PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Here at Lantern, we recognize that each and every student comes in with their own set of unique skills and experiences. We have carefully devised two different program structures to better assist with our students’ success. Lantern offers both full-time and part-time programs that include professionally led mentorship, followed by a portfolio project, and an option solely dedicated to mentorship with a combination of a portfolio project. The goal of our Technical Mentorship program is to enhance the development of our students under the direct guidance of a senior industry professional, the mentor. Each student will be paired with their personal mentor, whom they will collectively craft a timeline and work schedule to ultimately complete their portfolio project and assist with the job landing process. Under the guidance of their mentor, students will receive laser-focused career guidance, industry insight, and technical training. Mentors will be available regularly to provide feedback and assistance on the mentee’s progress and project. Mentors will be there every step of the way ensuring to track progress and make recommendations along the way to efficiently help students become desirable candidates for hire.

The program will allow students to obtain flexible and direct supervision from their mentors, whom will provide network exposure, relevant laser-focused course material and a final supervised portfolio project to exemplify not only to your mentor but to your future employers your level of expertise and practical hands-on experience.

OUR
ALUMNI

The instructors are busy professionals, but they generously exchange ideas and supervise the projects and usually accept mentorship requests. The scopes of the projects vary from 1 month for the basic courses, to 4 months for the advanced courses. The system is very co-operative and in my personal case, I have learnt a lot from my classmates, while collaborating on different projects. Lantern has skin in the game and charges a small registration fee relative to the norm of the industry; its bulk of income depends on future graduates’ success in landing a decent career.

Prior to Lantern, I had specialized in UofT’s Analytics stream, which was just a theoretical exposure to 4 data science courses. At Lantern, I practically developed my coding skills. Serious students who dedicate time and effort (at least 20-30 hours a week) will develop the fundamental coding skills in Python and R within a 3-month time period, and then they can build up more complex Machine Learning and in-depth analytical projects supervised by instructors all of whom are industry professionals. The class size is approximately 20 students for general courses and gets smaller for more advanced courses. Throughout the semester, students get career advice, resume review, soft skills catch up, mock interviews and should also deliver a few presentations about the projects they have developed.
