Jump. I found that everyone at the Jump was incredibly supportive and had a lot of time for me. It felt that they were passionate about what they do, they enjoy it and want to help people find the same thing. My cohort was... Read More small (5 people) and full-time. The course was challenging but incredibly rewarding and enjoyable. It felt like you didn’t know anything until you moved on to the next thing where you realised you did actually know the previous thing quite well. My tutor, Russell, was fantastic and always there to answer questions whether detailed or conceptual, about code or the industry. I was surprised that within a short period of time I felt I had the confidence to speak like a developer, I was surprised at the transition. Once the course finished we had some really great advice from Rob that helped us understand what people hiring are looking for, how they think, and how to prepare and present ourselves at each stage. This process was individualised and incredibly useful for this first job and no-doubt throughout the rest of my career. Within a couple months I had a multiple job offers and am excited for my first role in the tech industry to start next week. I definitely couldn’t have got the job I ended up with without the Jump. I would recommend anyone thinking about doing a bootcamp to arrange a call with Rob and find out about the Jump.
The Jump is a fantastic school that from day 1 had my best interest in mind. They are a family run business and my particular cohort was small and intimate which made for a great learning experience. The full time course is very full on and is a lot to... Read More take in but our instructor Russell was always there to help with anything. I could always jump on a quick call when I was stuck. The highlight for me was the hackathon which seemed daunting at first but we all came away from it having learnt a lot and really enjoyed it. I highly recommend this course!
The Jump is Great value for money. My tutor James is still supporting and answering some of my questions (obviously not asking to do my job for me). Support you get is invaluable, it is up to you to utilise the Teaching Assistants that are available along... Read More all the Lectures and home assignments. Don't get me wrong - you still need to be motivated and do the work. But if you are someone who is ready to tackle some complicated problems - this is for you! For me the biggest take away was all the code i have from the assignments to use for reference - i feel ready to tackle every code challenge throw at me it might take time, but i WILL figure it out.
"In-depth course materials in a very encouraging environment"
I’ll start by saying that I would 100% recommend The Jump to anyone who wants to get into web development. Regardless of your tech knowledge, or the lack thereof, as long as you’re willing to put the work in and is enthusiastic to learn, then The Jump... Read More has your back for everything else. As someone who is changing career from a non-tech background, you can imagine how scary it is to take the leap and make that big decision. From the get-go, Rob and James made it feel so accessible and you immediately get the essence that you are joining a family. One main element that I’m sure resonates with everyone whose been through The Jump is that we are treated as individuals rather than just a statistic. In addition to that, the content of the course is top-notch! They really took the time to create in-depth lesson materials that contains best practices and up-to-date information on technologies that are in-demand today. The tutor, Russell, was very dedicated and treated us not only as eager learners but also as professionals. His deep knowledge and contagious enthusiasm for everything techy makes the lessons engaging and really prompts you to want to know more. Importantly, it was just really fun. I always looked forward to my Tuesday and Thursday nights to agonise over new information from Russell. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely not easy and it highly requires your efforts; but as long as you’re willing to learn, the difficult parts of it becomes a welcomed challenge. There is always someone available to give guidance when you need it. So, what happens after? Thankfully, your relationship with The Jump doesn’t end when the lessons end. That’s probably one of the most important aspects of this course too. They are dedicated to help you through the application process for you to get that very important first job! I definitely needed lots of help in that area and talking to Rob, James, Katie and Russell eased my worries. From CVs, to job hunting process, to interview preps, to just general motivational push, they were very supportive through it all. Within 2 weeks of firing out applications, I landed my first role as a Junior Full-Stack Engineer in a digital engineering consultancy company. It took less than a year for me to completely change career and I honestly can’t imagine being able to do that successfully, within that timeframe, without The Jump. And as a bonus, their Socials are a great way to meet the people that you mainly see in squares on zoom and others that are in the same position as you! Plus, you MIGHT get to see Russell’s small phone in person! (You’ll have to join to know😉). So if you want to get into coding, join The Jump! it’s worth every penny.
The Jump is worth every penny and it has been the best decision I have made. I had decided to make a career change from aviation to web development and The Jump helped make it happen so quickly and smoothly. What put’s The Jump above other similar courses... Read More is that you’re not treated like a number. From the moment I expressed interest to the moment I got a job and even after that, everyone at The Jump truly cares about my learning and my career. This is achieved as they have small class sizes, about 10-15 per class I think at a maximum. This means your course mates and tutor can get to know you. You can ask questions during the lesson and have fun, it’s a very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere to be in. The owners, Rob, James and Katie, have created a truly exceptional course which goes into great depth on many subjects. By the end of the course you will have a brilliant portfolio of projects that demonstrate the knowledge you have gained. Don’t get me wrong, software engineering may be one of the most challenging things to learn BUT the support network of other students as well as passionate, dedicated and knowledgeable tutors makes it significantly easier to do. Anyone who is truly driven to become a software developer will become one with the help of this course. Once the course is over doesn’t mean you won’t continue to get support from everyone at The Jump. They will help you with projects, creating a CV, interview preparation and career advice. Two weeks after finishing the last lesson I had a fantastic job offer from a large bank as a software engineer. So, in less than a year I had made a big career change and got myself on the ladder and I have The Jump to thank for that. 11/10 would recommend to anyone who is looking to become a software engineer.
The Jump really offers a next level, in-depth course, which I just couldn't seem to find anywhere else. The teaching by Russell was fantastic. Everything was explained so clearly and there was never a question he wasn't able to answer and he was always... Read More able to explain the reasoning behind something. He was also always available throughout the week for help with any difficulties that had cropped up from the homework or whilst reviewing a lesson. What's so great about The Jump is that you can tell that literally everyone involved is really passionate about creating a really high quality course. I always felt like I mattered as an individual and not just as a number or statistic to brag about. I've come away from the course feeling like I'm ready to get a job as a developer (which I have!), which I'm not sure a lot of courses can offer. Also, the fact I could study alongside my full time job was great and meant I didn't have to lose out on income whilst learning. Would 100% recommend for anyone wanting to really get into coding seriously.
Changing careers is hard enough, but this coding school was just what I needed. The Jump are top tier quality, teaching you what is in demand in the job market and doing so with unparalleled support and humanity, which at the end of the day (especially... Read More during a pandemic), makes all the difference. Even though this school is continuing to flourish and expand, as a student you will not feel like a number. Not only are class sizes moderately small, but these guys are kind, down to earth, brilliant (of course) and genuinely care about how you do if you are willing to put the effort in. They provide the space and resources for you to learn at your own pace, while regularly checking in with you through the programme and job search and seeing how they can help. There were many times where I was struggling during the course, and I cannot emphasise enough how that support was always there. I am incredibly grateful for my instructor, Russell, for his patience and always putting in the extra 1to1’s in the calendar to help get me there. Apart from being a wiz in his technical craft, he is an excellent instructor that puts the effort into reframing concepts and making them more digestible, all the while adding in humour and the much needed hope at times. After about of month of applying to jobs I have already accepted an offer. Once again, The Jump was there to help during that time (from interview prep to debriefs and encouragement) and offer advice where needed. No doubt is this family run company, a special group of individuals. I would wholeheartedly recommend The Jump to anyone.
"Very in depth course with amazing staff! (Full stack course)"
The single most important thing that puts The Jump above other coding bootcamps is the fact that the owners, Rob and James, care so much about each individual student. It's clear from day one that it's their mission for you to succeed in whatever it is... Read More you choose to do after completing The Jump. Secondly, the caliber of teaching provided by The Jump is astounding. I was taught by Russell who is not only a brilliant guy but also one of the most knowledgeable and experienced developers I've ever met. He's extremely dedicated to teaching and his passion really comes across during lessons. As for the course itself, the tech stack taught is exactly what the technology market is looking for, with myself being taught React.js for handling the front end and Express.js for the back. Both techniques are hugely popular at the moment with more and more web applications transitioning to them every day. All in I'd have to say if you want to upskill or totally make the change to the tech industry (you don't need any prior coding experience for The Jump) then go for it! I have secured a job in the tech industry within a month of applying for positions, so the skills they teach are clearly in demand!
"Fast-paced, comprehensive experience with fantastic career support"
I decided to enrol with The Jump after much searching for a course that I could do alongside my current job. From the very first call I had with Rob and James, I had knew I had made the right decision to choose them as it was obvious there was a genuine... Read More passion to help and determination to see you succeed which remained throughout. In terms of the course itself, as to be expected, the learning curve is steep. However James provided fantastic support and was on hand if needed. The content covered is up to date and focuses on frameworks that are current and highly sought after in the industry, which was a huge bonus. Perhaps most impressive about the course however is the level of support that is available on completion. From my own experience, despite graduating over a year ago, I was able to ask advice in preparation for an interview. Both Rob and James were on hand at short notice and continue to provide support if needed. From the research I did in to other bootcamps, it is this attitude which stood out to me the most. By joining The Jump you don't simply become a number, but the staff take the time to get to know you and are genuinely invested in your future. I've no doubt that the skills/knowledge I gained during the course were instrumental in securing a role as a Developer and I can't thank the team enough for that.
