Program roadmap

The whole bootcamp will last for 6 weeks with on-site classes every Saturday at WeCreate where a mentor will engage with the participants to teach them specific skills. Homework will be given to the students which they can complete and submit online in their own time.

The first week is all about setting the tone for the class. You, along with other participants, will gather for a ‘meet & greet’. Think of it as a crash course in computer shortcuts, text editors, computer tricks and more to get you ready for day one!
The second week will focus on the basics of HTML & CSS – what it means, what it is and you’ll start writing your very own HTML & CSS starting on day one. Then, we will teach you how to build your own website with WordPress!
The third week will take you through the basics of digital design and will help you learn simple tools that you can use and apply right away in your own projects, personally or professionally. There is where you will get a deep dive into Photoshop!
The fourth week will explore the vast world of social media and explore how we can use search engines and social media platforms for marketing.
The fourth week will explore the vast world of social media and explore how we can use search engines and social media platforms for marketing.
