"A certified testing course is the only external thing but there's lots of internal training. There's a big focus on development and education."
Entry level, Enfield, North London
"I recently went on an effective communications course that, despite my initial cynicism, was a lot of fun and helped me learn a whole lot. On a day-to-day level, managers and mentors all work closely with new starters to train them to do their job. You'll be contributing very early on thanks to this."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"All of our training sessions are provided in-house. I have attended various programmes that benefit my day-to-day role."
Experienced, Enfield, North London
"I've been trained (without a formal course) on how to write C, C++ and Python code. I've been sent on a formal two-day course to learn effective communication. I also attended a course, which was one hour a week for ten weeks, where I learned the basic ideas behind coding (how to make code readable etc). Beyond that, I am trained each day through giving assessed presentations etc."
Graduate, London
"Training is mostly on-the-job. You have a dedicated mentor who will answer any questions you have for your first few months."
Entry level, Edinburgh
"Most of my training has happened while on the job as I am introduced to new features/aspects of our systems. There are some more formal courses that you take during your first few months at the company but these tend to be aimed at softer skills such as communication and a general understanding of what the company does and how it all fits together."
Graduate, Enfield, London
"There's very good training with formal courses on communication and day-to-day training in coding. It is personalised to the employee's level of experience so there is no rigid training programme. This dies down after the first few months though so it would be good for the training programmes to continue."
Graduate, Enfield
"My manager and teammates are very helpful and understanding and there is a multitude of learning resources. I feel there could be a more structured graduate scheme for new starters."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"Alongside formal internal training, you are assigned a mentor for your first nine months who commits up to 50% of their time to helping your development and training."
Graduate, Enfield
"There's one-to-one mentoring with an experienced team member and a series of lecture-style training sessions."
Graduate, Edinburgh
