When looking for a Coding Bootcamp, our first advice is to ask the right questions so that you can make an educated decision. Ask yourself:
- Why am I doing a Coding Bootcamp in the first place? What are my objectives? What are my expectations?
- Which Bootcamp will most likely help me fulfil my objectives?
- What else could be useful to know about the Bootcamp (dropout rates, career support, placement rates, educational experience, content, learning interface, structure, community, learning objectives, projects, team-work, teaching style, etc.)?
So first have a think about the above questions and then start reading this post to see if Le Wagon appeals to you. Here are seven good reasons for choosing Le Wagon:
1. The most acclaimed Coding Bootcamp in the world.
It might even seem suspicious to have that many great reviews, but you will soon realize that it has some solid reasons 😉 We'd recommend reading the reviews, and you will see that they are not two-line reviews - students have taken the time to share their experience, in details, out of passion.
Many of Le Wagon's staff members went on the same journey as you. At some point in their lives, they decided to upskill or transition into Software Engineering. Having really enjoyed their experience, they decided they wanted to work with Le Wagon! That's why we have so many Bootcamps around the World: All the campuses are actually run by past students 🔥
2. You'll become job-ready in addition to a great coder.
According to the industry, Bootcamp and University graduates' most significant problem is that students are not job-ready because they lack confidence, communication skills and they don't have experience working in teams. The general complaint is that graduates struggle to integrate, collaborate and work within a team. It is not a surprise as, throughout our educations, most of us have been trained to think solo while the professional world is quite the opposite.
But Le Wagon's graduates stand out from the lot. Why? Because our goal is to train future tech leaders 🤘We naturally integrate these core skills (team-work, pair-programming, and active communication) into our course structure to train our students to become confident developers that can work both in teams and independently. We have structured our course to mimic a professional environment and not a typical educational environment. And we guarantee you that everything becomes a lot more fun this way!
3. The best Tech Education course
The entire team is passionate about education, and our main focus is you. As tech is evolving quickly, we are continuously working on our content and learning interface to keep it up to date.
We are specialized and we provide only two courses: Software Engineering and Data Science courses. We are focused, which means that we can improve much quicker and much more consistently so that the learning experience keeps on improving. Imagine an athlete trying to become a World Champion in 8 different sports... It just doesn't happen.
To deliver the highest level of education, we also limit our batches' sizes: We assure that everyone joining is motivated, curious, and ready for a collaborative and inclusive educational experience. Both our quality and education philosophy has become a rarity in what is now typically an investor-driven and manufacture style - students in and students out - educational market - but we wouldn't do it any other way ☺️
Transparency is key! So if you are curious about your level of skills after the course, you can check out the apps created at Le Wagon in Australia. You can also watch all our Demo Days on Youtube!
4. An exceptional Learning Interface, accessible forever.
A lot of our administrative tasks are automated. It assures that we're not wasting time on unimportant tasks and guaranteeing that our teachers can focus on training you as effectively as possible. Our structure and interface is why we are able to teach you better and faster than many longer courses out there 😎
5. Continuous Career support and access to the community, no matter where you are in your career.
At Le Wagon Melbourne, we work with a professional career coach to assure that we give you personalized, up to date industry advice. Your Bootcamp should not be a tech parenthesis in your life: It should be the launchpad to wherever you want to be!
6. A 94% Job Success Rate in 2020.
If you are passionate about coding, enjoy working in a team, and genuinely want to become a Software Developer, we can guarantee that you will find a job and that companies will want to have you in their team!
