The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) is the most serious global health threat in decades. So much has changed over the past several weeks and especially in the last few days. Constantly monitoring the situation, we knew we must act fast and we did so, preceding the declared state of emergency in Bulgaria. Thus, on March 10 we transitioned all our trainings from an onsite to a 100% online format at the first signs of what was to come.
We did it because our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our students, partners, applicants, colleagues, and the greater community. We also believe that the uncompromising quality of our education is what defines us. It is our core mission to train tomorrow’s digital builders – kids, university students, young professionals and career switchers.
However, in the interest of safeguarding the health and wellness of our students, we decided to transition all of our career jumpstart and upskill trainings, entrance exams, and events to an online format. In addition, we temporarily cancelled all our Telerik Academy School programs for kids and teenagers in 1-12 grade.
Here are the measures that we took, active since March 10.
Since March 10, all classes have transitioned to a special online form of education. We continue to operate with the highest professionalism and quality. Our top priority is to ensure a positive and fulfilling learning experience for all our students. During this period:
Our students have access to comprehensive online materials for each lecture, prepared by our trainers.
Our trainers are organizing daily Q&A sessions with our students. Thus, ensuring close communication and mentorship that is an integral part of our programs.
We keep the communication open at all-time through private channels in our forum.
Teamwork is an integral part of our learning process. We encourage the students to keep communication between them active through specialized online platforms.
As part of our measures, we temporarily suspended the visitations to our partners’ offices.
For the first time ever we simultaneously have open admissions to all our IT career jumpstart programs and our Upskill Digital Marketing training. We are continuing forward with all open admissions or upcoming programs. If you have already applied or you are in the process, you must know that:
We are not making any changes in our open admissions in terms of timeline.
Depending on the development of the situation, we will transition the entrance exams, career events, and our free programming fundamentals courses to online formats.
Our team is hard at work to secure our admissions run smoothly and seamlessly just as our trainings do, mitigating any possible disruptions caused by the external situation.
These efforts will continue for the foreseeable future until further notice. We understand these are challenging times. We want you and your families to be healthy and safe. Thank you for your patience and your resilience!
Every one at Telerik Academy hopes that the coronavirus outbreak will soon be over.
Until then, you can use the time at home to gain as many positives from it as you can. Utilize the time that you’re not stuck in traffic, for example, to learn a new skill that will help you kickstart a new career or enhance your skillset.
You can take advantage of our free programming fundamentals courses that are available online. Check if programming is for you and finally make this long overdue step towards your dream career in IT.
