Will the Front End Web Development track be enough to land a junior web developer position?

Just wondering how much material is in this track. Is it enough material for me to create a portfolio on my own that employers would like to see from a junior developer and be job ready?

There is no reason why not. Most companies, however; would wish to see some sort of portfolio. I'd invest your time in showcasing your skills and showcasing that not only have you learned the concepts, but you also know how to follow a brief and implement them. A good way of practicing is to do a voluntary site for a charitable organisation, which has little funds to invest in their website. You'd be doing something good and learning from it.
