Because it takes a variety of skills to teach our diverse students, program faculty must meet a variety of standards to join the instructional team. They must be technically proficient (either through 1+ years experience as a software developer in the language in which they are teaching, and/or through earning Eleven Fiftys digital badges and completing our trainee program) and they must be pedagogically proficient in the Eleven Fifty Academy Curriculum (either by shadow teaching and/or completing our trainee program). We use a team teaching approach to make sure that each learner has the opportunity to learn in the way they learn best. Workshop instructors are proficient in their subject area through a variety of experience, industry standard certifications, and standard education credentials.Note high standards are maintained by both qualitative and quantitative reviews. Weekly student surveys allow students to express direct feedback, but also comparisons across cohorts surface any concerns about instructional quality of which students may not be aware.
During the Software Development program, students will be learning HTML5, CSS, C#, .Net Framework, Typescript, Agile Methodologies and more! Through progression in the track, our goal is to assist students in growingtheir technical knowledge and skills as well as professionalism and team work. Upon graduation of the program they have the skills needed to be considered a Junior Developer and pursue brand specific certifications.
High School Diploma or Equivalent
This program is designed for those that have little or no experience with coding. As you move through our Admissions process, attend the Introduction class and complete the prework, we will help you determine if coding and our immersive-learning style is a fit for you. There is up to 20 hours of prework required before starting the class. Students must also complete a digital literacy assessment, an information literacy assessment, and a typing test. For students who do not pass the assessments, we provide remediation until they are prepared for the course (assuming they want to eventually enroll).
