We offer a Scholarship Program to unemployed individuals who are between 20 and 30 years of age.
As a successful applicant you will start with our 9 week immersive Academy. During that time you will be taught the fundamentals of programming. The training itself is intensive and requires strong motivation and commitment. You should expect to be in class up to 10 hours a day, 5 days a week. The exception to this is during the first week, which starts on a Monday and runs until Saturday.
Whether it be reading assignments, exercises or review, homework is a regular staple during the academy and as such, you will be required to allocate additional time at home to finish this work when designated. To better prepare you for work in an international coding environment, all course materials and the instruction during classes are provided in English.
Our Academy prepares you for a job as full stack developer in modern web development. Our professionals teach you what they know and love in a unique 2 month education program. We developed this program in collaboration with professionals and employers to match what they ask for and more.
We start with the basics to first lay a solid foundation, and build upon that to make you a modern web developer, equipped with cutting-edge technology skills. Furthermore, your project workflow includes: Code reviews and quality assessments, standard practices such as TDD, basics of product development, UX design, Domain modelling and team collaboration using standard tools like Atom, Git, Github, CI, and Slack.
Our Academy is the best preparation to become a professional in modern web development. Our industry experts teach prepare you for a future in one of the coolest industries to work in.
We will invest in you, and work hard to get you there. And we expect the same from you. Codaisseur graduates are the most hireable web developers because we share the same interest. If you succeed, we succeed.
We work hard to make this course affordable to anyone. The admission fee of €800 is the best value for money you will find, because truly, that does not cover even half of what our Academy offers you.
We can make you this offer because we work closely with the companies that will hire you. The company that hires you will pay us back the remainder of your education cost - but only if you get hired in a real job. Not an internship, a real job with a real salary!
We are a school, not a pay rolling company. You will work for these companies directly, and you will choose where you want (and don’t want) to work. Make sure to check out our proposition to employers for the full picture.
Having completed the academy, you will be admitted into our 2-Year Junior Acceleration Program. The aim of this program is to provide you with further training, support, and mentorship so you can grow and expand your current skills in a more expedited manner. We achieve this through our advanced monthly classes, one-on-one mentoring hours, support via the Codaisseur community and ongoing access to all online course materials. Not only is this a benefit to our graduates, it has proven to be a valuable support outlet for the companies hiring our juniors.
It is in our best interest that all graduates find suitable employment as a junior developer after the academy; not only do we mean this but our very own model forces us to abide by it. Whilst we provide leads from our ever-growing network of companies, you are more than welcome to solicit directly with a company of their choosing. We involve companies as much as possible throughout the academy to not only introduce but to make the transition easier and more streamlined for our graduates.
Candidates are carefully selected amongst all applicants. Whilst prior education or experience in software development is an advantage, it is by no means a definitive requirement. After creating a profile with us you will be asked to complete an online assignment; the assignment itself is not hard but should be used as a tool to gauge your interest and devotion towards a career in programming. In addition to your interview, you will also be asked to complete two short tests pertaining to logic as well as the online assignment.
It will be the chance to ask all your questions.RSVP
If you are between 20 and 30 years of age, you may be eligible for a scholarship by the Comptoir de l’Innovation/Jp Morgan Scholarship. If you can not afford the admission fee, we advise you to contact your municipality (gemeente) to see if you are eligible for financial support.
