    Journey to success

    At 28 deciding to change careers can be a tricky business but I could not be happier with my decision. The course was quite challenging at times but I was a able to land my first developer role before I even graduated! The tutors are amazing and always there to help and the careers department is amazing and helped me a lot with great feedback about my cv and job applications.

    Northcoders review

    Teaching is amazing, I felt so prepared and ready for any  techincal test. However, the job assistance given after is honestly embarrassing. They seem to give no care once they've got your money and you feel isolated and left to your own devices. They HAD a decent amount of companies willing to hire from northcoders but as they expanded they didnt expand their job network and so many of us were left unemployed and ignored from their 'job advisors'. They provided next to no help with inte...

    Hi Alex, thank you so much for sharing your feedback.

    It’s hard to hear your feedback that you felt the support we gave you to help you find work simply didn’t live up to your expectations – we were really delighted when you were made your job offers, even though it was a shame the one you chose didn’t work out at the time. As we’re sure you understand, it isn’t fair to our graduates looking for their first role to continue to set up further interviews for people going into their second roles, so this is part of our policy.

    And you’re right, it has certainly been a challenging couple of months. There weren’t enough vacancies for every graduate to find work as fast as usual during COVID-19 and we acknowledge that our Careers Team were stretched. In response, we’ve repurposed our team members to focus on finding jobs, we’re creating a brand new library of resources to recent Northcoders Graduates do everything from build their personal brand to excelling at behavioural interviews, we’re putting in place systems to help you share their coding projects with businesses who may be hiring – to name a few. Simply put, nothing is a greater priority for us right now.

    We do feel that after we graduated that we did every thing we could to provide you with all of the career support you needed, from extra 1-2-1 sessions we arranged for you with our Careers Mentors, to helping you with those drafts of your CV, to the personal coaching and mentoring sessions we provided before your interviews. Along with the the support we provided in the dozens of job applications you made through Northcoders and those that you made directly on your own. However, it looks like we were off the pulse of how you were really feeling, and we know finding work can be overwhelming, so we are sorry.

    We are grateful for your feedback and sorry that our support fell short of your expectations. The good news is that we are starting to see improvements in the job market and we hope we can help you make the most of these new opportunities.

    An incredible course that will change your life!

    I was on the third cohort for northcoders and I graduated at the start of this year. The course itself is really fun and you will learn alot due to it being so intense and you meet some amazing people in the process! I was the youngest graduate at the time and I now work for a finance company in Manchester City Centre as a Junior Developer, they are really helpful not only on the course but after as well as they help you improve your CV, general skills and make you more employable to compa...

    Review of Northcoders

    I was on the very first cohort back in April 2016. The course is intense, but incredibly well designed and exciting and left me feeling like I'd learned more than I had in 3 years of uni. I am still good friends with many people from the first cohort - all those I have kept in touch with are in work as software developers and loving life. The specific technologies you learn are very relevant but part of the real value for me was that I felt like I 'learned how to learn'. You leave the cour...

    Too much pair work, not enough support

    You are told at the start there will be "a bit" of pair work, this couldn't be further from the truth. You will spend the majority of your time working with 1 other person on the course, this is made worse by the fact 9/10 of my partners were unhelpful and couldn't be bothered (usually because they were on an apprenticeship and had a job at the end regardless. When telling tutors, nothing was done.

    If I knew this before applying I would've gone elsewhere, save your money.

    Life changing at 40

    Life changing for me!

    So I was part of the first covid cohort and its fair to say I some areas northcoders drop the ball a little and they would probably admit this themselves.

    However everyone was scrambling for what to do in March 2020 and even with all the challenges faced by learners, companies and the world during this time the course with northcoders has been truly life changing.

    Super fast paced, very friendly professional and engaging tutors and even though I...

    Highly recommended!

    The course itself is really intense and challenging, but you learn so much in a short space of time! The tutors are fantastic, and the curriculum is constantly being reviewed and brought up to date. In the last few weeks you are put in touch with the careers team who give you some insight into what it is like to work in the industry and given advice on CV's, interviews and generally how to put your best foot forward. I had an interview lined up through Northcoders before I grad...

    Northcoders is genuinely special.

    I consider myself incredibly lucky to call myself a Northcoder. Even when I was 3 weeks into the course, I knew it was the best choice I'd ever made, and I felt they deserved every penny I was paying - even then. I've been fortunate to make friends for life and am part of a very, very special Northern community in its own right - the Northcoders Community. You couldn't hope to find better support or more knowledgeable tutors.

    Not all bootcamps are created equal

    I was a bit dubious at first - nobody seemed to have a bad word to say on the whole internet (except the bloke below - but you know, the clue is in the name..!) Because of that I went in to meet the team before I applied and it immediately changed my mind - you can just feel the buzz and scale of the place even when you walk inside the door. The team were beyond friendly and it is composed of good-hearted, ethical people who are trying to do good and help people. Fair play to them.
