"Le Wagon is not paying teachers in Switzerland.

It was extremely cold, not too well equipped with just a few Ikea tables and not even screens" 🇪🇸“Where do you begin with this place and it’s unqualified teachers and TA’s (these are teaching assistants that are in fact people who just did the last bootcamp and can’t find a real job!)” 🇬🇧

It has been brought to our notice that activities potentially breaching both our Terms and Conditions and the Le Wagon Code of Conduct have been conducted through your use of our KITT platforms and dedicated Slack© space.Upon a preliminary review, it appears that your actions may have involved a wrongful gathering and dissemination of community information, alongside serious accusations that could harm the reputation of Le Wagon...In light of these suspicions and in accordance with the provisions set forth in our Terms of Use and in your Training Agreement, we are compelled to temporarily suspend your access to the KITT platform and to the Slack workspace, effective immediately.

As former students of Le Wagon's web development bootcamp in 2023, in our opinion the bootcamp:1) was mis-sold; using false/misleading job placement data2) with questionable teaching quality; a number of Teaching Assistants were graduates of the bootcamp, with little or no professional experience working as developers in any company (aside from freelance work)3) and little in terms of support; personal or professional, offered both during and post-bootcamp--We were confused by our experience - one which no one else seemed to be talking about on the review sites or in the alumni Slack group.The bootcamp industry is unregulated -- and we feel that bootcamps like Le Wagon are taking advantage of this.We wanted to speak up.A (growing) group of former Le Wagon students 🌍
