We have been working on solutions to technical vocational training since 2012 and no one has a better understanding than us of key motivators for employers, when looking to hire or promote junior / apprentice developers. Everyone In software development is self taught to a certain extent and most people hiring (or influencing the hire) are unlikely to have come through formal education in computer science.

In this career we never stop learning - an appetite for learning and self teaching and a clear interest in the job are the most important things we can show. This course is designed to help you showcase these traits with real code examples and an understanding of the tools of the trade and working best practice.

Pre Requisites

This course is not for absolute beginners - you will need a basic understanding of HTML and CSS.

You do not need any formal qualifications, we are looking for aptitude and enthusiasm - if you have been teaching yourself to code and want to succeed in this business, that will be enough for us.

What learners say about this course

Success Stories

The course was incredibly well put together and support on hand from tutors was practically available round the clock. The standout thing for me wasn’t just learning the course material itself, but the way I’ve finished the course and have a set way of thinking like a programmer thanks to Steve and the rest of the tutors. I have already recommended this course and most certainly will do again. The post course support from Frankie is fantastic, too.

The Coders Guild showed me that a career change into tech was absolutely possible. The tutors were incredible, and were always more than happy to help whenever I got stuck. They help you prepare for your first role in Tech and I couldn’t be more thankful for that!
