QA is the UK’s leading tech skills provider, developing the skills and capabilities for everyone from apprentices to business leaders.
We’re honoured to be sponsoring the National Older Workers week. We are committed to fighting age discrimination and motivated to spread the benefits of upskilling and reskilling experienced talent across the tech industry and beyond.
We’re multigenerational and are proud that a large proportion of our workforce are experienced workers who share and pass on valuable life experiences and industry knowledge throughout our business. If you’d like to join an employer who values flexible working and lifelong learning then see if we have the vacancy for you. If you can’t quite find exactly what you’re looking for then please submit a speculative application and we’ll be in touch.
At QA we empower over a quarter of a million learners every year to thrive in the workplace – whether you’re jumping back into your career after a long period of time, want to completely shift gears and reskill into a new industry or are ready to take your career to the next level.
We can help through our:
• Digital apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships
• Consulting Academy – for those who want to be fast-tracked into a dynamic Digital Consultant role
• 2000+ Innovative short courses
• Tech Bootcamps
• Degree opportunities through our partnerships with some of the most reputable institutions in the UK
Apprenticeships aren’t just for school leavers. People of all ages are using the learning route as a way to reskill into a new career or upskill and earn recognised qualifications for the skills they’re already using in their job.
Over the last 10 years, QA have advanced over 30,000 careers through our digital apprenticeships. An apprenticeship is a modern, hands-on way to take the next step in your career, develop your skills and knowledge to a higher level and gain a recognised qualification – all the way up to a Master’s Level. The training is completely free as it’s funded by your employer.
Whether you see yourself as an expert in DevOps, Data Analysis, Network Engineering, Digital Transformation or Cyber Security – we can get you there with:
• A Level 3 or 4 apprenticeship in IT Systems and Networking, Software Development, Cyber Security, Data Analysis, DevOps and Digital Marketing
Did you know you can also earn a degree through an apprenticeship? We offer bachelor’s and master’s degree apprenticeships in: Cyber Security and Digital Solutions.
The QA Academy is a free, training programme that fast-tracks you into a ground-breaking career as an Digital Consultant in only 12 weeks. During your training you’ll build in-demand digital skills and specialise in cutting-edge technologies such as: Software Development, DevOps, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Cloud Native or Pega. You’ll also enhance the soft skills you need to succeed as a Consultant – leadership, project management, communication and more. After you’ve completed your training, you’ll then be deployed as a Tech Consultant and work with organisations across the UK, leading on projects and driving digital transformation. Some of our current Consultants are working with the likes of TalkTalk, Google, Santander, Amazon partners and Government clients.
This opportunity is open to anyone, as long as you can demonstrate a passion for technology and the willingness to learn – we’re looking for tech potential not tech skills.
At QA we offer a variety of tech and Digital Skills Bootcamps, designed to upskill and reskill people across the country in the most in-demand tech skills that employers need to thrive in this new digital-first world.
As part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee and Plan for Jobs, we are delivering four Digital Skills Bootcamps – Cyber Security, Software Development, DevOps and Data Engineering – in virtual settings to help close the digital skills gap.
Teach the Nation to Code workshops are a series of free, one-day interactive workshops specifically designed to help everyone to develop the essential skills needed within the technology world – from Programming and Cloud Technologies to DevOps, Data Management and Salesforce. The workshops are delivered virtually by our industry experts in a way that is easy to understand, regardless of background and level of experience.
These sessions have been designed by QA and are led by some of our trainers who are experts in their respective fields.
We also have a catalogue of over 2,000 courses and certifications in Tech, Agile, Project Management and Leadership, available in the classroom, as live instructor-led virtual training or self-paced online courses.
