Become a challenger
Okay, so you’re interested in a great tech career, otherwise you would have already dropped out at this paragraph. So, now what? We’ll be happy to explain that to you!
There are a few ways to qualify for our Challengership.
01. You already have some programming experience and you know what you want.
02. You already have some programming experience but have no idea which role within IT is right for you.
No problem either! Take our interest assessment, and in a few minutes you’ll know where possibly your passion lies within IT. After taking the test, you can register right away if you want. During the selection process, we explore together what you enjoy most about IT.
03. I really want to work in IT but I don’t have any programming experience yet.
We can also help you out with that. Through our Challengership track, you can follow a training path through our online platform Ontdek_Tech in which you will gain basic knowledge of IT systems and learn a good grounding in programming. Once you have completed the Challengership track, you can register yourself for the Challengership. Read more about the Challengership track here.
04. Wow! Wait a minute! That’s all a little too fast for me. I would like some more information first.
We get that. It’s pretty intense to make a switch in your career. But especially when you are still young, it is the time to tie the knot. Of course you will find a lot of information on our website, but do you want to have a chat with our career coach? Then schedule an appointment with us through our online calendar. We will then discuss together what your options are and whether we can help you further.
