Bellevue College Launches Software Coding Series Focused on Workforce Development

A new software coding program at Bellevue College aims to build students' tech skills for technology jobs in the software development field. The institution's Continuing Education division partnered with coding education company Coding Dojo to create the new line of accelerated education courses, beginning with a 12-week program in Python development.

The Python Developer Accelerator will teach web development skills and front-end programming with CSS and HTML, as well as front- and back-end programming with the Python programming language, according to a news announcement. Students will build multiple software projects through hybrid online/on-site classes taught by Coding Dojo instructors. They'll also have access to virtual one-on-one meetings with instructors, tutoring and career support resources.   

The college will grow its software programming offerings through additional courses on emerging technologies. It also plans to expand into business-to-business and corporate training programs.

"We are fully invested in the development of our students and their success both inside and outside of the classroom," said Jennifer Sohonie, executive director of Bellevue College Continuing Education, in a statement. "We will continue to bolster our educational courses and work with innovative partners like Coding Dojo to make significant impact on workforce development locally, and across the country."
