Talented marketers are always in demand because revenue teams need a healthy flow of people interested in what they have to offer.

Frequently asked questions.

Do I need to know how to code to participate in School16?

No, you do not need to know code to work in tech! School16 was developed to educate people on the opportunities that exist in the non-technical side of tech (i.e. the non-coding side). So no matter your background or experience, we will help you develop the skills and confidence needed to gain access to the best opportunities.

Do I get a degree once I graduate?

Yes, graduates receive the official School16 certificate of completion and access to all future School16 events and past class recording

What type of jobs will I be eligible for after completing the program?

The program is designed to expose students to the four core non-coding roles in tech — sales, marketing, operations, product management, and other roles related to these core disciplines. Oftentimes School16 graduates land jobs in tech sales, customer success, and marketing.

Who is the program for?

This program is for anyone that's interested in pursuing a non-technical career in the technology sector. While learning how to code can be a useful skill for anyone, there's currently a major talent gap for high-income jobs in the tech sector that don't require programming experience.
Roles across product, operations, marketing, and sales are also far more open to candidates from non-traditional backgrounds, allowing for more rapid career progression than other fields.

How much does the program cost?

School16 offers flexible payment options and opportunities to learn risk free.

The full tuition is $2,500 and all students automatically get considered for need-based scholarships with the option to repay tuition in monthly installments. If you're currently unemployed, and you do not receive a scholarship, you have the option of deferring payment until you get a job. If you would like to talk about the options we may have available for you schedule a free discovery call here.

What does the program consist of?

The Technology Career Acceleration Program is structured as a rotational experience to expose you to everything from marketing to product — creating a well-rounded set of skills that will make you a highly effective member of any technology team.

Unlike with other industries, technology companies move fast and prioritize cross-functional skills and the ability to quickly solve a variety of problems. This is why you often see people moving from Sales to Product, or Customer Success to Marketing. No matter your background and experience, we will help you develop the skills and confidence to gain access to the best opportunities.

The curriculum consists of three main session types:

- General career classes to help you develop a personal brand and narrative that employers will seek out;
- Specialized role awareness classes that teach you the most important principles of a given role in tech;
- Experiential classes that put what you learn into immediate practice to help build out your resume

Classes typically run 90 minutes to two hours.

What is the origin of School16?

The name School16 is inspired by a little known school that was founded in a small city in Eastern Europe in 1981. The school was an experiment to test a new model of education that prioritized student interests and talents over a rigid learning curriculum. Two years later this would become one of the most innovative education programs in all of the former Soviet Union, with delegates from all over the world studying its model. That school was called School No. 16, and the Founding Director was our father, Dr. Samuel Revzin. 

Since becoming university educators ourselves after spending a decade in tech, we saw that the rapidly changing opportunity landscape is creating a new moment in time where innovation in adult education is necessary. Career success today depends more on good communication and adaptability than it does on any one particular area of academic study.When it comes to high-income technology careers specifically, a well-rounded foundation and understanding of how business teams function is critical to career advancement, and School16 is building a new model of education to address this new reality.

Our mission at School16 is to create a learning environment that provides opportunities for all students, regardless of background or experience, to rapidly acquire the knowledge necessary to lead fulfilling and successful careers.

Can I keep my current job while I complete the program?

Yes! The Technology Career Acceleration Program is a twice-a-week part-time program designed to provide working students with the ability to complete the program, while maintaining their current professional responsibilities. Many of our students also expense the program through work as professional development training. You can email us at info@school16.co to learn more about expensing School16 tuition through work.
