- Life changing- 3/16/2022R • Software Developer • Student • Verified via LinkedInLast year i was so close to paying £10k plus for online coding courses but thankfully I applied for this course and got in. Having this opportunity propelled me on to my current role which i will forever be grateful for.
My favourite thing about the Bootcamp was how they cared about our mental health. We were given the option of having free counselling sessions along with our own personal mentors who were there to help us with applying for jobs and solving code.
My only problem is i wish the experience could have been in person but with the pandemic i guess that was not possible.
- Best Career Decision I have made- 7/7/2021Panama • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Development • Campus: Birmingham • Verified via LinkedInThis course was amazing! Not only did it provide everything that I needed to be a full-stack developer, but it also created a support network that fosters great relationships for employment and further upskilling. The course content itself allowed me to try various programmes; and the empowerment sessions, external partner events and panel discussions gave me the opportunity to engage with people in various areas in technology.
I left the course with self-confidence, a community, new friends and a clear direction in life with a road map to get there.
I would highly recommend anyone looking to change careers and has the opportunity to take this to go for it. You will never regret it.
- You won't regret it!!- 5/6/2021Desiree • Graduate • Verified via LinkedInSigning up for the BlackCodher bootcamp in a global pandemic was one of the best decisions I've made in 2020. The whole experience was so impactful and I've met the most inspiring people during this time. Graduates of BlackCodher ended up securing Software Developer roles in small - big sized businesses. Did I mention that the bootcamp is for free??!!! Sign up. You won't regret it.
- Best Decision Ever!- 4/29/2021Abi • Graduate System Engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Development • Campus: BirminghamAs a graduate of Black CodHer, this was hands-down the best decision I've ever made. I applied as a complete beginner and was surprised by how highly knowledgeable, helpful and patient the instructors and volunteers are. The curriculum is a great reflection of the skills companies are currently looking for, putting you in good stead for launching a career in tech! The bootcamp lasts 6 months but the time flew by really quickly. Not only were we taught how to code but we also had EmpowHerment events where we would get the opportunity to build on our soft-skills.
Not only did I become a competent software engineer after this program, I also now have a strong network of fellow black female engineers!
