Trilogy Education announces first Coding Boot Camp in partnership with the University of Sydney

This part-time program offers a web development course beginning 25 June 2019

SYDNEY, Australia (20 March 2019) – Leading workforce accelerator Trilogy Education has today announced the launch of its first coding boot camp at the University of Sydney. Geared toward adult learners, the Coding Boot Camp at the University of Sydney teaches the front-end and back-end skills necessary to become a proficient full stack developer.

The 24-week, part-time non-award program begins 25 June 2019, with two, three-hour evening classes during the week (6:30pm to 9:30pm) and a four-hour class on Saturdays (10am to 2pm). Enrolment is now open.

We are proud to partner with the University of Sydney to provide Sydney’s workforce with more pathways into Australia’s growing tech sector. The University of Sydney joins a global network of leading universities that are partnering with Trilogy Education to build programs that can adapt quickly to the needs of the market and meet their rigorous standards for quality.

- Dan Sommer, CEO and Founder of Trilogy Education

The competition for tech talent is becoming fiercer among employers in Sydney and across the country. Full stack developer is the most in-demand job in Australia according to a report last year by Indeed that looked at total number of job postings. In the next five years alone, Australia is expected to need over 200,000 more technology workers.

The fast pace of growth in the technology industry is driving us to launch more programs that meet the needs of Sydney’s working professionals. The Coding Boot Camp at the University of Sydney will help working adults here in Sydney capitalise on the exploding demand for digital skills and bridge local hiring gaps. By partnering with Trilogy Education to deliver the non-award program, we ensure that course participants get access to a continuously updated curriculum and instructors who work in the tech industry themselves.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education), the University of Sydney

Pairing the University of Sydney’s strengths with Trilogy’s market-driven coding and career curriculum offers course participants both the competence and confidence to succeed in the technology industry. The program’s curriculum covers the basics of coding, algorithms and data structure plus intensive training in JavaScript, Node.js, HTML, CSS, jQuery, Java and more. No previous training or experience is required, but applicants should have an understanding of coding basics.

In addition to classroom instruction, course participants will spend 20 hours a week on projects, homework, and experiential learning activities outside the classroom. They will also build a professional project portfolio to showcase their abilities and hone their competitive edge in the employment market. Course participants will also receive a range of career-planning services, portfolio reviews, recruiting assistance, student support, and extensive staff support.

Boot Camp course participants will gain skills to develop dynamic end-to-end web applications, as well as receive a Statement of Completion.
