Learn to code, anywhere in the world

Providing our students and apprentices with an opportunity to study from home is super important – so we’ve combined the best of virtual working with the best of campus life to create an environment that’s professional, collaborative and fun.

We’ve used Moodle Cloud and BigBlueButton to provide remote students with a high quality online learning experience to complement our courses. We also use Slack, Zoom, Teams, Hangout and FaceTime to catch up and hang out.

The VLE means all of our students can be immersed in their classroom learning, have the full bootcamp experience and access the support of the Code Nation team.

Our courses prepare students for life in the working world – regardless of where they study. Virtual students not only learn to code, they learn to code remotely and that gives them access to a whole new world of opportunities.

Working virtually is not only fun and engaging, but it’s helped more with teamwork whilst building our collective team project. Whether we used Google hangouts or Moodle, I felt we were a lot closer as a team. We could ask for help and screen share to everyone.

Master: Coding Course Graduate

What our students say

16 year old Matthew wanted to work as a Software Developer and he knew it wasn’t just college or uni that could get him there…

He joined our 12-week coding bootcamp as a self-funded student, found inspiration from the Pledgers who came to visit, and knew he’d made the right choice. Fast forward a few weeks, he’s learnt multiple coding languages, worked on team projects and landed a £25k role in his first 8 weeks at Code Nation.

Kyle had always been passionate about tech, but could never turn that interest into a career…

Until that is, he joined our Master: Coding course. Based out of our Chester campus, Kyle learned an immersive curriculum that gave him all the technical, professional and interpersonal skills he needs to succeed in the world of work, and graduated with a job as a Junior Developer at Zoek!

Amazing experience. Kind, friendly and incredibly fun atmosphere to work in that left me never wanting to leave! Stuart and Imran's' guidance was invaluable, and I am positive that I will still be contacting them in years to come when I need some help. This was an incredible journey where I have learnt skills in areas I've never heard of, and I have made amazing memories and friendships along the way.

With no prior coding experience, Code Nation turned me into a Junior Developer! Code Nation gave me the tools and learning environment I needed to transition from a beginner to professional in 12 weeks.
