Become a Web Developer with Wild Code School Berlin for free, with a Bildungsgutschein!

Our 5-month course for Full Stack Web Development is certified in Berlin! 

If you are registered as unemployed and looking to start a new career in Web Development, you might be able to do that without personal financial investment.

What’s Bildungsgutschein?

A Bildungsgutschein is an Education Voucher issued by the Agentur für Arbeit. The aim of the Bildungsgutschein is to train people with new skills in order to find a new career path or job. If you're unemployed (or soon to be), you may be eligible to receive one. Once you’re issued with the voucher, you’ll need to take the course within the timeframe specified by the Agentur für Arbeit.

How does the process look like?

  1. Submit an application to our Full Time Web Development training.
  2. If accepted to the program, consult with your local Agentur für Arbeit (Jobcenter) and express your interest in our course.
  3. Take our Info Pack with you when you visit the Agentur für Arbeit (Jobcenter)
  4. Once approved by the Jobcenter, mail or bring in your Bildungsgutschein to Wild Code School for our signature and stamp.
  5. Return your signed and stamped Bildungsgutschein and the signed student agreement to your contact at the Jobcenter.

How can I finance the training?

Training is an investment of time as well as a financial investment. At Wild Code School, we have sought out to optimise the time spent in training and its cost in order to make our training more accessible. It won't b easy for you to find a better quality/price ratio!

By way of comparison, a 5-year course in a traditional digital school costs an average of £45K (~£9k per year). However, students graduating from such training would have virtually the same salaries as Wilders after less than a year of training.

Our students generally reimburse their training in a maximum of one year: the average salary of a junior developer in the UK is £25-35k gross annual. This is the salary that our students are entitled to after their training at Wild Code School.

We have put several payment methods in place to best suit your situation. For example, students who pay up-front benefit from a 5% or 10% discount.

Alternatively, it is possible to spread the payment of training fees over 3 installments.

How to get finance from a bank?

Most banks are aware of how innovative training courses such as Wild Code School work and are generally ready to support candidates in their educational initiatives.

Our students have been able to benefit from personal loans, consumer loans or even micro-credits. The cost of living can also be covered by the loan, in addition to the cost of training. Interest rates are generally between 2 and 4% and our students have often been able to benefit from a deferred refund (the refund starts once the training is completed and the job is found: ~1 year after the start of the training). 

One thing is certain: targeting a digital business in high demand reassures banks about your ability to repay.
