    An amazing learning experience

    I'd never written a line of code before I joined the bootcamp and can't believe how much I have learnt in the last 4 months. A fantastic experience with a well thought out curriculum including HTML, CSS, JavaScript and React JS.  I loved the support you received throughout the course, not only from the tutors and other bootcampers, but mentors, enablement coaches and guest speakers. An encouraging community, that continues beyond the 16-week course. Highly recommend...

    Life changing, engaging & unforgettable!

    An incredibly rewarding experience. Given the chance to work with new people from all walks of life everyday. Building things, solving problems and really understanding how tech works! The course is varied from UX/UI design to backend sever development with, soft skills, mindset modules and industry talks too! It was very well-rounded, engaging and easy to get out of bed for! I've met some amazing people and learnt some life-changing skills and this is just the beginning to a new found c...

    What an amazing experience

    I've been working as a croupier for 10 years.
    school of code helps me to swap from 'zero' experience in tech in general to have familiarity with APIs, Html, CSS, Javascript, Node.js, Databases, Testing, Agile Methodology, Figma, Atlassian(Jira), Miro Board, low/high fidelity Wireframe software and so many other things. 
    Even now I'm surprised that I understand all of these things and I'm able to produce something with them.
    All those things from November to March(if you take of ...

    Life-changing

    I would highly recommend the School of Code to anyone even remotely interested in coding/programming. Even though the course is intense, they provide a well structured learning environment to learn and develop as a software engineer.

    This bootcamp is fantastic!

    Without this bootcamp I should be now still working hard by my own self in the tutorial hell of YouTube's coding channel. It brings me opportunities to work with different kinds of people in U.K. and has hands-on pair programming experience, not to mention the clear explanation of web development technologies concept by every coach. This bootcamp is not just a regular coding course, once you are a bootcamper you are always a part of The School Of Code family, which means you are still in...

    Life-changing

    I couldn't recommend this enough. I went from being able to write a few lines of HTML, CSS and Javascript, to being able to write full stack applications using modern frameworks like React. My skills and confidence have increased immensely and I feel ready to tackle the upcoming interviews and start my new career. 
    It's not just about the code, it's about the whole experience of working with other bootcampers in teams of different sizes, first starting on small challenges and workshop...

    More than just a coding bootcamp

    I have nothing but good things to say about the School of Code, over the last 16 weeks I have learnt more than I could have imagined and I feel that I now have an amazing platform on which to continue building my tech skills. Going into this I knew almost nothing about coding and I now feel confident building full stack JavaScript applications and would feel comfortable learning the new syntax of a new language. I'm looking forward to an exciting career in tech.

    Amazing free bootcamp!!

    on as I could. The bootcamp met and exceeded my expectations.

    The School of Code teaches the most up to date tech to prepare you for a full stack developer role. This is exactly what I wanted! We learnt basic html, css and javascript and then moved on to React. We also learnt nodejs and used express servers for the back end. We also covered testing, problem solving, AWS, design, github...the list goes on and on! Not only do you learn so much, you get to build...we made...

    The School of Code changed my life!

    The sixteen weeks I spent at the School of Code have been mind-blowing. It’s the most incredible opportunity, and to have it be free was the cherry on top. I’m so privileged to have had this experience. I’ve gone from being able to maybe make a basic HTML page pre-Bootcamp to designing full-stack applications in four months! Chris and the SoC staff have put their heart and soul into making this amazing, and I’ll always be grateful. It was also brilliant to hear from the guest speakers as...

    The School of Code offers everything you could want from a bootcamp, and all completely free! It's been a fantastic experience and I can't believe how much I've learned over the 16 weeks. We also had guest lectures from people in industry, so going with the SoC is a great way to get connected as well as educated. 
    The bootcamp started out based in Birmingham's Custard Factory, but due to COVID 19 we had to switch to remote learning. The team handled this exceptionally well, and the tr...

    Launched my career

    School of Code was a life changing experience for me - I acquired skills that I never would have been able to get without assistance.

    After completing the School of Code bootcamp, I was invited to an interview day for SoC alumni. Shortly after, I was offered an internship with a local tech company. Now, a couple of years later, I have received a promotion and I am a contributing member of my team.
