The Informal School of IT is present in Cluj-Napoca, Bucharest, Iasi and Timisoara, cities with potential for development on the IT & C market, and is addressed to technology-loving people who want a career in IT and to the local companies specialized in IT & Software who want to recruit well-trained staff, equipped with skills and practical skills tested by IT specialists.

Braşov ranks fourth in the top of the counties with the most numerous IT staff and is a strategic location for us. Although the number of employees has increased significantly over the past few years, companies face a large shortage of candidates. The Informal School of IT comes to meet this need and will initially start in Brasov programs for IT initiation, software testing and front-end web development, and we will add other courses that we organize in other citiesas well. In addition, we analyze the needs of the companies in Braşov and the opportunity to include new disciplines addressing local specificities, said Patricia Barbu, Site Manager, IT Braşov Informal School.

In an increasingly competitive global IT market, Romanian companies are constantly pursuing both the quality of their services and the number of employees. The typology of the classic employee has changed, it evolves and requires more and more knowledge: both soft, technical and business from other areas. The Informal School of IT helps companies provide them with trained people in a very close context to the real world. We do it with mentors who are experts in the field, we use a curriculum designed to meet the needs of the companies, in a very practical spirit. Candidates undergo a rigorous selection process, participate in courses in a demanding system, and are ready for an interview with the companies. We aim to be as close as possible to companies to understand their needs, take into account our feedback and evolve with them, said Sorin Stan, CEO of the Informal IT School.

More than 2,200 people have graduated from the Informal School of IT. Any person with the minimum age of 18, with a good academic background (university or high school graduate), with or without professional experience, may be eligible for enrollment at the school's courses. Admission to courses is based on a rigorous selection process. After registration, the candidates go through three stages in the selection process. It is a specific procedure of the school that aims to establish the hard and soft skills of each candidate, the skills for a certain course or to reorient it to another discipline. The first step involves analyzing information provided by candidates when signed up on the school's website. In the second stage, candidates run a counter-time online test. This test is eliminatory. Stage three is a face-to-face interview with candidates who have achieved a good result in the previous test. The interview is supported by a HR specialist or a recruiter.

More than 120 software companies in Romania have hired staff from IT Informatics graduates.
The mentors of the school are professionals who work in top companies in the programming industry and truly understand all aspects of real IT work, from leading projects and large teams to working with customers. 85 mentors are teaching at this time in the classrooms of the school.

The role of the mentors is to bring the practical way of learning into the classroom and to develop a simulative environment that best reflects the real work environment of an IT firm. Students interact directly with school mentors in interactive sessions in the form of practical workshops and soft skills sessions that prepare graduates for the hiring process.

Each discipline is coordinated by a selected manager based on the performance and practical experience of the field / technology concerned. Managers work in top companies in the programming industry and are concerned with improving learning techniques and bringing the latest technology into the classrooms.
More than 300 participants are currently in the classrooms from the whole country and will be guided for the hiring process in IT companies.
