Fast track your Web Design Career

Clara Kim is about to complete her 12 week intensive Web Design Bootcamp at Yoobee Auckland.

Clara is a marketing graduate who wanted to head down a different pathway. “I heard it was a three month intensive course, and I really did start learning right away! It has been really cool and really great” says Clara.

The course provides students with an intensive 3 month programme to fast track them into a job in front end web design and/or development.  The students learn HTML, CSS, Javascript including JQuery, information architecture, layout and design principles, visual design, usability and accessibility.  When they graduate Yoobee provides opportunities for internships.

So did it meet Clara’s expectations? “Yeah it sure did! I didn’t know anything about coding and I learnt so much from HTML, CSS and Javascript. It was really intensive! [she laughs]. I spent almost the whole day doing this course, but the time went very quickly. I have finished 9 projects already. I have learnt a lot from doing this”.

The course is offered in Auckland and Christchurch.  Yoobee provides all the equipment and 30 hours of tuition a week and assists you to find an internship to get you into the workforce.

It is heavily project based, hands on learning. You will focus on core technologies and tools and techniques at the beginning.  As the course progresses, the training wheels come off.  It is intensive, so be prepared for it to take over your life for three months, but the rewards are worth it at the end.

One last question for Clara. Do you think you achieved a lot from this course? “I would definitely say yes! I now know I want to work in front end design and development and this course has given me a broad choice of what I can do”.

There are Bootcamps coming up soon in both Auckland and Christchurch, find out more here.
