The Competition Process
Learning to code with Makers Academy is a serious commitment. To be considered you must complete two online resources Codecademy Ruby and Chapters 1-8 of Learn to Program by Chris Pine – around four days’ work, once that work is completed you will be sent a second task and from that the top 20 people will be invited for an interview and from that one lucky winner will be chosen!
- I'm not 18 yet can I still enter this competiton?
You are still welcome to enter the competiton and complete the online resouces. If you win, you will have to wait until you are 18 to enroll but in the in the interim we can send you lots of resources and potentially give you access to our pre-course.
- What is the criteria?
The overall winner that will be selected will have a real interest and desire to learn to code, would have finished Codeacademy and the Chris Pine task, completed 2nd phase and passed the Makers Academy interview. You will need to be able to commit 3 months full-time and be aged 18 at the start of the course.
- When is the deadline?
We will stop taking in more enteries by December the 1st but the winner could be potentially selected before then so the quicker you do the work and show your commitment the more likely you might be in with a chance to win!
- Can I take this part time?
Unfortunately not. One of the keys to our course is being immersed into a full time coding. We don't offer a part time course at the moment.
- Do you offer any kind of post-graduation assistance?
Absolutely. We want to help in any way that we can - be that helping a student find their first (or second or third) position or just merely providing advice. We have built an extensive alumni network for all graduates. We now have a full time team to look after all post course arrangements and ensure you get a job.
