Jenny's Story.

“I started on Code Nations explore course, then progressed to Develop and then enrolled on the 12-week bootcamp in January 2020, hoping to change my career. I had no coding skills or knowledge when I started, but my instructors assured me that at the end of my training I would be part of a team building a fullstack app.

They were right, that’s exactly what happened. They gave me the skills to build my own website using React and many other projects that I was so proud of.

I’m now an Apprentice at Urban Technology Group and so pleased to be given this life changing opportunity”
