Nucamp, a leading provider of top rated and affordable coding bootcamps nationwide, announced it is extending the reach of its comprehensive online coding curriculum to companies and their workforces with the launch of Nucamp for Business. Nucamp’s unique technology training model allows workers to take classes at their own pace, making workforce education and employee upskilling more efficient and less disruptive for businesses. Built with support from ETF@JFFLabs, the first and highest-impact venture fund focused exclusively on workforce development and the future of work, Nucamp has enhanced its infrastructure, facilitated employee training enrollment, and streamlined the payment process for employers to create a turnkey workforce training program for technology curriculum.
Since 2017, Nucamp’s mission has been to make coding education affordable and accessible to everyone, with its initial focus on career shifters left out of the digital economy. By authoring its own curriculum based on the most in-demand technologies employers seek and developing a system to deliver the classroom experience with a dedicated instructor at scale, Nucamp has been able to fulfill its promise of providing high-quality coding education at an affordable price to consumers, an accomplishment reflected by its rapid growth.
Now, with Nucamp for Business, companies can gain access to Nucamp’s high-quality, cost-effective education for their employees without the added expense of maintaining an in-house training department. Nucamp provides the expertise, infrastructure, convenience, and up-to-date content, so companies can allocate resources to running their business and focus on supporting their clients. Plus, organizations with a qualified educational assistance program are eligible for a federal tax deduction of $5,250 per year per employee. Considering the price points for any one of Nucamp’s bootcamps, this means eligible companies can effectively train their employees tax free. For other employers that want to take advantage of this, Nucamp has also created a guide to make those requirements that much easier to understand and satisfy.
As the demand for technical knowledge increases, organizations that recognize IT skills as a business imperative and invest in coding education for their employees are more likely to realize returns, such as increased revenue and lower turnover costs, with the higher-performing workforce great tech training facilitates. The advantages are abundant across many job types and industries. Technical knowledge improves collaboration between IT staff and non-engineers such as product managers, technical writers, and QA testers. Sales teams can field more technical questions without consulting a developer. Marketers can improve SEO and deploy design changes to websites. Customer support can resolve more requests without calling an often-backlogged engineering team. Employee training helps attract, develop and retain high-quality talent – reducing the need to hire expensive, short-term contractors who leave a knowledge gap when their contract ends. Doubling down on training and upskilling also supports recruiting efforts, as internal mobility allows HR managers to fill open roles across the entire organization with less dependence on outside hiring. What’s more, investing in professional development results in higher employee satisfaction because workers feel more valued.
“If you want to make education accessible, you have to make it affordable. Nucamp is living proof that quality education doesn’t have to be expensive, and we aim to bring our accessible model to businesses keen on upskilling their workforce to stay relevant,” said Ludovic Fourrage, Founder and CEO of Nucamp. “This launch in partnership with Jobs for the Future is a testament to Nucamp’s current success and the opportunity ahead.”
