How is a typical day structured on the 12-week software engineering course?

Everyday of your software engineering training, you will learn and embed new content, but typically your day will be structured roughly as follows:

  • 09:00 - 11:00: Recapping what you covered the day before

  • 11:00 - 14:00: Your instructor will run a training session to cover that day’s material, consisting of explaining concepts, demonstrations, code-alongs, practicals and answering your questions

  • 14:00 - 16:30: You'll be set practical work to stress test and embed your understanding of what was taught earlier in the day

  • 16:30 - 17:30: You're instructor will go through the practical assignment with you to answer any questions you have and check you've understood it

  • 17:30 onwards: Practice. Take every opportunity to play with what you're learning to give yourself flight time and improve muscle memory

  • At any time: If you need help you can talk to your instructor or Teaching Assistant and they will help you get to grips with understanding the material
