We believe communication is crucial, and at UCLA Extension Boot Camps, we use Slack to keep in contact. Slack is a great tool that enables students to communicate with their Student Success Manager, their instructional staff, and each other.
Feedback Loops »
Feedback helps us ensure we are providing the best experience for our students, that is why we have established several feedback loops in our programs. Throughout the experience, the student success team administers surveys to record student backgrounds, demographics, goals, and program feedback, in addition to weekly sentiment assessments that enable us to make real-time changes as needed.
Quality Assurance »
Our programs use advanced technologies to make sure that students are receiving a valuable instructional experience. Classes are recorded and audited for data analysis and quality control, allowing us to oversee the curriculum in real time. Through these methods, we can provide constructive feedback to our instructional team and top level student support.
Built on Empowerment »
Our Career Services team is focused on empowering YOU. We are confident that our students have what it takes. Our team is there to guide you and give you the tools you need to find a job you love, but it’s up to you to use the skills you acquired during our program to get there. While we can’t do the work for you, we can show you the way and motivate you to reach beyond your comfort zone in order to get the job you’ve always dreamed of. With dedication and confidence, our graduates are very successful.
As part of our central support network, students have a Career Services Director to build an employer network, coordinate the career curriculum and networking events, and provide coaching for career preparedness. Qualified students have access to career coaching, portfolio reviews, resume and social media profile support, technical interview training, and more to get them equipped to tackle the interview process.
