Guiding People To What They’re Best At
We use the core training as an extended assessment process to gauge an individual’s aptitude for a specific discipline, rather than pre-selecting individuals for specialist roles based on their education, background or initial desires. Based on the assessment results from all the modules and with guidance from our trainers, each individual is selected for the specific role where they will be most successful, based on their aptitude, ability and interests.
Over the years, we never cease to be surprised when, at the end of the six weeks, people with History or English degrees excel at the technical aspects and people with technical degrees show a stronger aptitude for softer roles.
Increase Collaboration, Understanding And Empathy Between Teams
By covering all areas within the SDLC, we train practitioners who are skilled in their selected specialism but also crucially are able to understand, collaborate and empathise with individuals and teams working in other disciplines. This allows people to succeed in their own roles whilst helping others – mindful of their impact on other teams and contributing to efficiency.
