In this time of uncertainty, it is our priority - as it’s always been - to provide the best possible educational experience in an environment that is both collaborative and safe. In the last year, we’ve recognized that with the evolving global situation, this is a challenging time for everyone. As an educational institute, we’re constantly following the recommendations of public health experts and direction from the various government authorities in each of our locations.
To ensure the safety of our students and staff, we have implemented measures in each of our locations to be able to provide a safe learning environment. As a result, we have categorized our campuses into three different stages:
1) Stage 1 || Classes: Remote || Campus: Closed :
In the countries that are still heavily affected by COVID-19, we are keeping a fully remote learning environment to ensure the safety of our students and staff. During this stage, the doors of our campus will remain closed and classes will be held 100% remote.
2) Stage 2 || Classes: Remote || Campus: Open
In countries where the situation has started to recover, educational institutions have slowly started to open their doors and students who are in need of a more dedicated learning environment can come back to our campus. However, classes are still being offered in our remote learning environment.
3) Stage 3 || Classes: In person || Campus: Open
In countries where the situation has reached a “new normal”, meaning cases are not increasing and the government is allowing institutions to return to their physical locations, we have reopened our campus and returned to an in-person classroom experience.
* In any of these stages classes will be held at their regular scheduled dates and times.
In every city, we are closely monitoring the status of COVID-19 and strictly applying recommendations from the World Health Organisation, governments and public health authorities. For more info on a specific course, please choose your city and get in touch with the local team.
Our instructional team has worked tirelessly to provide you our remote learning environment. They have applied the best practices from our classroom teaching approach, combined those with industry-leading remote education tools and developed the remote program with the following focus:
Since 2013, Ironhack has focused on our mission to help people transform their careers and join a thriving community of technology professionals who love what they do. This enduring mission guides us as we closely monitor, assess, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will continue to keep the Ironhack community updated on any changes as information becomes available.
Most importantly, stay safe!
A. The pandemic is a challenge for all sectors but at Ironhack we have been able to successfully move our classes to an instructor-led remote learning format which allows us to continue both with our ongoing classes as well as future ones. Under no circumstances are courses going to be cancelled, but there might be small modifications to them. If any of this applies to the course that you are enrolled in, our Admissions team will contact you as soon as the modifications are made.
A. The safety and health of our students and staff are our highest priority. This is why we are closely monitoring the recommendations of public health experts and government authorities. We will resume on-site courses as soon as we are advised to do so.
Once we are able to resume on-site courses, we will continue offering remote learning to all those students who are unable to come to class or because of health reasons, prefer to stay home. We will keep the core of the classroom via Zoom until everyone is able to attend classes in-person and on-site.
A. Our Career Services are made for the students to achieve several milestones during the duration of the bootcamp. The milestones during the first 9 weeks (or 24 for Part timers) are
completed through a self guided program called Careerhack, which helps you create your Resume/CV, LinkedIn and GitHub/Portfolio.
After the 9 week period (24 week for Part times), you’ll move onto our Career Week. If we have to continue instructor-led remote learning, our career weeks will be remote as well. The workshops during this week are transitioned to our remote learning space. After Career Week, our Career Services team will keep having touch-points with you, in order to understand your progress on the job search, share relevant information like events or job offers and to organize talks with our alumni in order to increase market knowledge.
To attend remote classes you will need:
A. With our remote learning, classes are always recorded, which gives you the option to review them in case you get sick. If the illness is serious and requires you to miss a long period of time, we will give the option to transition to a later edition of the course, without any costs added.
A. We understand we are living in extraordinary circumstances and will try to help those of you in need to the best of our possibilities. All changes will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. If there are any issues with your payment, we advise you to get in touch with your campus admissions manager.
Unlike any other online course, our instructor-led classes consist of live virtual classrooms where lead teachers, TAs and students all interact together. Just like any other Ironhack course, you can raise your hand and ask questions, collaborate in breakout rooms and review the classes with our recorded sessions. Teaching Assistants will be available during all the learning sessions and also during open office hours to support you on your journey.
