Our support teams are the backbone of Code Institute. We aim to bring complete beginners to world-class junior software developers through our accelerated programme. Apart from having the best Learning Management System, and a university credit-rated curriculum, we must have appropriate support pillars in place to bring our students on their journey.
The Support Teams
To do this, we have five major pillars of support. These are:
- Student Care
- Community Support
- Career Support
So what does each pillar of support do? Well, we’ve asked them. Below is how each team leader describes their team’s function for students on our programme.
Student Care is usually the first point of contact for a student when they start the Code Institute programme. They will help get you on the right track when it comes to scheduling and more. Here’s what Neil Kavanagh says about the Student Care Team.
Code Institute’s Tutor Support is second to none. They are available to help seven days a week. Your tutor will provide technical support for more immediate short-term questions you have, such as:
- Why is my code not working?
- How can I install MySQL?
- I’m getting this error when I push my code to GitHub, what
does it mean?
The tutor will offer support on any questions relating to lessons or challenges on our Learning Platform, as well as provide basic technical assistance with your projects. All more general project advice will be provided by your mentor.
As part of our Full Stack Software Development programme, students work on five portfolio projects. This is done with assistance from individual mentors. Claire Lally, our mentor lead, tells us how this works.
We see community as a vital part of the Code Institute experience. Everybody is going towards the same goal, and this fosters a magnificent community. Maria, our Community Manager, explains how this support pillar works.
Many of our students are switching to software development because they are in search of a new career. Our careers function is there to assists you on that journey. Meet Jane Gormley.
