Tech City Stars’ Reboot Camp™ is a fantastic experience, one that can really change your life for the better.
Of course, we would love to offer places to everyone who applies to become a Tech City Star! However, we have to limit our numbers due to space and make sure that each successful applicant gets the right amount of attention from each of us.
For us to best assess your suitability for Reboot Camp™, we hold a series of Assessment Centres at our Aldgate East offices. Here you will be interviewed by one of our Candidate Consultants to assess your suitability. Need some interview tips? Have a read of our interview tips blog series – part 1, part 2 and part 3.
- Proof of NI number (card or letter)
- Maths & English GCSE certificates
- If receiving JSA, proof of this
Our Assessment Centres run every Tuesday and Thursday starting Thursday 2nd June – Thursday 23rd June and are held in our Aldgate office. Watch our Find Us video to see how you get here.
This is your chance to really prove to us what makes you the perfect candidate for Tech City Stars. We have high standards, expecting you to have researched Tech City Stars and know the pathway that you are most suited to – Take a look out our Reboot Camp™ page for more info on our pathways: Digital & Creative, IT Support & Networks and Web & Software Development.
We expect punctuality and unfortunately due to the competition for places, if you are late, you won’t be interviewed. So make sure to check out our Find Us video and have researched our address on Google Maps to be absolutely sure you will make it with plenty of time.
I thought it might be covering things I already knew but in actual fact I learnt so much and helped me develop my current skills even more – Tiago Valente
On the day, you will also be expected to pass Initial Assessments in English and maths. These are essential for you to be able to start Reboot Camp™ and be considered for an Apprenticeship with Tech City Stars.
After you have completed your Initial Assessments and interviewed with one of our Candidate Consultants, you are free to go. We aim to have made a decision on your application and interview within 24 hours of you attending an Assessment Centre. So keep an eagle eye on your mobile phone and check your emails!
We wish all Tech City Stars applicants the very best of luck in their interviews at Assessment Centres – see you there!
