We know how hard it is to run a business. But what’s even harder? Finding and hiring tech talent in a super saturated market, whilst trying to keep costs down. That feels impossible. But it’s not. And we’re here to help. With benefits like no recruitment fees, you’ll wonder how you didn’t know about us sooner.
Hi, we’re Command Shift. We teach people to code.
Better yet, we’re the UK’s top rated coding bootcamp, and we train passionate and driven people from all over the UK and Ireland to become Junior Software Developers in just 6 months.
Our curriculum includes:
And so much more.
Plus, as part of our BOOTCAMP course, our students work in small teams to complete a group project for their Graduation. They apply their coding and interpersonal skills to create and deploy their very own application from scratch: from creating an MVP to presenting live demos in their Graduation.
We pride ourselves on preparing our students not only technically, but for the real working world.
Our graduates are dedicated, motivated, and have a genuine want to learn and develop. As our BOOTCAMP course is part time and fully remote, many of our students study around their day job. They’ve balanced learning to code, their lives, and jobs for 6 months because they want to succeed in tech. That says a lot about their work ethic, determination, and ability. They’re the people you want on your team.
Not only this, but the majority of our students are career changers. The benefit? Life experience.
As our students have had previous careers, and are still working in their 9-5 whilst studying, they are already used to the working environment, and know what it’s like to be part of a business.
They really are the full package: technical knowledge and life experience. What more could you want? Apart from benefits from us of course, which you get too.
As we said earlier, we know how difficult running a business can be. So we offer lots of benefits if you choose to work with us. For example…
Hiring from us won’t cost you a penny. Unlike other coding schools, we don’t operate on a recruitment model - our aim is for our students to find employment quickly, and that they’ll enjoy. We won’t charge you for that.
However, we’ve built an incredibly supportive space here at Command Shift, and so we do ask that our hiring partners mirror this. We want our students to be supported in both professional and personal development.
All of our tutors are Software Engineers employed in the tech industry, who teach in the evenings and at the weekends, so you can trust that our students are learning the very best, and up-to-date, practices and technologies that are actually used in the industry.
Plus, our curriculum is constantly monitored, adapted, and updated so you can be sure that our students are ready to start working. Our most recent addition - ChatGPT training: how to use it effectively, and what to watch out for.
As part of our BOOTCAMP course, our graduates have lifelong access to our huge community of staff, alumni, and current students, that they can go to for support and questions if they get stuck. Not only does that free up valuable mid-level/senior capacity, but it also brings multiple perspectives to problems at no extra cost.
Plus, our graduates have permanent access to our extensive learning resources and materials, bringing new practices, ideas, and methods to your company. This could also help upskill your existing team.
As our BOOTCAMP is taught completely remotely, our graduates already have experience learning and working from home. They are fully competent with work-from-home technologies like Slack, Google Meet and Around, as well as peer-programming on GitHub and so much more. And they are able to self-motivate themselves, and get on with the work provided without needing to be in the office. No remote training needed.
Whatever the working environment, our graduates are ready for it, and will succeed no matter where they are.
