Alamo Colleges Nets $2 Million Grant for IT Job Training

 The Alamo Colleges District has been awarded a $2 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to partner with local tech firm Codeup to train unemployed and underemployed residents for high-demand, high-wage mid-level information technology jobs. The grant will fund $3,500 scholarships that will help cover the cost of the 18-week Codeup Full-Stack program for qualified participants. Qualified participants must be: reside within the Alamo Colleges District service area (Atascosa, Bandera, Bexar, Comal, Guadalupe, Kendall, Kerr and Wilson counties); be unemployed or underemployed (part-time and contractors count as underemployed); and not be currently enrolled in a public education agency.

“We are pleased to partner with Codeup to offer this training in one of the most desirable career fields in our area,” said Alamo Colleges Chancellor Dr. Bruce Leslie. “The awarding of this generous grant from the U.S. Department of Labor is a reflection of Alamo Colleges’ outstanding track record in workforce training,” he added.

Codeup is a full-stack, career-focused coding bootcamp located in San Antonio, Texas. Founded in 2013, Codeup's mission is to help students launch a career in software development. Following an 18 week course, students present a final capstone project to employer partners. The Codeup Difference is rooted in the full time, in-person, and project-based curriculum molded to fit employer's needs. In addition, Codeup holds a job promise: get hired in six months or receive half tuition back. Each cohort enrolls over 20 students, with one cohort graduating in May 2018.
