We believe anyone can become an IT specialist. To achieve this goal you need only desire, diligence and discipline. We will take care of the rest.

We have developed a comprehensive training curriculum to master professional IT skills through practice.

STEP IT Academy has been working in the field of IT education since 1999. We cooperate with major software development companies and know what kind of education is necessary for a successful start in IT. Thanks to our unique curriculum and project-based approach, our students learn to solve real problems and are able to join the IT industry even during the training stage.

The value of the professional program “Software Development” is confirmed by thousands of STEP graduates who now work as qualified developers in the largest IT companies of 36 countries around the world.

Our values

Relevance, expertise, support

STEP IT Academy training process is based on three essential components of effective education.

Current curriculum

The knowledge and skills that our students gain must meet the requirements of employers today and in the future. Therefore, we review and update our curriculum every 6 months.

Trainers with practical skills

STEP IT Academy trainers are IT professionals with at least 5 years of experience. Our students receive only relevant knowledge and skills, applied in practice.

Friendly environment

We have created a special learning environment where trainers and students can communicate as partners, following one goal. Our classrooms and laboratories are equipped with comfortable workplaces, computers and licensed software.

Our students

This program is developed for

Students and graduates (15-18 y.o)

who will receive their first certification in software development

University students (18-23 y.o)

who desire a second specialty in parallel with their university education.

Representatives of other professions (23-55 y.o.)

who are not satisfied with their current careers and financial potential, and wish to train as a software developer for career in the IT industry

Those who wish to augment their IT qualifications

Students

After 2.5 years students of IT Academy STEP will receive

Maximum practical training

STEP educational process is practice based. We do not have boring lectures, our students are not required to write lectures summaries. All study materials are available on the modern and convenient online platform. Students can study at any place and at any time.

Completed portfolio

STEP IT Academy students work on interesting projects, following IT industry demands and employers' needs . The final step of the educational program is a graduation project. Students' projects are included into a professional portfolio which gives them a cutting edge in successfully finding employment.

Employment assistance

Representatives of leading IT companies attend students' projects presentations, and participate as jury members and speakers at hackathons and IT competitions organized by STEP. Hardworking and talented students are recruited even before graduation!

Why does the program last for 2.5 years, not just 3 months?

Often short courses promise to train a beginner into a qualified professional in just 3-4 months. This is either a lie or an incompetent statement. In such a short period of time, one can learn some basics, but not serious practical skills. After such courses, programmers will only be able to perform simple and low-paid tasks and need to learn more on their own in order to advance, constantly filling gaps in this basic education. Many self-taught programmers regret that they did not receive fundamental education at the very beginning of their careers. Our professional "Software Development" program covers all the necessary subjects for a professional designer. The program is designed for 2.5 years, or 5 terms. We are confident that this is the right duration to gain the skills and necessary experience to become a high in-demand professional.
