During 2016-2017 academic year, over 2000 students in 1-12 grade took part in our free programming and digital skills trainings for students.

There is more behind the avalanche-kind of success than just a good business model and a few smart ideas. You feel this the moment you enter the company's headquarters in Sofia's "Mladost" suburb.

In Bulgaria, where demand for qualified IT specialists is now outstripping the available supply, Telerik promotes itself as the only company in the country that offers free training courses. In 2009, it set up an academy for software engineers. So far 510 have enrolled — though not all stay the course — and the annual intake is rising. This year about 1,000 started the program, of whom Telerik plans to hire about 150.
The ability to think beyond the three options and see a fourth is the source of all competitive advantage. For example, software companies all share the same global strategic headache: recruiting capable programmers. Most employers looking to hire capable programmers consider three obvious options: pay more, outsource to third-party developers, or slow down development. Telerik considered these options but instead decided to go for a fourth option–they created Telerik Academy.
