How did you find your time on the bootcamp?
The Northcoders environment is very friendly and inclusive. My time at Northcoders was fun, challenging and rewarding.
What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?
I had started off my career as a graduate developer over a decade ago but I gradually transitioned into the support side. 10 years later I decided to take some time off to unwind and reflect. It was during this time I decided to go back into software development and came across Northcoders.
What was the support like on the course?
The tutors want to make sure you understand the topics and they’re always open to answer questions during and after the classes. Additionally, all students get mentors who are there to give extra support if required.
How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?
Even before the course ended we were already being advised about writing our CVs and given interview tips which I found very useful. We also got 1-2-1 time with the career team to understand our interests and goals.
What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?
Try some of the online courses and attend the Northcoders Into to Programming. And if after that you still think you want to learn to code then Northcoders is the place to be.
