Discover Coding


Last year, Weston College started offering local people the opportunity to become coders, through the Coding Skills Bootcamp, which is part of the Government’s Skills for Life initiative.

People from across the South West have taken the course, which gives learners the opportunity to learn Python, as well as developing the required industry skillset and expertise, to help IT organisations automate their infrastructure.

The Bootcamp is open to individuals looking to upskill or develop new skills to change careers, but also to employers who want to invest in their staff through this 12-week development opportunity.

Priya recently completed the Bootcamp at the Bristol Training Institute, and said: “I was looking to change my career, and having already had a background in digital, I wanted to explore coding and this was the perfect opportunity.

“I have developed a range of skills, which are really useful to me, but also in demand from employers; such as software coding in python and data handling.”

The course which lasts 12-weeks, is delivered over one day, and one evening, per week. It is delivered in two locations, with learners having the option to study in Bristol or Weston-super-Mare.

Priya added: “Having the opportunity to study in Bristol was really beneficial to me, as the Bristol Training Institute is in central Bristol and easy to get to. The facilities were also great and I was really impresses with the teachers – they were extremely helpful.”
