"I found the curriculum excellent. Even from before the course itself began, I found the course prep section really helpful. I really liked that there was a great balance between theory and practical applications and really have to congratulate on the structure of the course, building as it does from an intro to the tools and moving onward on each task to more complex themes. The platform I found really easy to use, intuitive and nicely designed."
Build an impressive portfolio
Follow a flexible pace
There are no live tutorials or webinars and you’re not required to be online at specific times. You'll have access to the course material in written form along with supplementary videos, and you'll work through the lessons in your own time, with your Tutor and Mentor reviewing them as you go.
Work towards project milestones
Your daily/weekly schedule might differ during the course due to the variety of your coursework and your other commitments. Even though the course is flexibly paced, you still have a 7-month deadline with interim milestones.
Get support & accountability
Both our own research and the advice we receive from former students tell us that the key to doing well and completing the course on time is submitting tasks regularly. We'll help you stay on track by providing you with a course progress and time meter, plus regular check-ins from your dedicated Student Advisor. If you need to take a break for vacation or sick days, this can be discussed with your Student Advisor—they're always there to help!
"I liked that my mentor provided the type of pushback that a supervisor in a real job would when reviewing my work. He held me to a high standard because he could see my potential."
Meet your dedicated team
A Mentor is a senior web developer with over 5 years’ experience. They will conduct detailed video reviews of each portfolio piece you complete throughout the course. You can schedule as many calls as you want with your Mentor via our platform's built-in calendar tool, ensuring you get support when you need it.

"I think one of the most important parts of the CF program is the unified community of like-minded individuals all in the middle of bettering themselves and working on their own career change. It creates this social web of support where anyone can reach out at any time for help. I started out new and overwhelmed at first, but seeing how supportive everyone was then and now is definitely something that I really appreciate. I’ve made a lot of tangible connections and friends with current students and past alumni this way and see tremendous value in it."
