    • Disadvantaged young people (19+), e.g. unemployed, underemployed
    • Those in low pay sectors or displaced / at risk of redundancy due to COVID-19 and in need of retraining
    • Those aged over 50
    • Those belonging to ethnic minority groups
    • Women or those belonging to gender minorities, including non-binary, transgender and intersex folks
    • Residents with a disability or health condition, particularly neurodiversity

    If your application is successful, you will join our May cohort with no fees or hidden costs to pay. 

    Please keep in mind that you will need to have your own laptop in order to complete the course.

FAQs

  • What time do your courses run each day?

    Our coding bootcamp runs from 8:30am to 17:00pm, Monday to Friday. We don’t cover any new content after 16:00, to help our students manage other commitments they might have.

  • How many contact hours will I get?

    You'll get a whopping 480 contact hours while you're at Northcoders. That's what you will need to fully prepare you for a career in tech.

  • Will I get a mentor?

    Yes, you will have a dedicated mentor for each part of the course.

  • What's the student to tutor ratio?

    As a minimum, for every seven students, there will be a tutor. So that's around 7:1.

  • How much experience do I need?

    None. You can apply to our bootcamps with no prior experience (although you might enjoy getting started prior to application!) If you've never coded before, we will help you get started and help you discover whether it is right for you before you commit to the course, and support you every step of the way.

  • Do I need any qualifications to do this course? 

    No. We're far more interested in what you want to achieve. This course is designed for people from any and all walks of life who are interested in starting a new career in tech, regardless of what you have done before.

  • How do I get a place on the course?

    First, you’ll need to apply. We’ll review your application usually within 48 hours, and decide whether to offer you an Entry Challenge. If you’re successful, we’ll send you our preparation materials. They’re designed to be fun, and are suitable for people who have never coded before. We’ll be there every step of the way to support you and help you decide whether you want to enrol on the coding bootcamp. Finally, to secure your place, you’ll complete our Entry Challenge. It’s relaxed, and you’ll be able to refer to your notes or look things up online. What we’re looking for is your drive to learn to code, and your aptitude for problem-solving.
