“Unfortunately, some people believe that soft skills aren’t that important. However, almost every employer I’ve ever talked to about this disagrees. In a world where job roles are changing rapidly, soft skills will be one of the few constants”

“…resilience, respect, enthusiasm, and creativity [are] just as important as academic or technical skills. In an ever more competitive jobs market, it is such qualities that will give our young talent a head start and also allow existing employees to progress to higher skilled, better paid roles.”

Any questions?

What are the Re:Coded short courses?

The Re:Coded short courses are self-paced short courses (20 hours in 3 weeks), designed to develop your soft, career, and foundational technical skills.

Why should I take this course?

When you look up future skills for work, a lot of things come up around automation. But Essential Skills for Career Development are about going back to what makes us human.

"In a world where reliance on technology is on the rise and where information is abundant, skills like creativity, working in teams, empathy, and self-reflection will be more important than ever."

Go ahead and read the full interview with our course developer Rana Magdy to get her insights into what went into this course and why these skills are critical to your success.

Is this course available to everyone?

Yes!! Well, almost that is! If you fit the criteria, admission is free and open.

Our vision is to make it possible for anyone, anywhere to join and thrive in the digital economy and our Inspire Series courses are available to a much wider audience than our immersive bootcamps.

There are still some selection criteria that apply such as youth between 18-34 living in the MENA region + Turkey. Some additional criteria might apply to each program, but look for those in the application form when you click to apply.

What happens after I have submitted an application?

Once you have submitted the application form, you will receive an email acknowledging we have received your application. Once the application deadline is due, we will begin the selection process and send you an email of acceptance shortly before the cohort begins. Admission is free and open to anyone who fits our selection criteria.

Will I join a class or study on my own?

You will do this course in your own time using our LMS (Learning Management System) as this course is self-paced and asynchronous. You won't be alone though. You will start your learning at the same time as everyone else who has been admitted, and you will get an opportunity to join our community and participate in a kick-off event where you will meet the other students.

Throughout the course, there will be live seminars with local or international experts, and you will be put through your paces with discussions, assignments, and quizzes.

Do I get a diploma/certificate at the end of the course?

Yes, you get a certificate of completion once you complete the course. You will receive this in PDF format and also instructions on how to embed your certificate into your LinkedIn profile.

Can I finish it in less than 3 weeks?

Well, it is possible to finish the course in less than 3 weeks. However, we highly recommend that you don't rush through the course and take the time to complete it with quality. We recommend that you try and utilize the entire 3 weeks, join the optional seminars, and engage with your classmates.

It’s not mandatory to join the online community events or seminars, however, they are filled with valuable information and allow you to hear from experts and engage with your classmates.

Is this really free?

Yes! Like every other program at Re:Coded we are kindly supported by our donors. In the application form, you will see who is supporting your specific course.
