The Reboot01 Coding Institute, in partnership with the Labour Fund (Tamkeen) and Economic Development Board (EDB), has launched a two-year programme aimed at enrolling approximately 100 Bahrainis in its first cohort.
With over 20 campuses worldwide, the institute aims to enable individuals to enter the world of technology, regardless of their educational or professional backgrounds, through an innovative-based approach using the 01 Edu global network, a French educational platform, of coding schools.
Graduates of the programme will become full stack developers, with access to a wide range of industries, particularly the tech industry, allowing them to join leading companies at a more senior level. Yanal Jallad, Managing Director of Reboot01 Coding Institute, said they are the first coding school of its kind in Bahrain.
“The second selection pool will commence in early May after Eid to enroll 100 more Bahrainis and form the first cohort of 200 students,” he added. Ali Hasan, Executive Director of Programs and Partnership Development at the Labour Fund (Tamkeen) said the programme offers a unique upskilling opportunity by providing world-class training.
Munther Al-Mudawi, Executive Director – Business Development at Bahrain EDB, said that the digital upskilling and reskilling of the workforce is imperative for our economy to be able to effectively compete on a global scale, all while achieving sustainable growth in the long-term.
