High demand means high pay
Employers struggle to find qualified web developers, and the demand keeps growing. The average junior web developer salary in Germany is €36,813 per year, while mid-level web developers average €48,375 (Glassdoor Salaries, 2020).

What you need:
You may be eligible for a Bildungsgutschein if you are currently unemployed or facing the possibility of unemployment. You'll also need:

The Bildungsgutschein program is only available for German residents who are in possession of their Anmeldebescheinigung (proof that you are registered and living in Germany).

You'll need to dedicate 40 hours per week to finish the program in 5.3 months

What you don’t need:
• A background in design or tech
You don’t need a college degree or previous work experience that is related to coding or tech in order to be successful on the program or land a job. The program has been built to take you from beginner to job-ready. A study by job board Indeed found that 84% of employers think bootcamp grads are ‘more prepared’ or ‘just as prepared’ to be high performers as degree holders. (Indeed)

You can complete the course in 5.3 months by committing 40 hours per week.
• To learn all on your own
The course combines the flexibility of online learning with the personalized mentorship and guidance traditionally associated with brick-and-mortar institutions.

• To lose your unemployment benefits
While taking the Full-Stack Web Development Program with a Bildungsgutschein, you are still entitled to receive your unemployment benefits.
