In-Demand Tech Skills and Workplace Excellence

Individuals with the attitude and aptitude to succeed will be provided with the hardest-to-find tech skills that will help organisations access and onboard great talent without any recruitment costs.

QA will ensure learners also gain the relevant workplace skills to positively impact your business from day one.

Three ways to get involved

Be the first off-the-block to interview fresh tech talent

Do you have projects that are stalling due to lack of resources, or tech teams that need bolstering? Are you planning to recruit in data, IT support, cyber security, software development or software testing?

Get ahead of the pack and talk to us today to secure interviews with our talented bootcamp graduates. As well as up-to-date tech skills, you will also benefit from no recruitment fees and ongoing support from QA throughout the first 9 months of your new recruit’s career with your organisation. It’s not just for big companies either. The bootcamps aim to place 65% of learners with SME employers.

Reskill your existing talent – at a subsidised cost

Tech moves fast, and skills can go out of date quickly. Individuals from across your organisation could develop or build-upon core, industry specific tech skills whilst still productively fulfilling their day job.

As little as 12 weeks later they’ll be equipped with the latest high-demand, digital, software development or Cloud skills.

Learners don't need any existing tech skills as QA will teach everything they need to know to start an exciting new career in as little as 12 weeks!

To find out how this could work for your workforce.

Get involved – help make the programme more effective

It’s important that learners leave the programme with a genuine understanding of the workplace but also real-world best practices. They also need to spend time with people that can help them hone their interview skills. We already have lots of brilliant partners on board from Microsoft to Ingram Micro and Mumsnet – but we need more.

Could you share your tech experience? Could you help with interview practice or provide mentoring? Or even deliver an employer session as part of the learning programme?

To find out how you could help make the programme more effective, and get more people into careers in tech.
