TechSwitch is a 12-week Software Developer training bootcamp followed by an 18-month paid placement offered in London (although currently the training is delivered online due to concerns of Covid safety). The bootcamp and placement are both full time (Monday-Friday) and are not designed to fit alongside work or school schedules. Cohorts are kept between 5-10 students to ensure plenty of time for one-on-one training time. TechSwitch students will learn full stack web development including JavaScript, React, HTML, CSS, C#, SQL, and Docker. All bootcamp students will also be assigned a personal mentor to help with welfare and support learning.

No technical or coding background is required to apply for TechSwitch. The course is aimed towards those looking to re-enter the workforce after a break (e.g. because they have been raising a family) or those currently working in another sector and looking for a career change. 

At the end of the bootcamp, TechSwitch students will get assistance with securing an 18-month paid placement with a £30,000 annual salary, pension scheme and 20 days of holiday. During the placement, TechSwitch students will work as part of a development team, writing code and building software engineering skills and experiences. Students may have the opportunity to continue their career at the company where they were placed. Alternatively, students may secure a job elsewhere in the tech sector.

      TechSwitch is a great opportunity for anyone looking to break into the development industry. The syllabus took me through frontend and backend development, and after completing the course I had a more in depth understanding of both. 

      The support with interviewing for getting a placement was great, it allowed me to feel comfortable and practise how to handle the process.

      I applied for the place in a 12-week course in the middle of March. The course started at the end of April. In general, the applying process was straightforward with excellent communication and support from the manager: all my questions were answered honestly and quickly. I was given a prereading tasks in C# and JavaScript to start coding before the beginning of the course. 

      The course is well planned, well delivered and full of interesting tasks and challenges. I can't praise enough our instructor as he is very intelligent, patient and approachable. My day at TechSwitch day started with a lecture, explanation of the tasks, and then most of the time we worked in pairs learning from each other. If we were stuck help was always available. As a team we completed two exciting projects and presented them in front of the audience. It was a great experience of software development process. I also had a lot of support with writing cv and biography as well as answering interview questions. We even had two mock interviews and feedback for each. In terms of coding, I learned GitHub, JavaScript (React, Typescript, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap) and then  C#/.NET as the backend technology.
