*Finding and training future tech talent*
Democratising education by making it open and accessible to all talented young people (17-35 years), WeThinkCode_ sources high potential software engineers regardless of previous education, financial means or socio-economic background. Through an innovative online application process, we source top talent from all backgrounds.
At WeThinkCode_ there are no teachers, no classes, and students learn through a peer-to-peer problem solving environment. In partnership with world-class institution Ecole 42 (based in Paris and Silicon Valley), WeThinkCode_ trains young minds to become software engineers that think differently and are equipped with skills to thrive in the digital era.
*Partnering with companies looking for tech skills*
Tuition-free, our two-year course is sponsored by companies looking to thrive in the digital economy and secure their tech talent pipelines. Corporate partners provide financial support, skills development and a path to employment for students. In return, students pledge to complete two 4-month internships with corporate sponsors and work for the sponsor at the end of their studies. Corporate sponsorship is R150,000 per student, which covers the 2-year course.
