Step 2: Identifying and screening talent for excellence

From day one of becoming a Bright Network member, every interaction made on the platform builds up a deep understanding of each student’s aptitude, interests and potential to be a software developer. Our experts in talent selection and screening use this data to invite a select cohort onto a one week software development programme.

Members who excel during the one week programme and assessment are welcomed onto the full time 12 week bootcamp.

Step 3: Best in class training

Successful candidates receive the very best training and support on the 12 week programme, developed by an ex-Microsoft trainer and the input of technology teams at leading companies.

The programme involves real-world project work, as well as extensive development of the soft skills that technology engineers need to make an impact on day one within the teams they will join. See our training programme in full.
