    Thank you for your review, Allan! We are so happy to hear you are enjoying our live online coding program. You are absolutely right that as we cover a full-stack, topics are introduced at a higher level in-class and participants need to dedicate extra hours outside of class to not only gain a deeper understanding of the concepts but practice their skills. Like you mentioned, this helps individuals learn how to problem-solve and self-teach: two abilities needed in a developer role. We commend all the hard work you have dedicated thus far and are looking forward to seeing your final project in a few weeks!

    Hi Anonymous. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. As you noted, the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to offer the UofT SCS Coding Boot Camp. TES is a leading continuing education program manager that has partnered with more than 25 top universities across North America to support their skills-based program efforts. UofT SCS Coding Boot Camp and our partners at TES are absolutely committed to the experience of our participants.

    Our program prides itself on teaching individuals how to learn, providing a strong foundational skill set used to master additional programming languages following the course completion. We strive to communicate to participants that our full-stack program introduces course material at a macro-level, with additional time required outside of class to properly understand and master the topics; this helps individuals learn how to problem-solve and self-teach, key abilities needed in a developer’s career.

    We work hard to select instructional staff who are passionate about helping learners succeed. Our program has an intensive vetting process, requiring a minimum of three years experience in the tech industry. We measure instructor success based on participant feedback, video audits, and classroom assessments. We understand the boot camp's pace can be difficult and strenuous, as such, in order to assist individuals who are struggling with the coursework, our instructors and TAs are always available for extra support, staying after class to provide assistance in any way they can, in addition to our free tutoring network. We hope you found these resources to be beneficial, but we are constantly looking to improve our services and appreciate your feedback.

    As you noted, at the onset of our program, we determined learners who successfully completed the course would receive an Acknowledgment of Completion. After receiving input from several participants, we underwent a name change and ascertained we would instead be issuing a Certificate of Completion - also a formal signed and dated document which includes the learner's name, program, date, seal, and signature from the Dean of the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. We are actively looking to promote and commend our learner's accomplishments following the completion of such a rigorous course as this one and believe this Certificate of Completion, along with an official UofT SCS transcript, reinforces to employers that an individual has successfully finished the UofT SCS Coding Boot Camp. We do take participant feedback like yours most seriously and are continuously working to provide individuals with the service they need to be successful.

    We would welcome the opportunity to provide you with any additional support you may need at this time and would love to hear from you directly. If you would like, please reach out to us at (647) 245-1020.

    Hi Anonymous, thank you for your feedback. Our program is designed to help individuals with varying proficiency levels, as our mission is to assist as many hard-working, aspiring developers as possible. We never want to set up learners for failure, and that is why our admissions process begins with an initial phone interview, followed by a timed, academic test that learners must pass with a score of 70 or above in order to move forward in the admissions process, as well as a final critical thinking interview with a member of our academic team. Only once prospective learners have passed the phone interview, the test, and the academic interview are they accepted into the program. After gaining acceptance into the program, learners complete 30 hours of pre-work to further prepare before classes begin.

    We regret that your instructional experience has not lived up to your expectations so far. Our program has an intensive vetting process for instructors and requires a minimum of three years' experience as an active practitioner in the tech industry. Instructors may come from a variety of backgrounds within the web development field and will often have different teaching styles. As such, we measure our instructor success based on participant feedback, video audits of their teaching, and classroom assessments. Based on feedback and assessments, your cohort did experience an instructional change and we have been working hard to ensure that our learners have the best tools and instruction to be successful. Your new Lead Instructor was introduced on May 8. We believe this individual will be a great fit to guide your cohort going forward with his nine years of professional experience as a Developer and Software Engineer, as well as past experience working on Instructional Teams for the University of Toronto. 

    We understand that the first month of the program’s curriculum may not have been as intensive as you expected. Our program serves a mix of participants ranging from those with zero coding experience to computer science majors as well as graduates of other boot camps. For this reason, we begin by covering the basics, giving learners a solid foundation upon which they will build throughout the program. We start slow, but the intensity of our program ramps up to advanced, full-stack topics very quickly. Each lesson iteratively builds on the last, and there are no shortcuts to focusing on the basics at first. 

    We deeply care about the quality and integrity of your program, as well as each and every single one of our learners. Thank you for your patience and trust. We would like the opportunity to speak with you and determine what additional assistance we can provide you with at this time. Please reach out to me directly at (647) 245-1020 so we can further address your concerns and any questions you may have.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us, Anonymous.

TES is a leading continuing education program manager that has partnered with more than 25 top universities across North America to support their skills-based program efforts. This partnership allows individuals to learn about the latest technologies in an environment that fosters lifelong learning through our constantly advancing curriculum that is informed by employers in our network and is carefully reviewed by the university. We strive to be transparent about this partnership by noting it on our website and during the admissions process. UofT SCS Coding Boot Camp and our partners at TES are absolutely passionate about what we do and we thrive on seeing our learners succeed.

    We regret your classroom experience did not meet your expectations. Our program has an intensive vetting process for instructors and requires a minimum of three years' experience as an active practitioner in the tech industry. We hire professionals in lieu of traditional professors to best simulate real-life working environments. We measure our instructor success based on participant feedback, video audits of their teaching, and classroom assessments. We value our instructor's skills and efforts toward keeping our curriculum in-line with the latest market demands, however, we understand not all teaching styles will resonate with every program participant.

    Initially, upon completing the UofT SCS Coding Boot Camp, learners would receive an Acknowledgement of Completion; a formal signed and dated document including the individuals name, the name of the program, date, seal, and a signature from the Dean of the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies, recognizing the skills and knowledge the individual had acquired. Following participant feedback regarding the nomenclature of this document, we underwent a name change and determined learners would be issued a Certificate of Completion. As you noted, both the Certificate of Completion and Acknowledgement of Completion are subject to HST and UofT SCS is currently not able to issue T2202A’s. We are constantly striving to ensure our learners have the necessary tools and support they need to be successful, both during and following the course, so we truly appreciate your input.

    We would love the opportunity to speak with you directly to learn how else we can assist you at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us at (647) 245-1020.
