Flatiron School Unveils Programs to Support Students Who Need More Day-to-Day Flexibility

Posted by Blair Williamson  /  May 10, 2021

Flatiron School announces a new way to learn with the launch of flexible learning schedules. 

Students at Flatiron School are career changers, often starting a bootcamp program around their already-busy schedule or job. Others want to get in and out as quickly as possible so they can start their new careers. That’s why Flatiron School’s new Live and Flex programs are built with flexibility in mind, allowing students the freedom to choose the schedule that fits their lifestyle.

Flatiron School’s new Live and Flex programs teach the same curriculum and include access to instructors and 1:1 career coaching, but now students have more choices regarding the daily schedule and flexibility. The Live program is considered full-time, and the Flex program offers more flexibility in the daily schedule.
