Meet our team of educators

Our programs are co-created with tech companies or tech leads who regularly hire engineers.

STL’s and Mentors

Stl

Senior Team Lead is a senior industry professional who guide Turing College learners. STL is similar to a tech lead who mentors junior professionals at a tech company, as they provide consultations, 1on1 project reviews, and feedback.

MEntor

Your mentor from companies like Google, Amazon, etc., will guide you by answering questions and providing career advice. One-off mentorship meetings are organized with these specialists every couple of months for students who are interested in it.

“Feedback from senior team leads who are experts in data science field really enhance overall experience.”
