Despite the Covid-19 situation, Le Wagon is unwavering in its commitment to strengthen our efforts and help those affected. We are continuing to help people transition into the tech industry, and in turn, fulfill the increasing demand of ICT professionals and nurture the local tech talent pool in all capacities. To achieve this, Le Wagon is engaging individuals, companies, universities, the government, and venture capital (VC) funds by seeking collaboration opportunities. We have been highly successful with remote teaching not only because of our robust curriculum but also because of our multipronged approach to maintaining the classroom atmosphere and building community even in Covid-19 times, thereby keeping students engaged with us and each other. Our amazingly dedicated teachers are available at all times across all channels and we utilize cutting edge-tools for lectures and facilitation along with 1:1 Zoom-based consultations. Our current Bootcamp batch, which started on May 18, includes 7 students who are under the TIPP programme. All students have the option of either coming to the physical classroom or continuing with remote learning once Circuit Breaker restrictions are lifted. 
 
“This new partnership, under TeSA, has come at a time when it will benefit Singaporeans more than ever, as we head into a digital economy that requires us to become more adaptable with our skills,” said Dirk Schuler, Le Wagon Singapore Founder.

 “We are pleased that Le Wagon has come on board as a new partner for this Tech Immersion and Placement Programme (TIPP) under TeSA. Through TeSA, we hope that more Singaporeans can gain new skills which will prepare them for the digital economy, as we emerge stronger from the circuit breaker,” said Adrian Ong, Director, TeSA Programme Office, Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA)
 
In just 9 weeks, students will graduate from the program with skills to start a job as a web developer, product manager, UX designer and other tech-related roles. Out of the 3 batches we have run so far, over 80% of our students who were looking to change their career are either working to start their own company or have found new roles in tech within 2 months after the Bootcamp. Participants will have a solid understanding of the foundations of web development, both front-end and back-end experience as well as a completed web app that they have built from scratch. The Bootcamp concludes with a Demo Day, where recruiters and the public are invited and where students showcase their final projects. Le Wagon also provides career development and support throughout and after the program. This includes regularly scheduled talks by industry experts, personalized consultations and utilizing our network of hiring partners. For future founders, we are also a resource for product development help and startup guidance. Here is a short video that summarizes the Le Wagon experience.
