Career centers and workforce development grants are a key resource for unemployed/underemployed workers looking to re-skill. Around 12 million people have contacted their local career centers this year, which is 8.5 million more than in 2019.

But these programs can be difficult to navigate, so we did the legwork for you – read our guide to finding a workforce development grant for bootcamp in 2021.

Schools and universities may be scrambling to figure out remote learning, but coding bootcamps have essentially been preparing for this since 2013. Online coding bootcamps already use Zoom video, Slack, GitHub, and VS Code Live Share for pair programming, online lectures, and to connect mentors and instructors with students. Of course, you can learn to code online – but it doesn’t stop there! Maybe you’ve needed to learn SQL for a while, or sharpen your data science skills, or wrap your head around UX Design. All of these digital skills are being taught online (not to mention, these are jobs that can be done remotely). Online bootcamps have been perfecting the online learning experience for years – and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many in-person bootcamps are launching remote options. If you’re dreaming of a career change while stuck indoors, working from home, or quarantined, then start here – we've rounded up all of the scholarships for anyone impacted by COVID-19, updates from bootcamps regarding classroom closures (and reopenings), and our best tips for job searching online:
At Course Report, we have been keeping tabs on how coding bootcamps are responding to and meeting the needs of their current and upcoming cohorts.
