Imagine getting free education and training in the information and communications technology sector.
It has now been made possible by the co-founder of We Think Code, Arlene Mulder.
We Think Code is due to open in 2016 and offers people between 17 and 35 to do a two year course in coding for free.
The new technology university with neither formal teachers nor traditional classrooms, is looking to bridge the gap between youth unemployment and skills shortages.
Mulder said the institution runs 42 training facilities in France.
“Prospective students have to take two tests that come in a form of a game on our website.”
Prospective students can register on the website www.borntocode.co.za
Successful candidates will be invited to attend one of three boot camps that will take place in Braamfontein in Johannesburg at the beginning of 2016.
The course will run for two years for free. Students will learn how to become the country’s top-class computer programmers, those who make it will get a monthly stripend.— Co-founder of We Think Code, Arlene Mulder
Mulder added that successful students will be guaranteed a job after the course.
