How did you find your time on the bootcamp?

Honestly one of the best decisions I've made. The preparation and attention that the staff provide is unparalleled and things that may seem tricky at first are soon explained. The commitment to finding you a job at a company that you find interesting was also fantastic! From finishing I had a job after 7 days. Couldn't recommend the course enough.

June 2018

What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?

Worked in retail. I wanted a career change and a challenge, something that would test me.

What was the support like on the course?

All the team were helpful and knowledgeable about the courses content and I think it helped that most of them had taken the course previously as it gave them an idea of how to teach some of the more difficult aspects.

How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?

Brilliant. The communication with the job support team was great, and they smashed their promise of finding me a job within a month!

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?

Go for it. Having tried to teach myself how to code in my spare time, I don't think I would have been at the level I am without Northcoders!
