To promise placement following the courses, ARDC offers CV, Linkedin, and job search workshops, as well as interview simulations and ongoing consultations and support in the job hunting process. Language classes and additional tutoring are also offered to coding students who require it.
To date, ARDC has helped about 35 refugees complete a coding course. So far, a total of 11 refugees have been assisted in finding work or internships in various tech companies including ReWire, Minute.ly, Real Time, Utest,Sales4Tech, Rural Senses, and Developers Institute.
By the end of 2021, our placement rates stood at over 50%. We are now launching a career guidance project, with the aim of increasing our placement rates and increasing the number of female participants. We are engaging industry specialists, including recruiters and developers who assist refugees in the process of applying for jobs and preparing for interviews.
Additionally, we match graduates with work and internship opportunities through hiring partners and freelance projects in web development, app development, and QA which our graduates take on to gain experience until they can find work independently.
With the right support, we know that our graduates can fulfill their dreams and build their careers.
