February 1, 2020, Manhattan Beach, CA: BeachCoders Announces Partnership with Microsoft LEAP for Paid Tech Apprenticeships
BeachCoders® Academy, a local web development ‘coding boot camp’ in Manhattan Beach, CA has secured a partnership with global tech giant Microsoft to facilitate paid apprenticeships for bootcamp grads.
BeachCoders® has partnered with an anchor of the tech world, Microsoft to enroll students into their new apprenticeship program, LEAP.
LEAP Engineering Acceleration Program (LEAP) is an immersive, 16-week program providing real-world experience through development and project management apprenticeships. They’re seeking a diversity of participants with unique perspectives, who may have a non-traditional background or returning from time away from the workplace. The program combines traditional classroom learning with hands-on projects.
“We are honored to have our institution included in this highly sought after program”, said founder and director of BeachCoders® Academy James DeCicco. “The LEAP program is a straightforward pathway to a rewarding career in tech. Students with coding Bootcamp experience, once admitted into the program, will be enrolled in a paid apprenticeship right on the Microsoft campus and have the opportunity to a full-time position once completed”, said DeCicco.
BeachCoders® Academy was founded in 2015 with a mission to serve the South Bay with part-time, professional level tech training in a small class environment. BeachCoders® tuition is also a fraction of the cost compared to other schools offering similar courses.
The school has garnered high praise from LA City Councilman Joe Buscaino, California State Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi and a top achievement award from the South Bay Workforce Investment Board. Most importantly, the students and grads continue to share their positive support for the quality of education they’ve received from BeachCoders®.
