Framework Training has a strong track record of providing a solid introduction into the working world for technical graduates, and the opportunity to learn and gain valuable hands-on experience in a supportive, friendly and sociable training environment.
We know how vital it is for our clients to invest in their talented grads; not only to provide them with the high-quality, professional training essential for their roles, but to embed them within the organisation’s culture and guide them on the right path to a successful career.
We take our graduate training programmes seriously; after all, your new hires could well be the next leaders and their creative ideas and unique insights are valuable to your business.
Taking the time to get graduates up to speed, rather than throwing them in at the deep end and expecting them to sink or swim, can be hugely impactful. A meaningful experience can enhance their employability and sends a strong message to a new graduate that they’re valued.
Our training has a ‘softer’ side, it’s less transactional and focuses on getting the best out of the delegates; helping them to work cohesively. It’s fun and social and offers the chance for delegates to meet the people they’ll be working with for the next few years and building a culture of togetherness as a team.
Planning is key and we work closely with you to get to know your company, culture and your delegates' individual needs; designing a programme that aligns seamlessly with the brief.
It starts with a meeting with our expert instructor and client to discuss content and what to include. We then whittle this down to key requests to keep the content and practical tasks relevant.
We ensure a common thread runs through the programme so graduates learn about building small blocks that will fit together and create an overall architecture.
Our team of expert instructors blend both commercial and academic experience and make the sessions light-hearted and fun. They have substantial experience teaching groups, and are highly skilled at maintaining contact with each graduate; providing extra support and encouragement and understanding their individual needs.
This is particularly useful for graduate training schemes, where the focus is on creating a community and fostering effective group work as well as developing technical skills.
Graduate training schemes are delivered face to face or online or a mixture of both. They are normally delivered over a period of two to four weeks, and involve between five and ten delegates with computer science or other STEM backgrounds. Java used to be the most frequent language choice for our Graduate Training Schemes but this has now been superseded by Python.
Our instructors apply a Socratic learning approach, and can look over delegates’ shoulders (virtually or in the training room) to observe them developing and offer coaching and encouragement.
Graduates participate in a ‘show and tell’ session with the opportunity to demonstrate what they've learned from their project work and take questions from a technical audience.
We’ve developed a robust, flexible framework to ensure we provide maximum value. We have open conversations with our clients and work together to maximise their available budget. This could be including half-day sessions and guided practical sessions that may not require full instructor delivery.
We believe it’s what happens after the training that's key; this is when the graduates integrate into the business, apply what they’ve learnt and can generate the most value.
Our graduate training schemes offer plenty of opportunities for practical work, allowing delegates the chance to tackle an issue or task themselves, with support and coaching from their instructor.
In our training sessions, we mirror the modern development practices that graduates will be using at work in the real world, teaching them CI/CD among others and putting all the practical examples into a GitHub repository; ensuring that how it looks in the training room is how it looks when they are sitting at their desk.
One of our core goals is to do everything we can to ease the transition from training to work.
Feedback is gathered formally and promptly at the end of each programme and we obtain this as early as we can. We also obtain feedback from our instructors on an informal basis (which stays internally), asking them to conduct a qualitative assessment of each delegate’s progress.
We have found this to be invaluable as it provides an opportunity to flag any concerns that could be easily addressed or identify if any additional support is required for certain delegates to avoid them becoming disengaged.
Instructors are vital to the entire process and their post-course retrospective is greatly valued.
Informed Solutions - we've been delivering their annual graduate training schemes since 2018.
They approached Framework Training to shape and deliver a two-week Software Engineering ‘Bootcamp’ that would give technical and non-technical Graduates alike an accelerated introduction to software development best practice. The goals of the training were to:
With a rich and varied tech stack to maintain, plus rapid growth and diversification on the agenda, the tech-and-talent challenge for OVO has many parts to it. How can it drive business growth without compromising on all it delivers already or has in development? How can it draw in, inspire and foster new talent while inspiring its current team to deliver its services, systems and processes as they scale up?
“All the detailed discussion with Framework about OVO’s technical and logistical requirements meant the training programme quickly took shape. To participants it’s now known as the OVO Bootcamp.”
