How our _nology program works

  • We’re addressing the digital skills shortage by running our own technology training, designed to equip you with the skills required to launch an exciting career in tech.
  • You can view the Software Engineering curriculum here.
  • We’ll teach all the skills you need to thrive in your new role, from problem-solving to collaboration, and from coding to managing projects.
  • You’ll spend 12 weeks training with our expert coaches (full-time). It might sound daunting at first, but don’t worry – since 2018, our global team have helped hundreds of _nologists with no previous experience launch a thriving new tech career.
  • Training is open to any tech enthusiast, from any background. No previous coding experience or background in tech is necessary – just the passion and determination to learn!
  • Our aim is to tackle the skills shortage and lack of diversity within the tech sector by breaking down the barriers to entry and making space for everyone, regardless of their background.

OUR ASSESSMENT PROCESS

The _nology training is intensive, which is why we ensure everyone who joins us is ready for 12 weeks of fast-paced learning. Whilst you don’t need a background in tech, there are a few key skills we’ll be looking out for, including self-development, intellectual horsepower, learning on the fly, curiosity, honesty, integrity, problem-solving ability, and an encouraging/ sharing mentality. We view CVs ‘blind’ in order to be as inclusive as possible from the beginning.

Our assessment process has two stages that assess skills in communication, problem solving, teamwork and aptitude to learn. Upon completion of each stage, a selection of applicants will be invited to progress to the next stage. Here’s what to expect:

  • Stage 1 | Skills Assessment – An online assessment where you’ll be asked a series of logic and behavioural style questions to be answered in several formats like multiple choice, video, and text.
  • Stage 2 | Group Assessment – You’ll meet other like-minded individuals, take part in a beginners training session on JavaScript (one of the coding languages we teach), and get involved in a group problem-solving activity.

We encourage you to watch our 3min Coding Explained video for an overview of what coding is, and the types of programming languages we teach. You’ll see that building a website or app requires many different elements and skills that are foundational to becoming ​a software engineer.
