Instructor-led Progressive Paths

Instructor-led classes are a structured and collaborative learning environment that follows a set timeline. Students receive direct instruction and feedback from the instructor, and have the opportunity to develop essential teamwork and collaboration skills through hands-on activities. This combination of structure, collaboration, and real-world experience provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.

Self-paced Progressive Tracks

Our self-paced coding program offers students the flexibility to learn at their own pace, with the support of qualified instructors available on demand. This approach encourages students to focus on one topic at a time and master those skills from beginner to advanced level.
