Nothing may be more encouraging to students than their teacher’s confidence in their success. And some truly innovative coding programs are employing this tactic, and actually betting on the positive outcomes of their students. Take a look at a few coding camps that put full confidence in their students, and how the growing need for a tech-savvy workforce is shaping our digital age.
One company that bets on their students is called App Academy, with locations in New York and San Francisco. This computer programming school offers a number of different courses, both on their campuses and online, with the option of only paying tuition after you’ve been hired as a developer. Once placed, students pay their tuition with a percentage of their salary, a concept also referred to as income sharing. This innovative take on education has made waves in the tech industry, and has been described by Wired as “flipping the script on student loans.”
