We’ve combined our experience in designing and delivering corporate training with an apprenticeship standard, providing a better way to fast-track your developers to mid and senior level so that you can build better tech.
Unleash your developers' productivity with a range of industry-driven courses and tech-agnostic masterclasses on topics like cloud operations, testing and more. You can choose a language-specific deep-dive course as part of the programme for your developers, too.
When you invest in your developers, they become invested in you. Not to mention they deliver far more value back to your business, faster. Our programmes combine instructor-led workshops, e-learning, mentoring and practical project-based learning to help your tech team write better code, no matter your industry.
This programme can be fully paid for using your apprenticeship levy pot. No levy? You don’t need to pay into the apprenticeship levy to use it. Funding is available for organisations of any size via co-investment or levy transfer. We just need a few details about your organisation, and we’ll do the rest.
The exact structure of the DevAccelerator varies depending on the cohort. Here is how a typical programme could look.
Your developers will take part in a three extended Masterclasses:
> 1 Language Masterclass
> 2 Northcoders DevLabs Masterclasses
all led by our subject matter experts.
We have GO, TypeScript and C# Language Masterclasses available on upcoming courses. You can choose from Masterclasses such as Cloud Ops, DevOps, Mobile App Development and Applied Testing for your DevLabs courses.
hroughout the DevAccelerator, each engineer will receive support in your language and stack from their Northcoders mentor, monthly support meetings and a progress review.
Usually, apprentices will complete:
Recognised Professional Certification – your developers will work towards a certification of your choice, relevant to your stack, such as AWS, Azure and Oracle
Human Skills – being a developer involves more than just the tech. Our expert partner will deliver training to help build soft skills relevant to tech.
Knowledge Module Assessment - Your developers will demonstrate what they have learned during our DevLabs courses.
End-Point Assessment - Once your developers have passed all of the knowledge modules, they will complete their End-Point Assessment. This will consolidate their knowledge and demonstrate what they have learned to complete their Level 4 Software Development Apprenticeship.
Your developers will be awarded a certificate after their End-Point Assessment has been reviewed. You will be rewarded with a team of confident, self-sufficient software developers with the right mindset to continue thriving.
