 S&A’s Junior Developer 4 Week Booster Programme

Designed by industry CTO’s to provide additional, real world, relevant skills training to your junior developers, as well as your employees already undergoing a traditional software developer apprenticeship

We’ve designed a focused 4 week training programme to help your junior developers (and other technology staff)  deliver value faster. Our programme helps to take the onboarding and training burden away from your in-house senior developers (who are already overloaded with critical tasks) and enables you to turn your existing available talent into enthusiastic, effective team members much quicker.

Engineering Managers have told us that they want a focus on people skills, agile and XP practices and software craftmanship to nurture a build it, ship it, support it, DevOps style mindset.

You could find that in your cloud costs, in your training budget, in your starting salary for a Junior Developer.
