What Our Graduates Say

 

This 8-week specialism takes part in the second half of a 16-week bootcamp, during which time, learners are mentored by seasoned specialists with valuable experience and extensive expertise.

They’ve helped a stream of graduates successfully begin their Software Engineering journey.

And we're just getting started. 

"During the course we had daily support with the coaches. They would check our code and give us feedback. If we were stuck on something we could contact them via Slack and they would respond quickly, we then could have a video chat to discus the problem. We also had daily check-ins as a cohort so we could listen to what others had to say. Since completing the training we have monthly placement visits from someone from Makers where we talk about what I have done and what I want to achieve. I am still able to contact them on Slack if I need to ask anything."

"During the bootcamp I had loads of support every single day, the coach checked in with me multiple times a day and they were always available to be reached via Slack. After the bootcamp I had monthly meetings with my placement coach where we discuss how I'm doing and what I need to do next. This is really good because we can plan my next steps together and I can ask any questions I need to."

"Makers are quick to respond when ever I need help. The monthly 1 to 1 meetings are really great so I know what I need to do to pass the apprenticeship and helps you organise and prepare for it." 

"My apprenticeship has been an immense challenge that has taught me so much about not only tech, about Holiday Extras, but also about myself and what I am capable of. It has forced me out out of my comfort zone and really made me strive to become the best version of myself; my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner! I have met some amazing people and gained some great experience working in a few different areas of the company, and now feel like I could take on any challenge presented to me."
