How did you find your time on the bootcamp?
Northcoders was a truly amazing learning experience and such a refreshing change from the university structure. Each day was filled with new material and challenges that pushed me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to learn so much in such a short space of time. It was a very relaxed and fun environment to be in and you get to meet some great and like minded people. They take care of you as well with snacks, drinks, beers and socials that just adds to the overall experience.

What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?
At university I studied engineering and management and after graduating I explored careers in manufacturing, operations management and sports development. I just couldn't find the job fulfillment I desired and wanted a career that allowed me to blend creativity with problem solving. Coding was the perfect match.
What was the support like on the course?
The tutors were extremely knowledgeable and really took an interest in your development by challenging you every day. The careers counselling we received was invaluable and really helped me to understand my strengths which is something I'd really struggled with in the past.
How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?
Post course life was daunting but the support Northcoders provided was very reassuring. They match you with your ideal job and guide you through the job application on a personal level, ensuring that you are fully prepared for any interviews and tests. Feedback is given promptly and any questions you might have are answered almost immediately.
