Part-Time Study. Pathway To A $60k+ Job

Switch-Up Course Details

Over 18 weeks, we prepare you to start in paid work with one of our amazing employers. First you’ll work on you, defining your new identity, gaining valuable people and presentation skills, while developing the mindset of a technologist, gaining perspective on how tech works and how you can contribute in tech.

From there your specialisation deepens as you learn how to develop solutions that meet defined customer needs. By 32 weeks, you’ll be a well-formed, well-balanced practitioner, on a path of continual growth.

Tech is great! I used to be really scared about it but through Rea I realised there is a place for me in it!
