MORE ABOUT KFC:

Welcome to Kentucky Fried Chicken. Our world famous chicken restaurant brand all started with one cook, Colonel Harland Sanders, who created a finger lickin’ good recipe more than 75 years ago, a list of secret herbs and spices scratched out on the back of the door to his kitchen.

He started travelling by car to different restaurants and cooked his fried chicken on the spot for restaurant owners. He did this at the age of 65. If the owner liked the chicken, they would enter into a handshake agreement to sell the Colonel’s chicken.

Legend has it that Colonel Sanders heard 1009 “No’s” before he heard his first yes.

The Colonel’s story still inspires us today. It reminds us how grit, perseverance, dedication and ambition along with hard work can create success; regardless of your age or where you come from.

Our purpose as an employer is to empower our people to find their own secret recipe in life too.

At KFC, our platform has constantly evolved to make it as easy as possible to order our great chicken.

We brought our development in-house four years ago which has helped to drive collaboration and innovation.

Here at KFC, we empower people to be their best selves, make a difference and have fun.

Think you can only buy our chicken in-store at our restaurants?! Think again!

We’ve created a fast, simple omnichannel experience to help people order and get their food in the way that is most convenient to them, whether that be through our app to collect service via the front counter or drive-thru, in-store kiosk integrations, or fully integrated aggregator delivery (Deliveroo, JustEat, UberEats etc) and there’s more to come.

And our Data Science and Technical Teams are central to this!

We will get in contact with you once the new cohort partners are launched for you to 1. confirm that you are available for the latest cohort dates  2. confirm the companies and roles you are interested in and 3. provide any company-specific application requests.

It’s really important to us that you select the companies/roles you feel you are best suited for as part of your application.

If you are no longer available, you will have the option to apply for future cohorts. If there are no suitable companies, we will keep you informed of any last-minute suitable companies that may come on board, CFG-sponsored places opportunities or you can wait for the next cohort.

We will have international roles available in upcoming cohorts and are expanding across different regions & countries. This means that we will be able to accept applications from candidates who are local to, or able to work in one of our international locations. We welcome applications from all regions, but you will need to specify any right-to-work or visa information for job roles in a region different to where you currently reside.

Some partner companies accepting applications for UK-based roles will be able to sponsor a VISA. This is specific to each company, so this will be communicated in each company’s application/role details.  

Please make sure that your current VISA status is accurate on your application.

CFGDEGREE GENERAL FAQS

Yes! The CFGdegree is sponsored by companies with the expectation that you will go on to work at that company. Note that while the CFGdegree is free, by taking up a place you will be getting over £10,000 worth of education for free.

You need to identify as a woman or non-binary individual to be able to apply for the CFGdegree. You will need some understanding of the specialisation you are applying for (gained either through our classes or another provider) to be able to pass the initial tech assessment stage as well.

Additionally, you must be available to accept a position within the sponsoring company and in their selected working region.

Each sponsoring company has different requirements, so it’s important that you read each application carefully. Some of these requirements include: 

  • You must be eligible to work in the UK (if you require visa sponsorship, please specify this on your application)
  • Being a recent graduate or someone looking to move into a tech career. There is no maximum age for a career switcher!
  • Location. If the company has a remote working policy, this is stated in the application. If they require you to work in a specific office location, this is also specified and you may need to relocate in order to accept this role. 
  • Educational background: certain companies are looking for candidates who have done a STEM course whilst others are open to all backgrounds; including those who haven’t attended further education.

 

Yes. As part of you accepting a place on the CFGdegree, you will be asked to sign an agreement stating that you will accept a job offer from the sponsoring company if this is specified in the application.

Once the agreement is signed, receipt of your course certificate depends on the acceptance of the job offer and completion of any related interviews within the sponsor company.

Some partner companies accepting applications for UK-based roles will be able to sponsor a VISA. This is specific to each company, so please check the application form carefully. 

We are also expanding our classes and CFGdegree places internationally. This means that we will be able to accept applications from candidates who are local to, or able to work in one of our international locations. 

Please carefully consider the location when applying and make sure that your current VISA status is accurate on your application.



No. Any position you are offered will start upon completion of the CFGdegree. If your application is successful you will find out further details around the role, including salary closer to the time. Note that this will vary depending on the company.

The roles available are dependent on the sponsoring company. This can vary between an internship, fixed-term contracts and full time, permanent roles. 

No. The CFGdegree is designed to place candidates into tech roles at our partner sponsoring companies. Each role is detailed as part of the application. 

To complete additional courses without applying to a specific role, take a look at our @uni Kickstrater or Coding Kickstarter Classes here. These are held regularly throughout the year. If you would like to take a guaranteed place in one of our classes, please check out our paid Coding Kickstarter courses.

Additionally, we have our MOOC Sprints and Challenges where you can also be certified across a range of topics.

You will receive confirmation if you successfully gain a place within the two weeks prior to the CFGdegree commencing.

Once you have successfully applied for the CFGdegree, you must complete a tech assessment and video interview specific to your first choice of sponsor company. Should you fit the sponsor company’s requirements and submit an impressive application, you may then be shortlisted for an interview by the sponsor company who will choose successful applicants. Once their offer has been accepted, you will have a place on the course.

On our CFGdegree page, we also have a flow chart of the stages of the CFGdegree application process.

Financial institutions in particular usually request a financial background check for all staff members. Some companies require this as an ongoing process, for example, every 5 years for existing staff members. 

We encourage applicants to financial institutions, in particular, to complete a soft financial check from a website like ClearScore to check for anything in your financial history that may be flagged. If you have a CCJ on your record, this may be listed on a sponsor company credit check and may be raised by the hiring company during pre-employment screenings. If you are aware of anything at the application stage, please disclose this to the sponsor company.



Each sponsor company has a different role on offer and details of the salary will be provided at the interview stage, once you have been shortlisted for interview. We do not publish the salary at the application stage as our aim is to match the right candidate to each sponsor company, so your choice can be based on the role and location that fits best for you.

You need a working laptop or desktop computer. This can be Mac, Linux, or Windows. Participants using ChromeBooks may run into some difficulties. Ipads or other tablets will not work with the classes. 

We use a variety of platforms and software, you can find the list below: 

  • Google suite (Docs, Sheets, Slides etc)
  • Zoom
  • Slack
  • Pycharm
  • My SQL Workbench
  • Github
  • IDE like Atom or Visual Studio Code

All course materials are free of charge and we will not ask for payment to use them. If you are having trouble downloading the software, please ensure that you are using the free/community version of each platform.

Please also make sure that your device is up-to-date with the latest software and that you have permission to download software to the device. 

The CFGdegree is a 14-week course including a break reading week after the first seven weeks. It’s a commitment of four evenings per week over this period (Monday to Thursday) between 6.30pm – 8.30pm each evening. Candidates will complete a seven-week foundation layer of the CFGdegree, followed by six weeks in their specialisation area.

The specialisation section is tailored to each sponsor company and the roles that they are interviewing for. Please think carefully about the course and company that you would like to apply for as the CFGdegree is a significant commitment. 

All sessions are designed for someone that also has a full-time job, studies or caring responsibilities so they will be held in the evenings between 6.30pm-8.30pm each session, Monday – Thursday.

We encourage candidates on the CFGdegree to engage with their peers outside of course times as group projects make up a large part of the assessment.



You do not need to choose between the CFGdegree specialisations when applying, however, the specialisation is directly linked to roles at each company. For example, a company is advertising a Data Engineering role, they are likely to be sponsoring places on our Data CFGdegree. On the course, you will have a foundation layer (six weeks) that will cover core areas around Python, SQL and Web Development, before progressing on to your specialisation. Note that not all clients are sponsoring all course specialisations (Data, Software or Full-Stack), so please read the website carefully when applying.

You are able to apply for up to two companies on the CFGdegree. Note that if you apply to more than this your original application will be overwritten and not be counted.

If you have applied for multiple companies and are at the video interview stage, please answer questions related to your first choice of sponsoring company. 

We also request that you specify two backup companies who are also offering spaces on this intake. This means that you can complete applications to those additional companies and will be considered for other spaces if you are unsuccessful in your first choice.

Ideally you will have completed one of our Code First Girls Intro courses in either Python, Data or Web Dev. However, we take applications from a wide range of learning backgrounds and experience, so to progress your application you will need to pass our initial tech assessment which will be sent out to all eligible candidates as a first step. The tech assessment directly relates to the specialisation chosen. 

We have created a tech assessment in Python, Javascript and SQL. You can choose any of these for your assessment, as you will be covering all three languages in the foundation weeks of the course.

Yes, if you fail the first attempt at the tech assessment and score between 40-49% you will be invited to retake this. After two attempts, you will not be able to retake the assessment unless you apply for the next intake of the CFGdegree.

The tech assessment is a standardised process for every candidate to make sure that they all start the CFGdegree at the same level of understanding. We have created a tech assessment in Python, Javascript and SQL. You can choose any of these for your assessment, as you will be covering all three languages in the foundation weeks of the course. All candidates will need to achieve 50% or higher to pass the tech assessment stage.

We appreciate that personal circumstances can sometimes get in the way but we do require an attendance of at least 80% as well as successful completion of all projects and assessments to pass the CFGdegree.

Final projects and all homework must be delivered in full to receive your certificate at the end of the programme.



Yes, all CFGdegree classes will be taught remotely.

Although the sessions are taught remotely, you must be available to work in the sponsor company’s selected job region following completion of the CFGdegree.

Yes, you can. The courses lead to an offer from the sponsor company in advance of starting the course. This means that you must be available to work in or relocate to the region the CFGdegree is listed in. All courses will be taught remotely, but the job offer is based on a specific location.

Yes, there is homework for each week of the CFGdegree and you will also be working on a project linked to your specialisation areas in the second six weeks of the course.

Homework and final projects must be delivered in order to receive your certificate at the end of the course.

There will be a dedicated course channel where instructors will be able to provide support outside of the core teaching hours. Note that there may also be optional helper sessions throughout the CFGdegree.

Yes, you will receive official certification for completing the CFGdegree once you have submitted all necessary projects and assessments.

Grades are usually released four weeks after the course ends.

 

There will be assessments throughout the CFGdegree as well as one prior to starting as part of the application process to assess current levels of knowledge. There will also be a project and coursework that will go towards your final marking.

 

The final assessment grades: pass, merit or distinction will be awarded upon completion of the CFGdegree. Your final grade will be a cumulation of attendance, coursework and the final project. If you don’t pass the CFGdegree you will be given an opportunity to take a resit assessment; the highest grade you can achieve from the resit assessment is a pass.

Yes. We will be planning further CFGdegrees and they will be announced via our website and social channels closer to the time.

We are delivering CFGdegree courses across Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Autumn cohort dates are between August and November.

Spring ‘23 cohort dates are between February and May.

Summer ‘23 cohort dates are between May and August.

We want to make sure as many of our applicants as possible are able to receive a place on the CFGDegree, which often means our wait times for outcomes are long. This is usually due to us being presented with opportunities to place even more applicants, which is always our priority. Everybody will hear back no later than one week before the CFGDegree begins. We know how frustrating it can be – please hang tight!

We appreciate your interest and enthusiasm to join the CFG CFGdegree. Unfortunately, due to the high number of applications, we are unable to provide individual feedback to all applicants. You are welcome to apply again for a later intake. Please make sure that you have read the eligibility requirements carefully for the roles you are applying for.
