Welcome to our one-month orientation course – an introduction to the digital skills & careers of tomorrow.

We want you to pick the digital skill & career that suits you best, before making a commitment to a 3-12 month bootcamp course.
Part 1
Jobs of the future
Get excited as we look into the jobs of the future, the skills they require and the vast possibilities that stretch ahead of you. A hands-on introduction to Web Development, App Development & Software Engineering so you can learn the fundamentals and the tools that make websites & apps work.
Part 2
Working in tech
Discover what it's like to work in a digital job with an online visit to some of Germany's largest digital companies & startups. Afterwards, dive into the many channels of online marketing and learn basic marketing skills and tools with practical exercises.
Part 3
Digital skills bootcamps
Switch on a different side of your brain with an introduction to UX/UI and design. Learn the fundamental principles and processes involved in the development of apps & websites - from concept to delivery. We map out all the training options & voucher funded bootcamps that exist in Germany for your next step towards a new career. Meet them first hand, ask questions and learn how their bootcamp differs to the others.
Part 4
The next step
Our time together may be coming to an end, but your tech career is just beginning. In this stage, you’ll learn all about the tools and skills that make data analysts so valuable, and even get a chance to try them out by presenting your own data analysis. Additionally, we will cover introductions to pivotal areas such as cybersecurity and cloud computing. While the next stage of your career might seem daunting, we’ll teach you a range of soft skills and offer advice on the best training pathway for you so that you can step away from StartSteps and head in the direction of your dream job.
