Code for All emerged from a paradox: on one hand, there are more than 17 million unemployed people in Europe; but on another, 900.000 developers will be needed by 2020.
Apart from the strong technical component, our team of teachers prepares students with soft skills needed for the job market and connects students with companies, ensuring not only employment for graduates but the right fit for companies.
Currently, our bootcamps have impacted more than 300 people and we have an employability rate of 96%.
We also decided to go to the root of the problem and created a programming platform, where teachers teach kids, and themselves, how to code. Our curriculum is designed for grades K-6, aligned with traditional subjects (like maths and science) and based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal.
According to several studies, programming helps develop logical reasoning and problem solving and improves performance in subjects like maths and science. A study by Nova SBE from January 2015 to June 2016 showed that students on a Code for All pilot improved their grades in maths between 9% and 17% and between 2% and 5% in logical reasoning.
In September 2018, more than 50.000 students were enrolled, by their teachers, on our platform to start programming with Code for All.
