About the programmes

Our 12-week virtual academy programmes, offer candidates the opportunity to specialise in:

  • DevOps
  • Software development
  • Robotic process automation (RPA)
  • Pega BPM
  • Salesforce
  • Cyber

Throughout the duration of the academy, recruits regularly submit work and projects, creating a portfolio to validate the skills learned and developed. At the end of the programme, candidates present a final project to demonstrate their capability.

We are able to hold virtual open days at the academies, allowing clients to meet candidates and assess their skills first hand. Those interested in recruiting from the QA Talent Academy are invited, with no obligation, to attend virtual open days and final presentation assessments.
