About Us

Originally based in London - which is where we continue to run our public scheduled courses - a few years after starting up we made the decision to move our respective families into more rural settings, and set up our administrative offices in the beautiful Wiltshire village of Aldbourne.

When we look out the window, we often see cows. Which is nice!

The team has grown since then and we've even got a canine office assistant, Ted. He's the real MVP.

We are always happy to navigate around the country for client visits and events, and we're regularly in the capital to ensure our courses are running smoothly.

Please let us know if you'd like us to come and meet up for a chat about your organisation's training plans, it's always nice to meet face to face.

Framework was launched on the world in 2010. From the outset, we’ve sought to deliver the very best technical education to help our clients to get ahead: training with real business value and relevance in a fast-moving space.

Nearly a decade on, we are still just as passionate about the application of technology and have an even better understanding of our clients' commercial and staff-development challenges.

Every one of our bespoke, high-value training programmes is delivered by expert instructors and constructed to improve understanding and processes on all kinds of development projects.

These days our courses are somewhat biased towards those emerging technologies with the potential to be enterprise game-changers, but all the mainstays of programming in 2018 are well-represented. It’s a varied and beautiful world, and we’ve got it covered.

If you're reading this and thinking you would like to come and work with us, we're hiring!

We are registered with the UK Register of Learning Providers - our UKPRN is 10049044. We are also registered with a number of public sector procurement portals.

We are always happy to work with customers who have specific on-boarding requirements, just let us know if you need us to supply extra information or work with your procurement department.

Your data privacy and security is of paramount importance to us. We take great efforts to ensure the correct treatment of your information.

We're a certified Cyber Essentials scheme member, which also helps us to comply with private and public sector tendering policies.

It's probably also worth mentioning we have been running our site on SSL / https for many years, and all credit card transactions are conducted securely by our processor, Stripe, which has an excellent track record and Level 1 PCI DSS certification.

Meet the team

Tom Walker

Read Bio

Tom started off his IT career back in ’97 working in (and later running) customer support for a popular multimedia publishing company. It was simultaneously very rewarding and highly draining, but he looks back on his time on the helpdesk with great fondness.

The move into technical training came naturally – although it was difficult at first to shake off the pavlovian reaction to incoming phonecalls. From here his voyage into geekhood was unavoidably hastened.

Outside the office, Tom divides his time between his family (he’s outnumbered 4:1 in the battle of the sexes), drumming along to old jazz / funk records, writing electronic music, reading sci-fi, and feeding his video game addiction. Tom can order a beer, express gratitude, and apologise profusely in at least 10 different languages.

Ian Watson

Read Bio

After graduating from the Royal Northern College of Music and subsequently working as a freelance classical double bass player, Ian spent 20 years working in software services with the last 10 years in the software development training sector.

A passion for all things computer-related was sparked by receiving a ZX81 for his 9th birthday which was followed by a chain of much-loved home computers, most of which he still has.

Pleasant distractions from work include his young family, his guitars, way too many books, an obsession with cooking, fixing old cars, and a life-long love of sailing (both armchair and the real thing).
