WeThinkCode is looking for coding students for 2019, and you don’t even need Matric to get in!
WeThinkCode is a tuition-free training institution with campuses in Johannesburg and Cape Town. Founded three years ago, WeThinkCode has large corporate sponsors like Standard Bank, Investec, FNB, Dimension Data, Telkom and Outsurance, which offer employment opportunities in their IT departments to some WeThinkCode graduates.
No prior education is needed, including a matric. You just have to be between the ages of 17 and 35, with international students only having to pay for a study visa if needed.
Applicants provide basic information as part of the online registration process and then have to play online application games at apply.wethinkcode.co.za. The games test applicants' abilities to solve problems.
Don’t have a PC yet? Those without computers can make use of WeThinkCode's computers by going to one of the campuses in person during regular testing days.
Those who've passed the online application will be invited to participate in a month-long bootcamp, which will then decide who is suitable for the full-time course. WeThinkCode see amazing potential and demand in SA and plan to have 5 more campuses by 2024.
