Coding bootcamps have become a popular and effective way to transition into a tech career, offering intensive, practical training over a relatively short period. However, one of the key considerations for prospective students is the cost. At Northcoders, we offer a range of pricing options and funding opportunities to make our bootcamps accessible to as many people as possible. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect.

Skills Bootcamps with the Department for Education

For those living in England, Northcoders offers Skills Bootcamps in partnership with the Department for Education. These bootcamps provide an excellent opportunity to receive high-quality coding education at no cost to the student. This initiative is designed to help address the skills gap in the tech industry and provide individuals with the training needed to secure a job in this fast-growing sector.

Self-Funded Spaces

If you’re not eligible for the Skills Bootcamps or prefer to self-fund your education, Northcoders offers two pricing tiers for our full-time bootcamps:

1. Northcoders Core: Priced from £6,450, this option provides 13 weeks of intensive learning, including 480 contact hours, one-on-one mentor support, pair programming, test-driven development, and the opportunity to work on real-world projects for your portfolio.

2. Northcoders Career Plus: From £7,950, this option has all the features of Northcoders Core, plus additional career support to help you secure your first job in tech. This can include extra workshops, personalised career coaching, and interview preparation. You can find out more about the career support available here

Part-Time Bootcamp

For those who need more flexibility, Northcoders also offers a part-time bootcamp priced at £7,950. This program is ideal for individuals who need to balance learning with other commitments such as work or family. The part-time bootcamp provides the same comprehensive curriculum and support as the full-time options, spread over a longer period to accommodate a more flexible schedule.
