Your Journey To Becoming A Web Developer Starts Here
If you've been self-studying web development, you'll have begun to realise how much there is to cover, and how much there is still to learn. Whatever path you choose, having the right foundations in web development is essential if you are to grasp the principles behind popular frameworks such as Ruby on Rails, MEAN, Node.js or mobile development. This course is designed to orientate you in six weeks, covering programming, networking and databases to understand the fundamentals of the web. With the support of our instructors and our unique live-in learning community, we can help you get the grounding you need before you take a specialist course.
What it is
It’s a full-time residential training course drawn from the first six weeks of our popular Web Developer Fast Track programme, aimed at beginners who want to learn the foundations of web development to support further study. It’s ideal for those who want to stagger their studies, or to learn the basics before deciding on a specialism such as Ruby on Rails or MEAN stack.
You'll learn to code alongside leading industry professionals, who are available when you need them the most. Then, apply your skills in real-world web development teams, with a paid work experience placement, working under the supervision of your mentor.
Where it is
Our luxury riverside mansion HQ is less than an hour north of London in the Hertfordshire countryside. You’ll have a private ensuite room, lots of space to relax in, and we’ll take care of all the domestic stuff so you can keep your mind focused. Working alongside your classmates and instructor, you'll get the facetime you need to get the help you need, when you need it.
How It Works
We'll set you some work when you sign-up to help you on your way. If you've not coded before, it'll help you find out what you need to study and when you'll be ready to move onto the next stage.
Web Development Course
For six glorious weeks, stay in our state-of-the-art, luxuriously renovated mansion, with private en-suite rooms allocated to each trainee. Our approach combines the intensity of a coding bootcamp with the comforts of a countryside retreat.
Post-course: Choose a specialism
With a variety of courses to choose from, you can build on the foundations that you'll learn about on this course and specialise in the tech stack or platform of your choice, whether that's web or mobile. Once you've qualified, you'll be able to join our network of experts and take on client-facing projects with us.
