LEARN NEW TECH
The CFG Massive Open Online Courses are our 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.
FREE TO ATTEND
These free, 60-90 minute-long sessions will introduce you to in-demand tech concepts and languages, and other key skills.
They are a great way to get a taste for different tech concepts, languages, and career tips’n’tricks.
We often have our partner companies helping us host these sessions, so there is also a great opportunity to find out how tech works across different organisations.
OVER 30 AREAS TO LEARN & EXPLORE
BEST FOR BEGINNERS
A GREAT PLACE TO START FOR THOSE NEW TO TECH
Most of our MOOCs are great for any beginner, but to start your journey, these beginner concepts will give you a good intro into key tech areas and languages, and how they are applied across companies.
Many of these concepts can be built on with our more advanced MOOC topics OR through our introduction classes (and even further with our nanodegree!).
Many of our MOOCs are sponsored by our partners, who will not only will take you through the concept, but also showcase how it is applied in their business with room for Q&As at the end.
LEVEL UP WITH ADVANCED TOPICS
widen your knowledge and skills set
If you understand some of the key concepts and languages, a great way to widen your knowledge and skills set is with some of our more advanced MOOCs.
These topics delve into more detailed, specific areas or go through more advanced tools and skills.
These topics are also regularly sponsored by our partners, giving a great insight into how that particular tech works in their business.
PORTFOLIO & SKILL BUILDERS
SET YOURSELF UP FOR A CAREER IN TECH
Tech can be daunting when you start out, so we want to give you the best tools, skills, and tips’n’tricks to get started and have you well-prepared for your first (or maybe second, or third) role in tech!
We’ll go through applications and interview skills, assessment centres, and how best to build your profile.
As an added bonus, we’ll have partner companies help showcase these areas and give some sweet insider know-how and tips.

As demand for data engineers, data analysts, and data scientists increases, so does the demand for coders who are proficient in SQL. This intro to SQL with the team at Goldman Sachs is an essential intro to data, and a great way to ask some questions of real data engineers.
