Well here is your chance! Our traineeship is aimed at those who truly want it; we train you, mentor you, promote you and with it, make you employable. Sounds great right? Well there’s a lot more to it so read on.
On this page you will find information about the Codaisseur Academy and what you will learn, the 2 year Junior Acceleration Program including job placement and selection, and finally scholarships & support
As a successful applicant you will start with our eight week immersive bootcamp; 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 week 1 which starts on a Sunday and runs until the following Saturday and week 6 which runs from Monday and ends on the following 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.
Upon completion of the academy, you will be proficient in complete stacks composed of Ruby, RSpec, Rails, JS/Node (incl. ES6), Mocha, Chai, React, Redux, SQL, HTML5, and CSS3. 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.
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
