Derby College Group (DCG) are delighted to announce our partnership with D2N2 Local Enterprise on the launch of the new free skills bootcamps available within the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire region.

Our free 12-week full-time Coding and Software Development Bootcamp will provide you with the knowledge and skills employers are seeking for when recruiting for software developer roles, taught by our digital skills coach. This course has been designed by the likes of Amazon and Google as well as partnering with local digital employers across the area to deliver the course.

Once you graduate from the bootcamp you will be offered a guaranteed interview with a software developer firm, and if you’re successful, be offered a place on our exciting new Software Developer Technician Apprenticeship programme. The apprenticeship will allow you to earn a salary whilst learning the skills, knowledge and behaviours you will need for a new career as a software development professional.

Within Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, coding and software development has been identified by employers as one of the key skills gaps within the local region. By attending our bootcamp, you are boosting your employability by developing the digital skills most in-demand within your area and building the possibility of working within a high earning career, with the average salary in Derby around £40,000 a year and £46,000 within the United Kingdom.

You will learn and develop common sought-after coding and software development skills employers are seeking for in their potential employees. . If you are interested in our free digital bootcamp, you must meet the following criteria:
