As part of West Midland Combined Authority’s initiative for economic empowerment for both the unemployed and the employed to progress into digital occupations, Niyo Enterprise and Coding Black Females have partnered together to put on a 6-month Coding Bootcamp programme in the UK for black women over 18, unemployed or employed with a salary of under £25k.
This programme is for women who have an interest in getting into a tech career and the bootcamp will empower individuals from the UK with the skills and knowledge to become web/mobile application developers.
The course will be a part time coding bootcamp. It will run twice a week in the evening for 30 weeks between 6pm and 9pm. The company says it will be an intense course, and learners will be required to do homework to ensure that they are getting the most from the course.
The course will cover the main content that has been described below, plus ‘Empowerment Days’ which aim to inspire and empower the learners. The Black Codher programme will cover the following:
- Creation of relevant technical skills used in industry specifically in these areas:
- Software programming
- Data management and analytics
- Design thinking
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence
After the 30 week programme the course will provide support in helping individuals secure jobs following the training with its partner employers.
