About kood /

kood/Jõhvi is a modern and international coding school in Estonia, created for adults of any age searching for self-development or retraining opportunities.

It’s a two year full-time program, taking place in Jõhvi, Estonia. 

Starting from 2023, 200 new IT specialists will enter the job market every year with our help. In addition to offering a high-level education and creating top-level specialists, the school aims to support the development of local entrepreneurship and create new jobs in the region.

The school will help to reduce the lack of software engineers in Estonia, offer an innovative addition to regular schools and strengthen our educational system.

The school is based in Jõhvi, Ida-Virumaa, and we strongly believe it’s a contribution to the community. It will increase the region’s economic competitiveness, create new opportunities for locals, and boost the diversity of technical and entrepreneurial skills.

kood/Jõhvi creates a strong base for further studies at universities and working at technology companies. The school operates on a cloud-based learning platform, where each student moves at their own pace, solving the tasks set by the system, linking theory to practice. There’s no tuition fee for the students.

Jõhvi was chosen as the location in accordance with the Estonian regional development plan. The establishment of an educational institution directly contributes to the education objective H1 of the Ida-Virumaa County Development Strategy, which provides a comprehensive education in Ida-Viru County by 2030+, ensuring students at least three language skills, strong digital competencies and an entrepreneurial attitude.

The Selection Sprint in summer 2021 and the first months of school, we will be staying in the Ida-Virumaa Vocational Education Center. Jõhvi school building will be fully renovated in the beginning of 2022 with study rooms and dormitories.
