Mistakes :

We should have given better feedback

We have more staffing in place to be able to offer good feedback to all applicants

Mistakes :

We have contacted some people too much about Bootcamp 3 applications

We promise to be more targeted and segmented with our approach to people to help us advertise Bootcamp 3.

Mistakes :

Slow replying to emails about Bootcamp 3

James left some emails unanswered more than the 1-2 days we strive to respond to people by when asking about Bootcamp 3. Sorry!

A tired team

We've hired some amazing Bootcamp Graduates to help us in the short term and are going to figure out a better way to run Bootcamps in the future.

Mistakes :

Missed deadlines during application process

We made the application process too complex and as a result didn't keep to some of the deadlines we set. 

Mistakes :

Omitted key supporters from an email

We will be much more careful next time we mention all our sponsors.

Briefing of coaches wasn’t well organised

We didn’t have enough time at Bootcamp to brief and follow up with all the coaches who came to support the learning process.

Confusing recruitment process

The recruitment process got a little confusing.

Mistakes :

We wrote Claremont wrong

We misspelt the name of Claremont, one of our sponsors, on the website.

Broken donate button

We didn’t sufficiently test the page functionality before emailing people to watch the video and donate.

Bad email management

Over 40 people emailed us but never got a response.

When we launched Bootcamp we set an age limit of 18-24.
