During 2016-2017 academic year, over 2000 students in 1-12 grade took part in our free programming and digital skills trainings for students. With total of 36 cohorts in 11 towns across the country, nearly three-quarters of all participants, aged 7-12, made their first steps in the world of technologies.
Bulgarian participants in the International Olympiad in Informatics in Tehran won one gold and three bronze medals. We are proud that two of the champions are Telerik Academy School students.
Almost all of Telerik Academy graduates (98%) successfully start a career in the IT industry. More than half of them (58%) receive remunerations higher than the ones in the software industry and for 80% their salaries are higher than the average for the country.
97% of the Telerik Academy Alpha graduates today live and work in Bulgaria. Nearly 70% start working in IT in less than 2 months from their studies’ end, followed soon after by the rest. Almost all are very happy with their current living standard.
"I see Telerik Academy as an inseparable part of the ecosystem. If I go back to Telerik, our company couldn’t have expanded so dynamically and achieved such results, if we didn’t have the opportunity to grow in a predictable and planned way, with talent that entered the organization right when we wanted it. There is no other existing organization on the market that can give such a controlled inflow of talent," Telerik Academy Co-founder Boyko Iaramov.
In the end of 2016, Telerik Academy – one of the leading tech-ed organizations in Bulgaria – was spun off from Progress as an independent organization led by the four founders – Svetozar Georgiev, Boyko Iaramov, Vassil Terziev and Hristo Kosev. In an interview for “Dnevnik” they talk about their plans for the Academy.
The record breaking 14 medals that Bulgaria won at the last International Informatics Competition in Shumen were just one aspect of the good news for Telerik co—founder Boyko Iaramov. He contributed significantly to the ranking of 4th and 5th graders at the leading 8 positions: they all are trainees of the Telerik Kids Academy.
