<DevAccelerator />

Leverage the Levy

During the coronavirus outbreak we're working remotely, but we're open as normal. We can still help you grow your tech teams.

What is the DevAccelerator?

Invest in your juniors’ progression with a professional training programme tailored to your business and paid for with apprenticeship levy funding, co-investment or levy-transfer.

We’ve combined our experience in designing and delivering corporate training with an apprenticeship standard, providing a better way to provide a curriculum bespoke to your organisation at an unbeatable price.

A New Approach

Professional training shouldn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach, and apprenticeships are no different. Our training consultants have the knowledge and expertise to combine the apprenticeship standard with your requirements, delivering a one-of-a-kind curriculum to unleash your juniors’ productivity.

Custom-built For You

We build bespoke programmes that work across a range of industries. Your programme can feature a unique combination of e-learning, instructor-led workshops, mentoring and practical project-based learning. All of this will be tailored to your tech stack.

Leverage the levy

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 the size of your organisation and where you're headquartered, and we’ll do the rest.

An example programme

The DevAccelerator is designed to be bespoke. The structure of this programme can be designed around the needs of your business, both in terms of the format and what is covered.


You can enrol:
> People who are about to graduate from our coding bootcamp, the DevPathway
> Northcoders graduates and junior developers from your team
> Enrol your existing employees (who can’t code yet) on the DevPathway and then the DevAccelerator

Part 1

The structure of this phase of the programme can be designed entirely around the needs of your business. Typically, it will include:
Onboarding – Your team of developers will integrate into your organisation and work through a language pack matched to your tech stack.
Project Phase - The team will put all their knowledge into practice on a project of your choosing.

Part 2

Your developers will complete two Northcoders DevLabs courses. For example, they may take part in:
> Applied Testing
> DevOps Architecture
Throughout the DevAccelerator, each engineer will receive support from their Northcoders mentor, monthly support meetings and a progress review.

Part 3

The structure of this phase of the programme can be designed around the needs of your business. Typically, it might look like this:
Vendor Certification – your developers will work towards a certification of your choice, relevant to your stack.
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.
