Le Wagon is a career accelerator, and the job prospects are bright. 

With graduates earning £41,500 average annual salary after 1-2 years experience, almost every one (97%) was happier in their new job post bootcamp, 95% saying that they couldn't have achieved this otherwise. What's better? The flexibility, travel, mindset, people and culture that the tech industry and startup world bring.

In London there are new tech companies being built all the time, creating huge demand for the digitally literate, like developers and technical co-founders, paving the way for the future of work and new working culture.

When the bootcamp ends we keep in touch, giving workshops and resources about the job industry, as well as hosting careers fairs that connect alumni with our hiring partners. It only takes 2-3 months for alumni to find a job once graduating. 49% said they got a job with just one interview! 

Alumni, batch #43: "Some big companies are starting to have graduate programs dedicated to bootcamp alumni, which means your profile's value is definitely recognised."
Hiring & Careers Day

Le Wagon is inclusive, with the right mindset anyone can do it.

We cater to all ages, backgrounds and experience levels - everyone starts somewhere and is capable of achieving an epic career change, increasing their professional value or launching their startup, so don't be shy.

We're keen to do our bit to help improve gender diversity in coding and tech. From featuring female speakers and role models to working with communities that support women to enter & remain in the industry, we've increased our male to female ratio to 57:43, so everyone feels welcome and empowered to lead in their career. 

Alumni, batch #36: "Everyone has imposter syndrome...don't be afraid, take on new challenges and you'll notice how much you can bring to the table."
Pitch Night

The learning doesn't stop post-bootcamp, your value only grows.

Our alumni are continuously expanding their minds to stay up to date with recent advances in programming and development topics. We teach Ruby on the bootcamp (Ruby, Ruby on Rails, SQL for databases, HTML & CSS, JavaScript, UX/UI design and more), but this is just the start.

We found that graduates are hungry for knowledge, learning things like React, Java, Python when they leave, some even branching out to C++, Haskell & Go. The Le Wagon alumni slack is where we share resources, knowledge, jobs, social events and lots more - you'll be part of the community for life. 

Alumni, batch #173: "Have faith that you're 5 years ahead of everyone once you decide to learn how to code."
