OVERVIEW

Aligning opportunity with outcomes.

The Ellae Tech Academy’s rigorous 12-week coding bootcamp program is designed to create opportunities for passionate and motivated students who otherwise couldn’t afford to enroll, access to outcome-oriented education. 

NO UPFRONT TUITION

Open only to students without full time jobs or earning less than ₦1 million annually, the Ellae Tech Academy is a deferred tuition coding bootcamp that requires no upfront deposit or tuition payment.

CURATED COMMUNITY

Our software development classes are carefully crafted to bring the best out of students. You’ll learn alongside other talented students who’ll challenge your approach and give you a competitive edge. 

INDUSTRY-ALIGNED CURRICULUM

Our 12-week modular program is the most robust you’ll find, giving students the skills needed to go from software development amateurs to software development experts.

INVESTED INSTRUCTORS

Knowing how to code doesn’t mean you know how to teach. With experience in the field and the classroom, our instructors are unparalleled. Our students are guaranteed to learn from the best.

CURRICULUM

Become an in-demand software engineer

Being a software developer requires more than knowing how to code or build a web app. Utilizing the proven curriculum and 12-week modular program structure in use by world-class code academies, students learn to think, and build, like software engineers – from developing coding mastery to gaining an understanding of how products are designed and managed.

PROGRAMMING FUNDAMENTALS

After diving into HTML5 & CSS, students get comfortable with object-oriented programming, learning to read websites with Ruby and save data to a database with SQL and Object Relational Mappers.

WEB FRAMEWORKS

Students learn two key Ruby frameworks, first mastering the fundamentals of web programming with Sinatra before experiencing how quickly they can build incredible apps with Rails.

JAVASCRIPT

Students gain a thorough understanding of JavaScript and functional programming — crucial for front-end devs — and start to build their own version of React before moving onto the framework itself.

FRONT-END FRAMEWORKS

Students learn to build productive, scalable front-ends with React and Redux, creating slick, functional, reactive code with Redux as a state manager and Rails as the back-end JSON API.

PROJECTS

Build your portfolio

At Access Labs Initiative, students don’t just ship code; they become developers. Students build advanced Portfolio Projects to demonstrate their technical skills and creativity and immerse themselves in the technical community by maintaining technical blogs, establishing robust Github repositories, and presenting at Meetups.

CAREER SERVICES

Gain a skill. Get a job.

Learn the in-demand skills necessary to become a sure-fire tech hire. The seasoned Career Services team behind the Ellae Tech Academy’s student success stories is dedicated to helping our students launch lifelong careers in tech.
