Leeds based Northcoders – the coding school for the North – is launching a brand new eight week full-time and fully remote course that will teach people how to code from home. The first course will start on Thursday, April 30.
With millions currently furloughed, and unemployment expected to rise over the coming months, Northcoders has created Web Development: Remote in response to the current crisis and is designed for those who are looking to change career, upskill or retrain.
Participants will learn skills designed to help them become an employable web developer in a course delivered by the same Northcoders experts who teach their multi-award-winning coding bootcamp. Dedicated one to one tuition, fast tutor support via video, voice and screenshare, and access to a community of more than 500 other developers will all be available.
Chris Hill – CEO of Northcoders – said: “These are unprecedented times, so we’ve adapted to help provide access to the very best coding tuition that there is. Our aim is to turn these difficult times into an opportunity for people to upskill or retrain.
Chris added: We’ve worked hard to create a cutting edge curriculum that will deliver the skills to anyone who is interested in learning an in-demand new skill that can also help them kick-start a career switch or progress their existing career path when the crisis passes.”
Over the past year, Northcoders was selected as one of the country’s brightest tech stars in Creative England’s CE50 list and was named Business of the Year at the 15th Annual Chamber Business Awards.
It has also launched scholarship schemes and a deferred payment programme aimed at women and gender minorities, as well as those who identify as BAME or LGBTQ+, have a disability or have had limited access to education, to help address diversity in tech. The firm was also recently appointed by leading holiday company On the Beach to be its academy training partner and it relocated its Manchester campus to Manchester Technology Centre.
