The Web Developer Course is 12-weeks in length.
The most effective way to become job ready is to fully immerse yourself in learning to code, which is why our courses are a full-time commitment. Standard office hours are 8.30am - 5.30pm, Monday - Friday. These are the times that you are required to be in the office with the Coaches. Our offices are open 24/7 so you have the option to stay and work outside of these hours, should you wish.
The course is based on-site at our learning centres and you would be required to attend all of the sessions in-person. The immersive, supportive and collaborative environment will accelerate your learning compared to online alternatives.
Training will be delivered from our learning centres in either Central Bristol or Moorgate, London.
We run multiple intakes per year in both our Bristol and London learning centres. The exact start dates of courses vary year-on-year, so please get in touch to ask about dates.
We adopt a very hands-on approach to learning. You'll learn the basics of coding alongside the Coach and then put your learning into practice and enhance your knowledge by working through various challenges, games and projects. You'll be working in an Agile environment and gain experience of independent, pair and group programming.
We have chosen not to accredit our courses so that course content can be adapted in-line with changing market needs. While you will not receive a formally recognised certificate, you will secure a job, which is far more valuable!
Classes are capped at a maximum of 15 students to 2 Coaches, ensuring that you receive the best quality learning experience and one-to-one support, when needed.
4 weeks prior to the course start date, you will receive your pre-course work that is designed to provide an introduction to the coding concepts and get you working on your first personal project. You will be expected to spend a minimum of 40 hours over a 4 week period working through these challenges and submit your solutions at weekly intervals for feedback.
Any time taken off will impact your learning on the course. If you need to take some holiday you will need to agree with your Coach a suitable plan to ensure your learning is not negatively affected.
Our Coaches are a mix of industry professionals and previous students that have undergone an intense training programme to learn how to be amazing Coaches.
