School Teacher to Associate Technology Specialist

Stephen BuckleyPreview: Stephen Buckley

How did you find your time on the bootcamp?

I found my time at Northcoders helped me structure my career change at a great pace that has allowed me the training to gain the industry skills needed for this career path. In a short amount of time I was able to go from barely knowing what a variable is, to being able to create both the frontend and backend of a modern application.

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

Previously I worked in education as a teacher and felt this career path was no longer for me.

What was the support like on the course?

The team at Northcoders were both professional and friendly that allowed for a dialogue to take challenges in learning.

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

The mock interview was useful for practicing interview questions after a period of time of not having been interviewed in sometime.

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?

Learn how to find information rather than trying to memorise everything.

Anything else you would like to add?

Thank you to the team at NC, appreciated your time and hard work.
