How we work

Our training approach

Understanding your needs

We start our collaboration by running a comprehensive engineering survey to build a solid understanding of the skills needed by your team, their current knowledge of these skills, and your key business objectives.

Tailored content

We then build your personalised engineering program, matching mentored pair programming sessions with classroom and Q&A style training across our varied course catalogue, addressing different expertise levels to meet the specific needs of your team.

Tangible impact

Finally, we run another engineering survey. This is to create reports on how your team has developed and improved, and to provide certification where applicable.
