Dear Alumni,

We're sorry that you found the employment process disappointing and appreciate you taking the time to express your concerns - we have taken them very seriously. To be honest, we too felt that it needed refinement and have therefore made substantial improvements to this aspect of the course. 

Firstly we have made it easier for employers to become partners, increasing the pool of tech companies looking to employ our graduates to 83, providing a rich pool of a wide variety of jobs. 

Secondly, we have created a series of engagement activities for employers and students from company presentations to Meet-the-Employer events and Speed-networking evenings. Our employer engagement team works individually with each student to match them to the right job, opening up as many opportunities as possible with multiple interviews and site visits.

Lastly, we have further developed our curriculum to match what employers want and extended our career preparation sessions to include technical interview and test techniques working with expert tech recruiters. This has made the transition to employment highly successful for the majority of our students - in fact 85% are employed in the tech sector within 6 months of completing the course

I sincerely hope you have found the skills you learned on the course useful and productive and have been able to apply them to a new role.
