The University of Manchester today announced the launch of its first Coding Boot Camp in partnership with leading US workforce accelerator, Trilogy Education.
The University of Manchester is the exclusive provider of the programme based in the North West and is one of the first universities in the UK to offer the Coding Boot Camp.
Geared towards adult learners in the North West of England, The University of Manchester Coding Boot Camp is a non-degree programme that teaches the front-end and back-end skills necessary for a career in coding and web development.
The 24-week, part-time programme begins on 22 October 2019, with two three-hour evening classes during the week (6:30 to 9:30pm) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10am to 2pm). The curriculum is strategically designed to teach people across varying proficiency levels, from absolute beginners to those with existing coding experience.
Professor Robert Stevens, Head of the School of Computer Science at The University said: “We are delighted to be offering a pioneering new style of learning here at our University, which has an unrivalled heritage in the field of Computer Science. The accessible nature of the programme brings opportunities for technical development to a new audience of adult learners across the North West region; whether they’re parents with flexible study needs, or people looking for a career change into an exciting industry.
“Our new Coding Boot Camp delivered in partnership with Trilogy Education is taught by industry professionals, with a course curriculum guided by our own academics in computer science; providing participants with high quality academic support and career coaching to help them make the transition into a technology career.”
