Life at BeCode VZW
About BeCode VZW
The people at BeCode fight tooth and nails every day to help motivated people change their life by entering a career as digital developer. It is a completely free training. BeCode is financed by private companies and (some) public funding.
At BeCode, the coach is a Sherpa, a guide who provides a safe environment for their learners to fail (and thus learn), and build self confidence. An environment in which the group becomes a family as mutual help and kindness are key ingredients of the pedagogy.
As a sherpa, the coach knows shortcuts to lead the whole group – not just those who have it easy – onto the other side of the “learn coding” mountain safe, where a bright career in the digital world awaits the junior. The only way forward is to help each other, as the coach does not give new briefings before everyone finishes the current one.
