Am I suitable?
Are you interested in IT and computers, or working with people around computers? Do you think logically. There are many roles in the industry including software development, support, testing, business analysis that you are suitable for. It is not just about programming, although our initial program will be focused on programming. We will interview you to assess your suitability in any case before you are accepted into the program.
What are the prerequisites?
To attend the program, you will have to be motivated and be prepared to work hard and study hard. If you just want an easy way to a good salary, then this is not for you. We don't look for exam grades as we have seen some fantastic students with poor exams actually do really well, so that is not what we look for. What we do look for is someone who is intelligent, and personable. Working in technology these days is a team business most of the time, and we will be looking for people who can work in a team.
Will I get a job at the end of it?
We work with Bristol and nationally based employers to help get you placed. Obviously, it is in our interests as well as yours to ensure you get a great job out of this. We are anticipating that some employers might even offer to pay some of your fees if you successfully complete a probation period with them. Having said all that, you will need to make an effort to get a job. We can help, but ultimately the employer will be employing you not us!
Do I need a computer?
We can provide you with a fully configured powerful computer in the cloud (for an additional cost). All you need is a basic laptop or computer in order to connect to it. Alternatively, just make sure you have a working Windows or Mac or even Linux based machine with a minimum of 8gb RAM and you should be fine.
Where will the training be held?
The Bootcamp revision weeks will be held in Bristol. So it will be accessible from public transport. Alternatively you can attend these sessions remotely as long as your Internet is good enough.
How much will it cost?
The total cost for this training program is £2900. There are government career loans that we can help you to apply for if it would be beneficial for you. We appreciate that it is a large sum of money, but it has to be viewed in the context as an investment in your career. Contact us if you would like to pay in installments. Due to the modular nature of this bootcamp, you can pay in three installments of £1100, essentially for one block of training at a time.
