State College of Florida and Flatiron School Team Up to Offer Software Engineering Bootcamps

Flatiron School, a global higher-education institution that trains students in 21st-century skills with courses in software engineering, data science, cybersecurity, and product design, has announced it has partnered with State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota and its Coding Academy to launch several 24-week software engineering bootcamps for SCF students starting in early 2022.

Flatiron School will develop the curriculum and select the instructors from its faculty for the in-person bootcamps, while SCF will oversee student enrollment and career coaching, the two organizations said in a news release.

“This is an exciting partnership that has the potential to change lives in a very profound way,” Flatiron School CEO Kate Cassino said in the announcement. “Whether you’re trying to re-skill into another career or up-skill to expand your current career path, these bootcamps are an attractive option for those looking to break into tech.”

“We chose Flatiron School for these programs because of the proven success of its curriculum in training students from diverse backgrounds; you can succeed with Flatiron School’s curriculum even if you do not have experience in the computer sciences,” said State College of Florida Executive Vice President Todd G. Fritch. 

Students will learn the basics of front- and back-end web development and programming, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Rails, React, and Ruby, giving them the skills required for entry-level jobs as back-end developers, full-stack engineers, and front-end engineers, among other software engineering roles. 

SCF — the region’s first and largest public state college, with 11,000 students at campuses in Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Venice, and online courses — is the newest addition to Flatiron School’s list of partners using its curriculum and instructional delivery.
