Programme set by Software Development Companies
The ‘Job-Ready’ Programme is a practical boot camp course specifically designed for people wanting to get their first job in Software Development. It is created and presented by experienced software developers and IT professionals, who share their knowledge, tips and tricks gained over many years within the industry.The programme was started to help small groups gain the .NET development knowledge used in the commercial world. The course has now been extended to cover the essential interpersonal skills you will need to succeed in your role as a software developer. The combined effect of gaining ‘in-demand’ technical skills, improved communication skills and relevant project experience will ensure you stand out when meeting employers.
Participants are guided by experienced developers the entire way, and receive hands-on coaching, one-on-one mentoring and practical advice throughout a real-world commercial project. This provides a unique opportunity to gain first-hand project experience throughout the SDLC (Software Development Lifecycle), including client meetings, analysing business requirements, specifying and designing solutions, coding, testing and support.
The job-ready programme provides real-world insights into working in the IT industry. You will experience what it’s really like to work in the industry. You will learn key industry terms and communication techniques while building valuable personal industry connections.
We are here to assist with guidance in your personal job hunt, including assistance with CV preparation and interview techniques. Upon successful completion of the programme and internship you receive a reference letter to endorse your commercial project development experience while with us.
