Delivered virtually through QA Virtual Classroom for residents of Northwest region, ongoing up until January 2022

Equip yourself with the essential skills leading organisations need right now, in just nine weeks. And do it all for free.

This is a unique chance to kickstart an exciting new career in an increasingly diverse, vibrant and in-demand sector. You just need to bring an open mind, a thirst for learning, and leave any pre-conceptions at the door.

The Digital Skills Bootcamps:

Geeks, nerds, computer boffins? Ask most people what they’d associate “DevOps” with and it’s likely you’d hear something like this. But this is 2021, and these stereotypes simply don’t stack up.

“DevOps” signifies a culture shift within technology, unifying development skills with interpersonal skills, critical thinking, and a desire to initiate positive change.

The Digital Skills Bootcamps, part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs, have one shared goal: to give people the opportunity to build up sector specific skills and fast track to an interview with a local employer. It’s that simple.

What’s on offer?

  • High-quality training – free, 9-week skills programme.
  • Full-time, virtual learning – intensive 9am to 5.30pm delivery, 5 days a week.
  • Key technical skills – you’ll cover everything up to DevOps Apprenticeship (Level 4) standard, including engaging modules on: Agile; Azure Fundamentals; Algorithm and Scripting; Networking and Security; Databases; Operating System Basics.
  • Support and mentoring – soft skills training to build your confidence in project work, presentation skills and team-working.

When you complete the Digital Skills Bootcamp, you’ll get:

  • Industry-recognised accreditation – earn certification from Microsoft, PeopleCert, and undergo SFIA-benchmarked employer-led assessment to boost your employability prospects.
  • Your own recruitment support manager, who’ll work straight away to secure job interviews for local technical roles.
  • Exclusive 12-months’ access to QA’s Cloud Academy platform of hands-on labs, learning paths, courses and quizzes.
  • 12-months’ BCS membership (The Chartered Institute for IT), with access to Career Mentoring
  • A 12-month discount to over 5000+ Microsoft & PeopleCert technology certifications.

What type of role would I be training for?

The word “DevOps” was formed by combining “development” and “operations” and is about removing the barriers between the development and operations teams to improve collaboration and productivity by automating infrastructure, workflow, and continuously measuring application performance.

Digital transformation efforts have driven enterprises in all industries toward “DevOps” and “agile methodologies” with a lot of big companies using DevOps to undergo a serious culture shift. In recent years the demand for DevOps has grown and is predicted to grow even more over the next five years.

A career in DevOps has a great and promising future with roles that can have a big impact on a business. As a hugely sought-after skillset in the global tech industry, big companies such as Amazon, HP, Etsy, Netflix and Adobe are always looking for candidates with these technical skills.
