SIT Academy launches new part-time Coding and Data Science Bootcamps

With a successful track record and an alumni base of 450 graduates, SIT Academy now makes its popular Bootcamps available to those who want a career change in tech while staying with their jobs.

The new format of part-time Bootcamps, with lectures every Tuesday and Thursday evening (remote) as well as every second Saturday on our Campus in Zürich, allows students to keep working in their existing companies while at the same time doing the Bootcamp and learning new skills to take the next step in their careers or change career paths.

In the new part-time program, students learn the same tools and technologies as the full-time programs in just 22 weeks, it is opening-up new opportunities for those that might not be able to leave their jobs or take 3 months off.

Many potential learners can’t afford to leave their jobs or take a sabbatical. Some high-ranked executives also want to be 100 percent sure they want to start a new career before leaving everything behind. Especially in times of Corona, anything involving change is perceived as a risk. The part-programs answer all of these concerns.  

Laurent, CEO of SIT Academy says: “We’ve been getting requests for part-time programs for quite a while, and we have been devising the right format in the process. We’re now ready to make it happen. Many companies don’t want to let their employees attend our Bootcamps because it means they’ll be gone for a couple of months. SIT Academy thinks companies will now be more open-minded about a part-time program and support their employees, which will also be an opportunity for them to upskill their current workforce.”
