How to upskill your technical teams effectively

About this event

Read the full transcript

What is the most effective method for upskilling your technical teams and what are the benefits for both organisations and their people? In a perfect world, technical teams would have all of the skills and knowledge needed to deliver services before hitting the ground. However, this is rarely the case and we need to find an effective way to balance ongoing learning with day-to-day delivery.

Join our Senior Engineer, Scott Edwards, as he walks you through Made Tech’s upskilling journey, the lessons we have learned, and techniques for applying the same approach in your own organisation.

Topics we will cover include:

  • The benefits of structured learning, both for organisations and their people.
  • Advice on the first steps for kicking off communities of practice in your organisation.
  • How to measure the effectiveness of your learning strategy.


  • Scott Edwards, Senior Engineer at Made Tech


  • 45 minutes presentation
  • 15 minutes Q&A
