Success

Our students' and partners' successes are what drive our inspiration and motivation to keep doing what we already love.

Hear it like it is

I’d need at least 1-2 years at university to master the theory taught there and gain some minimal practical skills needed to land a job in IT. Telerik Academy, on the other hand, helped me jumpstart my career and become financially independent in just a few months.

It is when I started looking for a job that I realized how solid and in-depth Telerik Academy’s education is, and how highly the IT industry values it.

Telerik Academy became the ultimate cornerstone to my dream job in software engineering. I had no previous experience in programming but the training I obtained at the Academy, equipped me with everything needed to kick-start my IT career.

The time and effort I put into Telerik Academy are among my best investments so far. There is no other tech-ed organization in Bulgaria like the Academy. These are not only my words. I know a lot of expats who came back to Bulgaria and people who quit their jobs or put their university studies on hold to be able to fully dedicate themselves to Telerik Academy.

Telerik Academy provides the perfect mix of theory and practice. The plethora of hands-on projects you work on throughout the program, is what makes the Academy stand out from other tech-ed organizations.

Telerik Academy changed my life. At the age of 20, I was already independent and working my dream job! Without the knowledge and experience I gained at Telerik Academy, I wouldn’t have had such a flying start.

The Telerik Academy Team invested time, effort and individual attention in me throughout the entire program. In addition to the tech training, crafting a killer CV, learning different interview practices and building grit and an open mindset are just a few of the value-added trainings that made me stand out from other candidates.

The program is entirely focused on building practical skills. We were given many team projects mirroring real-work environment. The trainers acted as our mentors and thanks to the small size of the group – they were able to carefully monitor the performance of each student and provide tailored assistance.

It was only thanks to Telerik Academy that I was able to switch careers and land an IT job. The Alpha program is neither too long, nor too short and allows you to focus entirely on the training, quickly gain knowledge and start your career.

From day one at Telerik Academy Alpha I knew I’ve had made the right choice. The trainers are 100% dedicated to providing students with the best possible education and preparing them to meet and exceed the expectations of their future employers. The Academy also partners with many successful companies which are an excellent employer for every graduate.

Participating in Telerik Academy Alpha was a great investment. It not only helped me attain the knowledge and experience needed to start a career, but it also taught me how to continuously expand my skillset and develop a broader plan for my future in IT.

Telerik Academy is creating a society of life-long learners. It teaches a mindset that is not only of great help when solving complex problems, but also serves as a wonderful motivator to constantly be hunting for and adopting new skills and information.

"After 10 years of scrutinizing and perfecting its craft it’s no wonder Telerik Academy is the leader in technical education. Around 15% of our employees are Telerik Academy alumni. They have both the tech skills needed and the attitude of life-long learners. Most importantly, they get up to speed much faster than most junior developers – in some cases within the first few days”.
