Daily wrap-up
The go-to course for anyone who's even remotely interested in a role in tech!

This was a brilliant course to be a part of, you learn from a variety of different people who are all well versed in their respective specialisms and you get the foundational tools to become effective in any area of tech. Your fellow sojis will become your immediate network and you will learn skills and content that will give you the self-confidence to feel you can switch into tech, and anything else your interests take you to beyond that. This course met, and then surpassed my expectations! Very well done to all of the Jolt team on this immersive experience!

Don't even think about, make the SWITCH!

The SWITCH course through Jolt is highly recommended for any individual that wants to make a career change into #Tech. The structure and delivery of the content is well thought out, relevant and taught by industry professionals. I am proud to be a graduate of Jolt and wish my fellow Soji's all the best in their new careers!

Fantastic knowledge from the world of tech

The course was a fantastic insight into the world of tech, which jobs are out there and how my existing skills learned mainly from the world of hospitality would transfer into a brand new sector. Fantastic teachers who are full time tech professionals themselves really helped, and everyone was so enthusiastic. My LinkedIn and CV look unmeasurably better now than when I started the course, and I'm going to feel a lot more confident going into interviews. I'd really recommend this course for anyone wanting to get into tech, or refocus their existing career.
