Your IT career
Hey, welcome to Young_Coders: the kickstart for IT careers. Do you dream of working as a tech professional, but have no training in it? We got your back. Maybe you have already learned a little bit of programming during your studies, you have been tinkering with computers in your spare time for years or you are just entering the world of IT: we will help you get a great start on your tech career.
Wondering how we can help you? Answer a few short questions below to see what we can do in your situation.
Tech training and work experience
Do you already have some basic programming experience and are looking for a way to start a career in IT? Then our Challengership is for you. In this two-year program, you will learn a lot about IT in a customized study track and immediately gain work experience in a tech position that suits you. You will play a number of games and talk with you to discover what your capabilities, tech interests and ambitions are. On the basis of this, we look for a learning path and an assignment that really suits you, after which you can start in the Challengership.
What is the Challengership:
✅ Challenging traineeship for inquisitive top talents;
✅ Deep dive into tech in a customized training course;
✅ Personal specialization and extensive soft skills training;
✅ Permanent contract and full-time salary in a work-learning program that suits you.
What the Challengership isn’t:
❌ Accessible IT traineeship;
❌ Generic training with a little programming;
❌ Work for various clients (flat secondment).
We choose customization and personal attention. We go for the best match between our affiliated organizations and our Challengers. We train for many different IT roles. Maybe you already know exactly which direction you want to go, or you are still looking for the right direction. We will discover that together in our extensive selection and matching process.
