Currently unemployed and registered in Germany?
You could be eligible to take our Full-Stack Web Development Program for free
CareerFoundry’s Full-Stack Web Development Program has been officially certified by DEKRA, which means you can take the program free of charge with a Bildungsgutschein.
Not sure what a Bildungsgutschein is?
A Bildungsgutschein is an educational voucher issued by the German Employment Agency (the Agentur für Arbeit). If you’re unemployed and officially registered in Germany, a Bildungsgutschein will enable you to learn new, in-demand skills for free.
Read on to discover how you can use the Bildungsgutschein to become a fully-fledged web developer in a matter of months with the CareerFoundry Full-Stack Web Development Program!

Why become a web developer?
A job you will love
As a web developer, you have the satisfaction of solving complex problems and turning your ideas into reality with just your laptop. Web development was rated in Career Karma's top 25 tech jobs in 2021.
High demand means high pay
Employers struggle to find qualified web developers, and the demand keeps growing. The average developer salary in Germany is €53,304—though that will vary depending on seniority and location.
A flexible career path
As a web developer, you will have the opportunity to work for startups, agencies, large corporates, on a freelance basis, or even remotely.
Why choose CareerFoundry?
Our Dual Mentorship Model ensures that you get all the support you need. You’ll have a tutor—an experienced web developer responsible for evaluating your exercises within 24 hours of submission, and a mentor—a web developer industry expert who gives detailed written, video, and on-call feedback on your portfolio pieces.
Flexibility with accountability
Study full-time for 6 months (40 hours/week) or part-time for 12 months (20 hours/week). Your mentor, tutor, student advisor, and career specialist will help you stay on track.

What you don’t need:
A background in design or tech
This program is designed to take you from beginner to job-ready—regardless of your background. And now more than ever, employers see bootcamp graduates as excellent job candidates. A 2021 study by Career Karma found that companies as respected as Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft are some of the largest employers of bootcamp graduates. The same study revealed that, in 2020, those same companies hired up to 120% more bootcamps graduates than they did in 2019!
Unlimited free time
You can study part-time at a pace of 20 hours per week to finish the program in 12 months. You can also complete the program in 6 months by committing 40 hours per week.
To learn all on your own
You can enjoy the flexibility of online learning with the accountability and one-on-one attention traditionally associated with brick-and-mortar institutions. Much like a college professor might inspire you to pursue a career in a certain field, your mentor, tutor, career specialist, and student advisor will keep you motivated and on track.
• To lose your unemployment benefits
While taking the Full-Stack Web Development Program with a Bildungsgutschein, you are still entitled to receive your unemployment benefits.
