Are you already working as a developer, or experienced and looking for your next challenge? Would you like to learn how to develop iOs apps?
Digital Jersey is building on the success of its coding course and in response to a lack of app developers in the island, is launching a new iOs app developers’ course.
The course is not for beginners, you will need to have at least one year’s experience in development, with some server side knowledge and understanding of SQL. You will also need a mac machine with XCode and plenty of enthusiasm and drive.
The course is able to take place due to additional funding secured from the Government’s economic growth pot.
The aim of the course is to help reduce the skills shortage in Jersey’s digital sector, cutting the amount of work that has to be commissioned off-island and up-skilling our existing workforce.
The course is free for students and the format will be similar to the popular coding course, six months, part time. Run two evenings a week with additional home working, you will be able to continue your day job while also upgrading your skills.
The first three months will be full-scale learning with the experienced mentors. The final three months will involve working on real-life projects (chosen by course leaders) to put those skills into practice.
The programme will be based at Digital Jersey’s Hub where learners can use the space for their personal learning and group projects. The programme will involve a mixture of classroom-based activity and self-taught study, with no examinations. The programme is interactive, utilising multiple media with a flexible format, and has been created, and will be supported by, ‘Mentors’ working in the Digital industry, so learners can be sure that what they’re learning is immediately relevant and up to date.
