Description

Come and meet the first cohort of the School of Code Bootcamp!

Join us in your lunch hour at iCentrum on Tuesday 26th September. This event will be a chance to find out more about the Bootcamp and why it's happening, as well as network with the recruits on the course.

For those that don't already know, we are running a free, immersive, 16-week Bootcamp! The course is taking people from complete beginners to fully-fledged programmers, as well as helping them find exciting career opportunities afterwards.

Our aim is to get more and different types of people into technology, and show that cool things are happening in Birmingham! In doing this, School of Code hopes to open coding up to more people, showing that everyone can benefit from the growing tech industry. Responding to the current reality that there are 125,000 unfilled tech jobs in the UK every year, the Bootcamp aims to equip its recruits with the skills that industry needs!

After receiving 300 applications from a huge variety of backgrounds, with a near 50:50 gender split and ages ranging from 18-60, we have chosen our final Bootcamp recruits - you can meet them all on the 26th!

Come to iCentrum on Innovation Birmingham Campus 12pm - 1pm for lunch and networking, as well as the opportunity to hear from School of Code, the Bootcamp sponsors and the recruits themselves!

We want to train, nurture, and keep tech talent in Birmingham.

  • Passionate about the tech population in Birmingham
  • Wanting to find out how you can support the Bootcamp
  • Looking to hire software developers
