What is a Coding Kickstarter? Am I eligible?

Does it lead to a job role?

What makes someone eligible for the Coding Kickstarter classes?

The criteria to meet for being in our Coding Kickstarter classes is rather simple and is the same across all of our classes and courses. To be eligible for our classes you must meet the following:

  • You must identify as a woman or non-binary individual
  • You must be 18+

That's it! There's no need for any qualifications or previous experience. You can apply for them here. Please be aware that the classes are sometimes in high demand and students can be waitlisted on these occasions, but as long as you are eligible you are guaranteed a place - thank you for your patience!

How do I achieve a certificate?

For our Coding Kickstarter classes, you'll receive a certificate of completion if you have attended 6/8 sessions (the final session is vital!) and have submitted your final project, which your instructor will need to give a passing grade. If you believe you fit into this criteria but you haven’t received your certificate after two weeks, please don’t panic and get in touch with the Contact Us form so we can resolve this for you.

Do your Kickstarter classes lead to a job role?

No, our Coding Kickstarter classes do not lead to a job and you are not in any way tied to our sponsoring company as a student. It will prepare you for the tech assessment we have for our CFGdegree which does offer a job placement in some instances. If this is something you are interested in, after completing your beginner’s course you can apply for the CFGDegree
