How to build a successful engineer academy

Key takeaways:

  • How to recruit fledgeling engineers

At Made Tech, we are currently running two academies per year. For each session, we recruit sixteen individuals with minimal coding experience. We pay them a salary to spend twelve weeks training full time in modern software development techniques and then we take them on as software consultants.

From small beginnings and over a period of many years, we have built a highly successful and effective training programme. In this webinar, we will share some of the principles and techniques we use to make this work.
