Anonymous Worst online courses out there, stay away!!! I was looking for an online course in Web Development that I could do next to my full time job, mainly on the weekends. I have tried the free versions offered by CodeAcademy and freeCodeCamp which were really good and that convinced me to take the next step and look for a proper paid course. In the end I was deciding between freeCodeCamp and the one offered by The Learning People, and TLP have convinced me to use their offering because they're offering Tutoring on top of the online program. BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER!! This online program is so bad in terms of quality (the tutor videos), content (content contains gaps so it is hard to follow what is being taught, the questions and challenges are poorly phrased so it is hard to understand what they are asking for, the questions are messy jumping from hard to way too easy, back to hard instead of building up and they're all asked at the end of a session containing several topics instead of after each topic, hints are useless as they are way too basic something like "if you want to take this course you make sure you are connected to the internet") there is no handout material or anything to support the learning. After complaining about the content they have said to me I can skip sessions - well thanks for the offer but I have paid for this course and I am taking it to learn this stuff??! Mentoring is only offered during office hours and one day a week until 9pm UK time which is not an option for me as I have a full time job. And my personal mentor doesn't respond to my emails, apparently he has left the company so I will be getting a new one. They just didn't put any effort into this online course at all and I can only advice people looking for a part time offering to stay away from this programme! I won't waste my time on this and finish it, but instead join another course offered by a different provider. They've charged me £5,000 for nothing and are not even willing to offer me parts of my money back. I am actually thinking about getting a lawyer involved as they are just not delivering what they have promised. I wish I could give them zero stars.
