I recently joined a workplace, after`6 months and job hunting and 41 rejection but after 1 week I got selected in a Bootcamp on scholarship which is a big big news for me as I believe I do have lack of knowledge where I need guidance as I keep loosing job over and over again during my 10 yrs and now I want it to be stable
No doubt I had been doing a lot of CSS work but as a FE CSS is just a part of the story and with the world changed since I started it is all API’s and JS and I have learned a lot from FCC and other websites but I am slow learner, the Bootcamp will give me 1-2-1 mentorship which I think will break me away from loose of things that holding me back and I will have full time no interruption (which I couldn’t have).
Given the situation, I fear that if I tell my manager about the scholarship (which is only one time) and asking him for 3 months arrangement they might terminate me but at the same time, I also fear that what If I don’t find work about Bootcamp as I anticipated and I will have a grim situation.
The flipside of this is if I say no to Bootcamp which is free for me (worth 7k GBP), I will work on the job and if they don’t like my work (given my history of losing work in term from few months to a max of 1.5 yr) I will let of an opportunity and again on the market with same old skillset.
How can I talk to my manager into asking them that I want to do this Bootcamp as it will greatly help me in my job as FE to become FS in JS and still keep my job while making some arrangement or am I being too naive?
