State College of Florida and Flatiron School team up to offer software engineering bootcamps
Flatiron School, a global higher education institution that trains students in 21st century skills with courses in software engineering, data science, cybersecurity and product design, announced its partnership with Florida State College, Manatee-Sarasota and its Coding Academy to launch several 24-week software engineering bootcamps for CFS students from early 2022.
Flatiron School will develop the program and select its faculty instructors for in-person bootcamps, while SCF will oversee student registration and career coaching, the two organizations said in a press release.
“This is an exciting partnership that has the potential to change lives in very profound ways,” said Kate Cassino, CEO of Flatiron School, in the announcement. “Whether you are trying to convert to another career or hone your skills to broaden your current career path, these bootcamps are an attractive option for those looking to break into technology. “
“We chose Flatiron School for these programs because of its program’s proven success in educating students from diverse backgrounds; you can be successful with the Flatiron School program even if you don’t have computer experience, ”said Todd G. Fritch, executive vice president of the State College of Florida.
SCF – the first and largest public state college in the region, with 11,000 students on campuses in Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Venice and online courses – is the newest addition to Flatiron School’s partner list using its program and teaching.
