Why choose Code Institute?
With an increasingly large global digital skills gap, it’s imperative that people learn the skills that are needed to drive pretty much every business forward. All businesses are now dependent on technology. We can see that through the sheer number of apps and websites that we use on a daily basis. People can now control everything from the heat in their houses to their shopping remotely by using modern technology. Automation is becoming more prevalent, and this is impacting on jobs. In some instances, we can now see certain roles being phased out. The question now is, what’s the best way to upskill people in modern technologies? And, why choose Code Institute?
Universities not moving fast enough
Universities are not upskilling students at a fast enough pace, and after a three to a four-year degree programme, technologies can change and even further upskilling is required. So the question is, what’s the best way to get these skills and close the skills gap at a faster pace? Our answer is that coding bootcamps are the future of digital learning.
Why choose Code Institute?
There are a lot of coding bootcamps out there, however, Code Institute is proving to deliver where other bootcamps simply don’t.
Industry Advisory Council
Code Institute’s programme is continuously developed with assistance from our Industry Advisory Council (IAC). This is a council of representatives from large global and local companies that tell us what’s need from software developers right now. The IAC is made up of companies like Accenture, Salesforce, CPL, BT, Paypal, RedHat and more. Their input is invaluable in ensuring that our students are ready for the industry by the time they finish our programme. They learn the skills that are needed right now.
As a result of our graduates being career-focused and industry-ready, 88% of our graduates are employed within six months of completing our full-stack software development programme. Unlike other bootcamps, we don’t guarantee jobs to our students. That creates an enormous amount of terms and conditions and while we assist as much as we can in developing good relationships with employers, we believe that our students are strong enough after graduation to attain a role in software development. In fact, many of our students find a job even before they complete our programme.
One of our most treasured assets is our support team. We employ tutors, mentors and student care advisors all around the world. This allows us to offer 24/5 support and extra weekend support too. We are extremely proud of our support offering and we are unrivalled in this field.
When we created our programme, it was our decision to ensure that it was the best it could be. We went as far as to look for external sources to scrutinise it. Therefore, we sought university approval on our course. With our credit-rating from Edinburgh Napier University, our programme is the only university credit-rated coding bootcamp in Europe.
Because of our university credit-rating, we are recognised on the European Qualification Framework at level 5. As a result, our course has been recognised by many governments and universities around the world. In Ireland, our programme has been recognised by the Higher Education Authority. Recognition by the Higher Education Authority in Sweden means that students can apply for finance through the CSN. In Singapore, thanks to their Department of Communications, students who partake in our programme through our partners can get part-funding for our programme. Our full-stack software development course has also been recognised by the Ministry of Education in Ontario, Canada, and the Maltese Ministry of Education. The other good news is that our programme has also been recognised for credit hours in certain universities in the USA.
So, why choose Code Institute? We’re proud of what we do and what we deliver. If you’re thinking of switching career or upskilling in software development, Code Institute has a proven record of delivering qualified full-stack software developers. Yes, there are some free options out there, but they don’t offer the support and the qualification that we have worked hard to achieve. We believe that education and upskilling is worth the investment.
