The University of Manchester today announced the launch of its first coding boot camp in partnership with Trilogy Education geared towards adult learners in the North West of England.
The University of Manchester Coding Boot Camp is a non-degree program that teaches the front-end and back-end skills necessary for a career in coding and web development. The curriculum is strategically designed to teach people across varying proficiency levels, from absolute beginners to those with existing coding experience. Enrollment is now open at bootcamp.manchester.ac.uk.
“We are delighted to be offering a pioneering new style of learning here at our university, which has an unrivaled heritage in the field of computer science,” said Professor Robert Stevens, head of the School of Computer Science at the university. “The accessible nature of the program brings opportunities for technical development to a new audience of adult learners across the North West region—whether they’re parents with flexible study needs or people looking for a career change into an exciting industry.”
Manchester is widely recognized as the UK’s largest technology hub outside of London. Successful participants of The University of Manchester Coding Boot Camp will help expand the pipeline of talent.
“Technology is transforming Manchester’s economy, but its continued growth hinges upon an increasing supply of digitally-skilled workers,” said Dan Sommer, CEO and founder of Trilogy Education. “The University of Manchester joins a growing network of top universities that are working to create stronger, more resilient cities through skills-based training programs. Together, The University of Manchester and Trilogy Education will enable residents from across the North West of England to acquire valuable digital skills and to pursue meaningful careers in the region’s innovative tech economy.”
Boot camp participants gain skills to develop dynamic end-to-end web applications, as well as receive a certificate of completion in full-stack web development from The University of Manchester.
