The CodeMasters program

Accenture and New Dutch Connections are organizing a new CodeMasters program for beginners. Together we offer this opportunity to refugees with a background in, or passion for programming. The CodeMasters Python course will be given at a location in Amsterdam and will start on the 23th of March. Be quick to subscribe, only a limited number of candidates will be able to participate! The deadline to sign up is the 20th of March.

During this program you will learn how to program with Python in 10 weeks. Classes will take place every week and the working language will be English. Knowledge of Python or another programming language is not necessary, but a strong interest in the field is preferred. These classes are for beginners.

In addition, you will receive guidance on your professional aspirations and share network and experiences through a buddy program. Aside from sharing their knowledge, skills, and professional network, your buddy can also provide personal advice on working in the Netherlands. At the same time, the buddy can of course also learn a lot from you. This program helps you get closer to job possibilities, but there is no guarantee.  In the end of the courses the participants will be the protagonists in a presentation and festival organized for them and the audience. The candidates will then have the opportunity to present what they learned and experienced during the program and furthermore highlight their hopes for future steps.

This program is not only a mean to gain knowledge but also to find out new possibilities to make your dreams reality!!!
