Our graduates now have tech jobs all over the world

Covid-19: While our team of employees, mentors, tutors, and career specialists are working from home in an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19, CareerFoundry is operating as usual. All our programs are 100% online, and we’re offering more flexible study and payment options for the foreseeable future. If you’re interested in taking one of our programs, we’d love to speak to you about how we can support you during this time.

Become a web developer in as little as 5 months

Pay no tuition until you get hired

CareerFoundry has partnered with CHANCEN eG to finance your education and give you the freedom to build a career you love. With our Income Share Agreement, you’ll pay nothing until you start making an annual income of €27,000 or more.

Not sure what an income share agreement is?

An income share agreement (ISA) is a contract agreement that allows you to take a CareerFoundry program without paying any fees upfront. This allows you to focus on your program, while CHANCEN eG takes care of your tuition fees partially or completely. When you graduate and find a job, income-based repayments are made to CHANCEN eG over a 5-year period.

Read on to discover how you can take advantage of an income share agreement to become a fully-fledged web developer in a matter of months with the CareerFoundry Full-Stack Web Development Program!

Why become a web developer?

A job you will love

As a web developer, you have the satisfaction of solving complex problems and turning your ideas into reality with just your laptop. Web development was rated in Career Karma's top 25 tech jobs in 2021.

High demand means high pay

Employers struggle to find qualified web developers, and the demand keeps growing. The average developer salary in Germany is €53,304—though that will vary depending on seniority and location.

A flexible career path

As a web developer, you'll be equipped to work for startups, agencies or even large companies on a freelance basis, full-time, or remotely.

Why choose CareerFoundry?

Human-centric learning

Our Dual Mentorship Model ensures that you get all the support you need. You’ll have a tutor—an experienced web developer responsible for evaluating your exercises within 24 hours of submission, and a mentor—an industry expert who gives detailed written, video, and on-call feedback on your portfolio pieces.

Flexibility with accountability

With an income share agreement and our flexibly-paced program, you can schedule your studies around your life, rather than the other way around. Your mentor, tutor, student advisor, and career specialist will keep you accountable and help you stay on track.

Successful, satisfied graduates

96% of our eligible graduates get a tech job within 180 days of graduation—and at companies like Google, Apple, and Amazon. This means that you can be confident that this program will get you where you want to go—working as a web developer in a job you love.

A background in coding or tech

This program is designed to take you from beginner to job-ready—regardless of your background. And now more than ever, employers see bootcamp graduates as excellent job candidates. A 2021 study by Career Karma found that companies as respected as Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft are some of the largest employers of bootcamp graduates. The same study revealed that, in 2020, those same companies hired up to 120% more bootcamps graduates than they did in 2019!

To learn all on your own

You can enjoy the flexibility of online learning with the accountability and one-on-one attention traditionally associated with brick-and-mortar institutions. Much like a college professor might inspire you to pursue a career in a certain field, your mentor, tutor, career specialist, and student advisor will keep you motivated and on track.

• To pay out of pocket

With an Income Share Agreement, you won't need to pay anything until you land a well-paying job of €27,000 or more per year.

FAQ

1.    What are the differences between the programs for private customers and students with an ISA?
In terms of learning content and delivery, there is no difference between the programs offered to private customers and the programs offered to students with an income share agreement (ISA). However, students with an ISA do have less flexibility in terms of time during the Intro to Frontend Development Course, as they’re required to complete this course within the 1-month trial period in order to continue with their ISA and the full program. If the intro course is not completed in a timely manner, the ISA contact will simply expire.
2.    How does the online program actually work?
All CareerFoundry programs are completely online. Students can access the program content from the first day of the program via their personal account. The program content mainly consists of written material that is broken down into individual sections, which we call "Achievements." Each Achievement is made up of exercises which must be completed and submitted via the CareerFoundry platform to be reviewed and approved by the assigned tutor. Although the curriculum may feature some videos, it's important to note that the program is not delivered via live webinar, and there are no virtual lessons to attend. The program is considered complete once the student has completed and submitted all exercises via the platform and had them approved by their tutor and mentor. There is no final exam. Upon successful program completion, the student can download their certificate via their user account. At the start of the program, the student will be assigned both a dedicated tutor and a mentor. All communication with the tutor and mentor takes place via the platform. Tutors are responsible for answering any questions about the program content and for reviewing exercises submitted by the student. They will assess the exercises and provide feedback. mentors are industry experts, responsible for providing feedback at the end of each Achievement. Students can also schedule periodic video calls with their mentor in order to receive individualized feedback. Students are also supported by the student advisor team. Student advisors are there to answer any questions the student might have, and can be contacted via the platform. As part of a huge online community, students also have the opportunity to share their experience with other students and to organize and take part in local meetups. Around halfway through the program (51% completion), students will also have access to our free Job Preparation Course, as well as to a dedicated career specialist. You can read more here.
3.    What does ZFU-approved mean?
The ZFU, or Staatliche Zentralstelle für Fernunterricht, is the state body for distance learning in Germany. In order to offer our Web Development Program publicly, it must undergo a rigorous quality assurance and certification process. On successful completion of this process, the program is assigned a unique approval number (7359420) which can be checked against a public register.

4.    How can I get the Income Share Agreement (ISA)?
In order to get an ISA, you need to be accepted by both CHANCEN eG, our ISA provider, and CareerFoundry, the service provider for your career-change program. You will need to proceed through an application process with both companies. You can start this process by applying here with CHANCEN eG and by booking a call with one of our program advisors at CareerFoundry. If you don't get accepted by one of the parties, you may be eligible to study with another school with an ISA, or you may be able to take advantage of another funding or payment option at CareerFoundry.
5.    How do I know if I am eligible for an ISA?
Your financial background is not taken into account when applying for an ISA with CHANCEN eG. Whether you are a suitable candidate will be decided during an interview process. During this process, you can get to know the team at CHANCEN eG and they can get to know you, ensuring that the agreement suits both parties. We therefore recommend starting the application process to find out whether you are eligible.
6.    Where and when am I supposed to work on the program?
Our programs are completely online, so you can study when and where you need to (though we recommend a minimum of 15-20 hours per week to stay on track for graduation. Students with an ISA are required to complete the Intro to Frontend Development Course within the 1-month trial period in order to continue with their ISA and the full program.
7.    What happens if I don’t work on the program or log into the platform on a regular basis?
Students with an ISA are required to complete the Intro to Frontend Development Course within the 1-month trial period in order to continue with their ISA and the full program. If the intro course is not completed in a timely manner, the ISA contact will simply expire. Once you complete the intro course within the trial period, you'll have more flexibility around the timing and pace of your studies, but you'll want to plan on at least 15-20 hours per week to stay on track for graduation (7 months from your start date).
8.    Is there an exam to pass at the end of the program?
There is no final exam to pass in order to finish the program. For each module, there are tasks to submit which need to be approved by your mentor or tutor. During the program, students work on a project that has to be developed by the end of the program. Once you have fully completed the program, you can download your personal certificate from the main dashboard.
9.    What happens once I have finished the program?
Once you have finished the program, you will be able to download your certificate via the dashboard. You will then need to complete the Job Preparation Course and start working on your job search.
10.    How am I supported in my job search?
Once you are 51% of the way through the full program, you can sign up to the Job Preparation Course via your personal dashboard. The course consists of two Achievements, and you have up to one month (30 days) after you’ve completed the Full-Stack Web Development Program to complete the Job Preparation Course. Upon successful completion of the Job Preparation Course, you can work with a dedicated career specialist for a further six months. They will give you the tools you need to start applying for a job in tech.
11.    When do I start repayments for the Full-Stack Web Development Program?
The repayment period begins on January 1st of the year following the successful completion of your studies. The actual repayments only start once you earn above the minimum income threshold of 27,000 euros. You'll be expected to communicate with CHANCEN eG frequently and independently about any changes to your income. For more information, please refer to CHANCEN eG.
12.    What type of income is the repayment structure based on?
The repayment is based on gross (before tax) income. The repayment period starts when your gross income exceeds a threshold of 27,000 Euros per year. CHANCEN eG will deduct around 9% from that sum for “Werbungskosten” and an additional 16.4% for self-employed people. Final point of truth for repayment calculation is the tax income declaration of the year. Note that you'll be expected to communicate with CHANCEN eG frequently and independently about any changes to your income.
13.    What happens if I cancel my program?
In this case, the percentage of your repayment structure is adjusted according to the amount of the program you have studied. For example, if you terminate your studies half way through, the percentage on repayments is halved. Even in this instance, your repayments will only start once your income is above the minimum threshold. You can therefore, start another degree or apprenticeship without financial stress.
14.    What if I have a question that isn’t answered here?
If you have further questions about how the ISA works, you can review this FAQ on CHANCEN eG's site and contact their team directly. You can also book a call with one of our program advisors to answer any questions you may have.
15.    What are minimum system and hardware requirements?
