The secret is out - it’s time to announce our next Ironhack US campus!
Since the early beginnings of Ironhack, our goal has been to be one of the most student success driven tech bootcamps at scale. Every decision we’ve made thus far has been with the student experience in mind.
As we expand our presence further to continue changing lives and helping people build a fulfilling career in tech, we felt it was the right time to open a new campus in the US. Choosing our second US campus was no easy feat. After months of research, location sourcing, and making sure our next location has the best environment for our students, we’re happy to announce that Ironhack will be opening in Tampa,FL.
We chose Tampa, FL as our next location because it’s one of the top emerging tech cities! The city is responsible for more than 25% of Florida's tech jobs and over 50 software and IT companies call Tampa home. According to the Tampa Bay Business Journal, more than 2,000 new tech jobs are expected this year making Tampa the place to start a career in tech!
Not to mention that Tampa is a multicultural city with coastal views, great weather, big city life with small town charm, a passion for tech, and a thriving job market. It’s an environment that’s prime for developing a new career, networking, and achieving goals!
To make sure that every student who enrolls in Ironhack Tampa has the freedom to learn from any location, we’re also introducing our Hybrid Campus Model. This means you can take Ironhack’s Remote-Live courses while having a dedicated hub to collaborate in a co-working space multiple times throughout the cohort.
We partnered with DeskPass to give our students the flexibility of enjoying co-working spaces throughout Tampa to study, meet up with classmates and teacher assistants, grow your network, or simply grab a beer and have fun at our events. All while taking our remote-live online bootcamps from wherever you want. We've come up with this novel concept to support you with a community and give you the flexibility you need to fit your learning style.
But the fun doesn’t end there! To celebrate the opening of Ironhack Tampa we’ve also partnered with our financing partner, Climb Credit to to give away $1,000 scholarships. This is the first of many scholarship contests that will be available throughout the year! In total, over 20 students in 2022 will win tuition assistance through various Climb + Ironhack scholarships. Keep an eye out for more opportunities!
