A RampUp is a part-time, community driven, hybrid learning experience which teaches skills the new economy demands. It does so while building a network around you and connecting you to the employer community.
We know it is difficult to learn by yourself. RampUp combines Teaching Mentors (TMs) from around the community, great online resources, and in person meetings to create an unparalleled learning network.
Traditional classrooms do not accommodate a range of ability levels. The typical teacher picks a baseline -- a starting point where they think most students are -- and begins teaching from that point, leaving students below the benchmark behind and failing to engage students who master the material at a faster pace. This process was built knowing that everyone has a different skill level.
We've crafted an experience called community learning. We screen all applicants to ensure a cohort of various backgrounds and ability levels, united by a self-directed desire to learn relevant skills. A typical cohort consists of 20-25 people. We then form smaller groups to propel everyone forward through a self-tailored curriculum.
