NEW COURSES COMING IN 2021
Code First Girls will be expanding on our current offering and delivering a range of new courses and course content for women who are interested in pursuing a career tech in 2021. Our aim is to double the size of the current community by offering a variety of Mass Open Online Courses, revamped Introduction Classes, and our first ever Nanodegrees.
We’ll be updating our community on new courses leading into 2021 across email and social, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled.
01 OPEN COURSES
CFG’s massive open online courses (MOOCs for short!) are designed in short segments to impart technical skills, confidence, or career discovery. Open to women of all ages who are interested in exploring a career in tech, our MOOCs courses will be available online with a number of live coached sessions across a range of topics and themes. Through our MOOCs, we want to make exploring a career in tech easy for all women and showcase various pathways that can be taken to build a successful career.
02 INTRO CLASSES
Our Introduction Classes will remain as part of CFG and will continue to provide a fundamental grounding in web dev, python, or data, but we are adding some sparkly new bits and pieces into the course curriculum. Each course provides live demonstrations and applications through in-class exercises. Learners build innovative tech projects to kick start their online portfolio. These classes will be delivered virtually or face-to-face with participants receiving a CFG certification upon successful completion.
03 Nano degree
A Nanodegree is one of the new product launches that we are most excited about! Listening to our community who were keen to see more in-depth course options as part of Code First Girls, our Nanodegrees will run over 12 weeks with an option to specialise in either data or software. They will be open by application and interview to high potential women who want a career in data or software. Candidates will need to have a python or SQL certification, have passed an entry assessment, and demonstrate a commitment to working with one of our partner companies.
