Big ideas. Small communities.
Free educational and work experiences giving you the future skills you need to succeed.
Introducing you to our brave new world, where change is the status quo.
SoftwareONE’s Academy is bridging the gap between education and the workplace by providing talented people educational programmes, internships and employment across the globe. Our training is always free and covers a wide range of skills. It’s open to individuals from conventional educational routes, apprenticeships and also those who are experienced but are seeking a career change.
If you’re ready to invest in yourself, we want to hear from you.
Our Academy is completely free. But that doesn’t mean we compromise on quality. Together with our educational and technology partners, our programmes are packed full of learning experiences, designed to help you maximise your potential and ensure you have access to all the ground-breaking education you need to excel.
We want to help you learn, which is why we’ve compiled relevant learning content into a linear experience, or pathway, to help you ensure you cover all the relevant topics for the programme you’re on. Packed with a diverse range of content across technical, language and soft skills, it’s designed with you in mind.
And the best bit is you can access it any time you like through our online platform, and your mentor will be your in-person guide for any questions.
With our Academy you’re never just left alone and unsupported. When you’re enrolled, you’ll be assigned an industry-leading Tech Mentor who’s already working at SoftwareONE. These wonderful people are subject matter experts, and always on hand to help you, whether you need support, expertise, guidance or a sounding board to ask questions.
Our Academy isn’t just about hypotheticals. We want you to develop your problem solving skills with real-life scenarios, so solving business issues will be a critical part of the learning environment you’ll experience. You’ll gain unique access to key business issues, and through your collaborative team environments, you’ll be encouraged to tackle real project challenges and fail in a safe environment.
Once you’re feeling confident and capable, it’s time to get out of your comfort zone by applying your new learned skills on real client projects. You’ll get opportunities to shadow live projects and solve real business problems in your cohorts, allowing you to transfer your knowledge into practical application.
Throughout the programme every student has a diverse range of experiences designed to help them learn, apply and contextualise their experiences in real workplace environments. This in turn provides students with an incredible, unparalleled education, regardless of their background.
Who the Academy is for
Whoever you are and wherever you are in the world, we want to support you. Our Academy is educationally agnostic. That means that we don’t care whether you’ve just recently graduated from university, have been an Apprenticeship or bootcamp, or have been working in an unrelated industry for the past 20 years.
If you want to develop a career in technology, we want to enable that.
Those seeking a change of scenery
You’re educated and experienced. You have been working for years, but recent times have meant you’ve begun to consider whether your chosen career path is the right one. Use our Academy to delve into the world of technology, enhance on your pre-existing skills and even develop new ones.
We’ll have you ready for a new avenue in no time.
Those in their final year of academia
We’re not just looking for university graduates (although you guys are welcome too). We welcome applications from those who are close to completing their courses at technical colleges, polytechnics and well, any other form of traditional academia.
If you’re currently studying at a community college or enrolled in an apprenticeship, we want to welcome you onto our Academy. It’s generally recommended that you’re at the start of your apprenticeship, or in the final quarter of your educational programme before applying; this will ensure that you maximise on the experience within our Academy and are ready for the workplace.
Having celebrated its first year of activity, the SoftwareONE Academy has announced that it has been accepted by the European Commission and welcomed into the EU Pact for Skills Consortium. The Consortium is a growing community of organisations, training providers, associations and local authorities who all contribute to making up-skilling and re-skilling a reality within Europe.
Our students reap many benefits by joining our training programmes; in many cases it’s not just the structured education you get, but the people you meet and the experiences you have too. We’ll get you workplace ready, prepared for a new career and excited for your future.
SoftwareONE is a global organisation with presence in over 90 countries. Who knows where your career journey will take you!
You’ll never pay a penny
We want to extend support to those who need it most. That’s why our Academy is, and will always remain, completely free for every single student.
No hidden agendas. No sneaky secret price-tags. Just really relevant learning for the workforce of the future.
Getting you workplace ready
Our main goal is to act as a bridge between the worlds of education and employment, because it can often be too big a leap for many. Our programmes are designed to give you the skills and knowledge you’ll need for a future successful career.
New chances and new opportunities
Life is not linear. So why should our educational pathways be? It doesn’t matter if you didn’t go to university. It doesn’t matter that you’ve served your country for the past 15 years and have never worked in an office. With our Academy and structured learning experiences you’ll feel empowered and prepared to enter a new chapter of your life.
Growing more than talent
Here at SoftwareONE we’re passionate about growth, but that isn’t limited to our people. That’s why for every student enrolled and everyone we hire across the world, we’ll also plant a tree in partnership with One Tree Planted. You can feel confident that whilst you’re investing in yourself, we’re investing in your, and our planet’s future.
Why we’re doing this
Here at SoftwareONE, we constantly look to improve and never forget the importance of our people. We’re passionate about supporting the communities. We serve in over 90 countries across the globe, and want to provide support to those who need it most.
