MOOCs Header Image

leap into coding with Code First Girls

The CFG Massive Open Online Courses are one-off taster sessions for complete beginners who are looking for somewhere to get started. CFG MOOCs are designed in short segments to impart technical skills, confidence or career discovery. These free sessions will introduce you to in-demand tech concepts and languages, and other key skills. These sessions are open to everyone and streamed to YouTube so that you can rewatch them in your own time.

NatWest will be supporting several MOOCs throughout the coming year, so check this page regularly for updates and follow CFG on social media to stay up-to-date.

Kickstart your coding adventure

Our Kickstarter classes are for those who are ready to take the next step in their coding journey and commit to an 8 week, part-time, evening course. The classes are for complete beginners, but you might have attended a CFG MOOC first!

All Coding Kickstarter sessions are two hours long, one evening a week for 8 weeks. These classes have been designed to fit around your work and combine lecture-style content, project work and live coding to learn the skills you need to break into tech. If you are looking to stay in your current company but would like to up-skill and transition into a more technical role, this is the course for you!

Upon successful completion of the course, learners will receive a Code First Girls certificate.
