LEARNING BY DOING
The principle of learning by doing is what drives all our programmes. We believe strongly that the best way to teach is by demonstrating and then asking the students to replicate. All programmes in the course of this boot camp will be fully practical. Students are therefore, advised to come to the camp with a laptop.
At the end of the training, participants will be required to identify a key challenge and solve it, either as a group or as individuals. Participants will present their solutions and receive specific, and actionable feedback. This is the hallmark of the boot camp.
A standard comprehensive manual will be given to all students before commencement of classes. This will be mailed to participants upon confirmation of registration and hardcopies may also be made available.
At the end of the bootcamp, certificates will be awarded to participants who attend all the modules and fulfill all requirements of the bootcamp.
At the end of the training, all participants will be assigned to experts in the Tech field, for mentoring purposes and some will be placed on internship.
