The Flatiron School trains highly motivated webapplication development best praces in Ruby, Rails, JS, ObjectOriented DesignTestDriven Development and more (check out our curriculum) a relentless focus on teamwork.
Select employers are invited to come to the school and see what the students have been working on over the course of the semester. This will be a great chance to get to know the students, and get a detailed look at what they've accomplished (including demos of apps they've built, etc...).
In exchange for direct access to this event, The Flatiron School expect that employers interested in hiring our students pay a hiring commission equivalent to 20% of student's first year salary (placement fee terms & conditions) . We've decided to structure our program in this way for two reasons-
- Charging employers a placement fee allows us to keep tuition as low as possible, so that we can attract the best possible talent to our program.
- Education today is too expensive and not focused on real results. By basing our revenue model on job placement, we are aligning our interests with those of our students. Simply put, if we're not successful in training them for jobs, we shouldn't be financially successful either.
Each of the 20 students at The Flatiron School was individually selected out of a pool of . Students were selected based on 3 key factors-
- Cultural Fit
- Demonstrated passion for a career in web development.
