To help meet growing employer demand in Perth, the University of Western Australia today announced the launch of its first coding boot camp in partnership with Trilogy. Geared toward adult learners and working professionals in Perth, The University of Western Australia Coding Boot Camp teaches the front-end and back-end skills necessary to become a proficient full-stack developer.
The 24-week, part-time program begins September 10, 2019, with two three-hour evening classes during the week (6:30 to 9:30 p.m.) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). Enrolment is now open at bootcamp.uwa.edu.au.
“We need to find new ways to educate our workforce in Perth so that more people can participate in the booming demand for technology skills locally, across the country, and globally,” said Professor David Sadler, UWA’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education). “Our coding boot camp is an intensive, part-time program designed for working adults who want to transition into careers in tech. Through our partnership with Trilogy Education, our students will have access to a world-class curriculum, targeted career coaching, and instructors who work in the industry.”
Residents of Perth, Australia are looking for ways to retrain for new jobs and upskill in their current roles as growth declines in the region’s once dominant mining industry. Companies in the city, Australia’s fourth largest, and across the country are hungry for job-ready tech talent.
“The University of Western Australia joins a network of universities that recognize the importance of preparing their communities for changes driven by an increasingly tech-focused economy,” said Dan Sommer, Trilogy Education’s CEO and Founder. “The tech skills gap is a global problem, and the fastest growing gaps are in cities that aren’t traditionally thought of as tech hubs. Tailored to the needs of Perth’s employers, this boot camp is for anyone with the determination to make a transformation in their lives.”
In addition to classroom instruction, students will spend a minimum of 20 hours a week on outside projects, homework, and experiential learning activities. They’ll also build a professional project portfolio to showcase their abilities and hone their competitive edge in the employment market. Students will also receive a range of career-planning services, portfolio reviews, recruiting assistance, and extensive staff support.
Boot camp students will gain skills to develop dynamic end-to-end web applications, as well as receive a Certificate in Full-Stack Web Development from the University of Western Australia.
