Trilogy Education Expands to Australia, Announces Coding Boot Camp in Partnership with Monash University
MELBOURNE, Australia (9:00 am AEDT – 31 January 2019) – Monash University today announced the launch of a coding boot camp, the first in Australia to be launched in partnership with leading global workforce accelerator Trilogy Education. Geared toward adult learners and working professionals, the Monash University Coding Boot Camp will teach the front-end and back-end coding skills in-demand by Melbourne’s growing number of tech employers.
The 24-week, part-time program begins May 14th at the Monash Caulfield campus, 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.). Boot Camp graduates will receive a Certificate in Full-Stack Web Development from Monash University. Enrolment is now open at bootcamps.monash.edu.
“In recent years, dozens of global tech companies have opened offices in Melbourne, including Google, Salesforce, Square, Slack and Amazon. We believe Monash University has an important role to play in developing the skills in our community to meet the demand for more tech talent. By offering the Monash University Coding Boot Camp in partnership with Trilogy Education, we can give local professionals best-in-class technical instruction and career coaching to ensure they are positioned to be part of Melbourne’s growing digital economy,” said Professor Susan Elliott, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President at Monash University.
With Melbourne’s tech labour market growing more competitive, employers are hungry for job-ready talent. In the next five years, Australia is expected to need over 200,000 more technology workers, with Melbourne boasting the most competitive salary increases in Australia’s IT sector.
“Melbourne’s local workforce has an opportunity to benefit from a growing tech sector, but there’s a clear demand for more skilled workers than currently exist in the market,” said Dan Sommer, CEO and Founder of Trilogy Education. “Monash University joins a network of top universities globally that recognise the power of partnership to establish high quality, career-oriented learning programs that can quickly adapt to the needs of the community. Together, Monash University and Trilogy Education will deliver a boot camp that enables the residents of Melbourne to pursue rewarding careers and fuel the city’s tech scene.”
In addition to classroom instruction, students will spend at least 20 hours a week on outside projects, homework, and experiential learning activities. They will also build a professional project portfolio to showcase their abilities and hone their competitive edge in the employment market. Students will receive a range of career-planning services, portfolio reviews, recruiting assistance and extensive staff support.
Founded in 2015, Trilogy powers hundreds of intensive learning programs in high-demand tech fields in partnership with over 40 leading universities globally. Most recently, Trilogy launched a coding boot camp with the Harvard Extension School and announced $50M in Series B funding, bringing its total equity funding to $80M, to fuel the expansion of its platform and global impact.
