Code First Girls & Bank of America

Code First Girls are dedicated to transforming tech by providing the skills, space, and inspiration for women to be the creators of our future technology and become future leaders. We are proud to have worked with Bank of America for several years. Bank of America was a key partner for our 2020 campaign (teaching 20,000 women to code by the end of 2020) and has continued to support us with our range of new courses and curriculum in 2021.

If you are a Bank of America employee or affiliate, we welcome you to join any of these upcoming training opportunities with Code First Girls!

01 MOOCs

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.

In partnership with Bank of America, we delivered two MOOCs at the end of January. If you weren’t able to join us live, you can re-watch them here:

02 Classes

Our Coding 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 Essential class!

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.
