Potência Tech offers a thousand scholarships for front-end courses

Program partners with DevMedia to offer initial training in programming

O Tech Power, iFood's education platform, will offer a thousand scholarships for the front-end course of its new partner, DevMedia. Registration to participate is now open and can be done at course website until June 4th.

This partnership seeks to benefit people who would not have access to education in the technology area and train professionals so that they are capable of building websites from scratch and entering the job market.

Therefore, people from underrepresented profiles in technology — women (cis and trans), men (trans), self-declared black people (black and brown), yellow or indigenous people, LGBTQIAP+ and people with disabilities — or with per capita household income of up to R$ 2,000.

What's different about this front-end course?

The difference with this front-end training is gamification. This means fewer classes and more practice and rewards for good performance, which students can exchange for raffle tickets (and compete for prizes) or purchase their avatar and customize their profile.

The Training Platform course aimed at programmers has a workload of 339 hours and comprises 54 contents. Students will receive six months of access to the platform to complete the front-end track.

The selection and announcement of the people selected to win the scholarship will take place on the 5th and 7th of June — and on the 12th of June the inaugural live event will be held, marking the beginning of the class.
