Launch of code213, the first Algerian school devoted to the web professions
Algerian companies have very strong needs in recruiting digital-trained employees. At the same time, many talented Algerians are struggling to find a job in line with their aspirations in a context of rapid market changes.
With this in mind, code213, in partnership with Simplon.co, has decided to launch a training offer for the digital professions in Algiers from the start of the 2018 school year. Code213 aims to become the first school of web trades on the African continent. It aims to train experts on digital issues, able to contribute to the transition of the Algerian economy to a digital economy.
code213 offers courses of 3 to 6 months very ingrained in practice (6 months internship, close collaboration with companies, professional situations). The code213 innovative pedagogy, “powered by” Simplon, is based on “learning by doing” and “peer programming”, a participative operation that allows students to unleash their creativity through project-based learning.
code213 finally has a social ambition. We want to make digital a real lever of inclusion and reveal talents among audiences not well represented in the sector. In addition to the full-time courses that will lead to a diploma, code213 will offer introductory code sessions for children, as well as programs reserved primarily for women.
Due to the quality of the training, code213 will be able to guarantee a 6-month internship at one of the partner companies in Algeria or abroad. The best candidates will also be able to finance their tuition fees to allow the integration of everyone, regardless of their financial means, on the sole basis of his merit.
Registrations will be made online, on the school’s website (www.code213.tech), until September 27, 2018, for a pre-start scheduled for mid-October. The first group information meeting to answer the questions of the candidates will be organized on July 1st at 10:00 in El Biar (more information on the school website).
code213 has received support from several organizations in Algeria and internationally, including the Algiers Wilaya and the World Bank Group.
code213 is a school dedicated to web professions that offers a wide range of training, from application development to web marketing. Based in Algiers, code213 offers short courses of 6 months followed by 6 months of internship to ensure the employability of its students.
Simplon is a network of digital factories with more than 40 training sites in the world labeled by the “Grande Ecole du numérique”. Since its creation, Simplon has trained more than 2,200 students. Simplon’s experience in teaching expertise and its strong network of partner companies will put code213 at the level of the best international standards in terms of inclusive training in the web trades.
