Szabina Sinko

Coding student Szabina has been working full-time for over 10 years and has been considering retraining for a while.

“I had no previous coding experience, and this course is giving me a great insight into coding and the IT sector as a whole. As well as the fundamentals of coding, including python, we have also learnt a lot about project management which will be useful when I make the step into a new career. The teachers have been amazing and very supportive, I’m excited about what this will lead to. “If you are thinking of retraining, I would recommend it, it’s been a great experience. Don’t be scared, have the courage, believe in yourself and give it a go!”.

Unsure what courses is right for you?
