We're back (in-person)Published March 13, 2022By ProjectFunction
Returning to our PF-standard, in-person courses safely and responsibly, with full Covid-19 precautions in mind
After the turbulent many months of our normal schedules being affected by a pandemic, we’re excited to share the news that PF will be returning with an in-person course (#PFWave7), Intro to Web Dev, starting April 12th (Nonsuch Studios, 2 Lower Parliament St, Nottingham, NG1 1EH).
Based on conversations with our past learners, it is clear that options are limited, with choices being 100% commitment-based bootcamps or the self-disciplined figure-it-out-yourself path for those trying to experience the Tech industry, first-hand. PF courses offer a zero-commitment, group-based learning opportunity that are unique in offering.
Over the past year, we’ve also come to realise that given our team capacity and the quality we strive to reach with our courses, recreating the relaxed and encouraging environment that our learners have come to expect, in an all-remote setting, is quite the challenge. This challenge is especially heightened when trying to avoid Zoom fatigue and making sure no learner is at a disadvantage due to lack of access to a laptop or the internet.
Thus, we will be returning to our PF-standard, in-person courses safely and responsibly, with full Covid-19 precautions in mind.
To celebrate ProjectFunction turning 3(!), a bursary of £180 will be made available to learners upon successful completion of this course (all thanks to the on-going support of our Patrons!)
What’s more: we’re also starting a referral scheme.
Toni Morrison captures best the need for empowering others in her quote: "When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else.”
When you refer someone, you are choosing to lift as you climb! Our referral scheme is designed to celebrate this act by offering referees of successful learners to choose between winning a mystery prize or contributing it back to support PF in its mission.
Learners can include a contact detail to their referees when they signup. We will follow-up with all referees of successful learners once the course has ended with more details.
