Why Partner with Flatiron School?

Flatiron School’s programs are centered on high-quality curriculum, learning experiences, and outcomes. 

While other tech educators scramble to acquire as many learners as possible—diluting themselves in the process with many different programs or by chasing the next great marketing statistic—Flatiron School is laser-focused on delivering the best education possible across four core disciplines:

We set and maintain the highest standards when it comes to teaching relevant skills, learner outcomes, and client satisfaction.

Do Flatiron School Instructors Have Industry Experience?

Our instructors have hands-on experience in their respective fields. Our solutions engineers and curriculum developers have decades of combined experience and diverse backgrounds in industry, academia, and the military. 

Together, our instructors, solutions engineers, and curriculum developers keep our programs fresh by developing content that corresponds to active job descriptions—as well as seeking feedback from hiring managers.

How Does Flatiron School Prioritize Diversity?

Over the past decade, we’ve trained over 10,000 diverse learners from all walks of life. We have a history of working to diversify the tech industry through scholarships for underrepresented groups, such as women, persons of color, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and low-income households.

Flatiron School also makes tremendous efforts to remove biases from the recruiting process, ensuring talent is evaluated solely on their abilities and propensity to succeed. 

How Do You Address Bootcamp Stereotypes?

Bootcamps sometimes garner a negative reputation because they’re not overly transparent with their data. For example, competitors may say they have a 100% placement rate, but that placement rate could include grads who received unpaid internships. Flatiron School goes the extra mile to be transparent. We were the first in the tech education industry to publicly publish a jobs report, which is reviewed for accuracy by a neutral third party.

Why Should We Use Flatiron School to Train Our Employees?

Our core expertise is in helping organizations deeply understand tech talent and strategically invest in the “hire to retire” lifecycle. 

With curriculum covering a variety of languages, frameworks, and libraries across Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, Cybersecurity, Data Science, and UX / UI Product Design and the flexibility to train when, where, and how you want – including with or without instructor-led training – our programs are tailored to meet your business-specific training needs.

What Are The Benefits Of Instructor-Led Training?

When you choose an instructor-led training program, as opposed to conducting the training internally, you’re getting our instructors’ expertise, experience, and accumulated knowledge base on how best to teach their material. Other tangible benefits include:

  • Ability to adapt programs to learners’ style and progress – everyone learns differently. When instructors have the flexibility to tailor programs to learning styles, existing knowledge, and progress, they typically see a higher aptitude for success. 
  • Real-time interaction with instructors – When learners have the opportunity to ask questions and receive personalized help, it fosters accelerated learning and enhances knowledge retention.
  • Peer learning – Collaborative learning opens the door for new perspectives and an overall dynamic learning environment. It also promotes professional growth and networking opportunities.
  • Increased learner engagement – Learners with a structure such as regular assignments, group activities, and milestones stay motivated and accountable, ultimately resulting in higher engagement and success rates. 
  • Flexible schedules – Programs have higher levels of engagement when hosted at convenient times, allowing learners to be free of any commitments and distractions.
