The BeCode Web Development training is 100% free and open to anyone motivated and ready to change their life. It’s perfectly okay if you’ve never written a line of code in your life, we start from scratch! All you need is logical thinking, a curious mind, a strong dose of motivation, eagerness to learn and an understanding of the language that is spoken in the region where you want to follow the training. Diplomas, money, age, experience, hair color, religion… We don’t care about that. Do you? You only have to be registered as a job seeker.

FAQ

Can I work and study at the same time at BeCode?

Classes take place from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 5 pm. Given the intensity of our programme, it is therefore not feasible to combine a training course at BeCode with a job. 

Do you also offer an evening course on an online course?

Not at the moment, but Bruxelles Formation and Le Forem do offer a series of online courses within IT. 

In which language is the BeCode training given?
Our web development training is given in French or Dutch, but a good spoken and written knowledge of English is recommended as most programming languages rely on it.

Tip: From now on, watch your TV shows and films with English subtitles.

How much does a training at BeCode cost?

At BeCode we do like to invest in your future! The training costs are fully covered by BeCode’s partners and sponsors so you don’t have to pay any tuition fee.

You will learn tech skills

You will discover all aspects of website and mobile app development. The training focuses both on frontend” and backend”. Frontend consists of the visual elements that appear on your screen, what the website or app looks like. Backend is the internal structure of a website or app, what you see when you edit the platform. 

… And also soft skills

Businesses are looking to hire resourceful team players who are able to learn, keep up with technology and solve problems in a creative and clever way. That is why first and foremost at BeCode, you will learn how to learn, how to work as a team, how to manage a project and how to see opportunities in every problem.

They did it already

“BeCode guided me to find my way in web development, to open up to working in a group and most importantly, be good at googling. I knew absolutely nothing before I started. Now I am part of an IT team in a software company.”

Marianna, Antwerp 2019

I started the AI Data Science training one year ago, offering me a breath of fresh air and career opportunities. One year later, I would like to thank you for this terrific experience. I only keep positive memories of my time at BeCode : a new skillset, amazing new encounters and above all a reinforced self-esteem.
