Our curriculum has been expertly crafted to give you the skills you need to be job ready in 16 weeks.

Get to grips with the essential tools, methodologies and best practices of a developer. We’ll teach you how to set up your development environment, write code that is clean and understandable, use object-oriented programming, user experience design, test driven development and Agile practices to develop well-functioning products. 

Learn by doing. Through a mixture of code-along lessons, labs and project work you’ll get experience using the most in-demand technologies used by employers across Scotland. 

Learn to build a dynamic front-end to your web application with common frameworks and tooling used by developers across the industry. Learn how to research user needs, plan architecture, and build functionality using React and JavaScript.

Build a web application from the ground up. Get hands-on with server side applications with API development and databases

At the heart of every successful development team is effective communication and collaboration. Whether remote or in person, you’ll learn the art of pair programming, stand-ups, how to run sprints and present your end product to an audience. 

Changing career can be daunting and we know that thriving in a new industry is about more than just subject knowledge. That’s why we offer a series of workshops and sessions to help get you career ready for the tech industry.
