The Instil graduate academy is designed to rapidly prepare graduates (and interns) for life as a software developer. Built around a core of engineering essentials and practical course-work, each academy focuses on the skills and disciplines that will ready your people for developing great software as part of a team.

Out of the box, the academy is delivered as a mix of collaborative project work interspersed with pinpoint training on cloud basics, front-end development, engineering principles and agile development. Heavy emphasis is also placed on baseline best-practices such as clean code, testing, security, data structures, and problem solving.

But of course, everyone's mileage will vary, so how you configure the academy will depend on your context. Do your graduates have prior computing experience? What timescales are you working too? Can you intersperse project work with training (our recommended approach), or do you only have a few weeks to fit everything in?

Whatever your circumstances, we can advise, guide and deliver an academy that will help set your graduates in the right direction.

A course led by an intelligent and knowledgeable instructor who made an effort to find relevant material to answer questions comprehensively. The course itself was concise and mixed the right amount of practical activities and theory.

Garth and Eamonn did as excellent a job in delivering the most simple concepts of Typescript as they did the more tricky and more complex aspects - the exercises were extremely well thought out and helped to solidify my understanding and build my confidence in applying what had been covered in each topic. Many thanks guys!

Slides and materials were great and it was always good to have the worked solution to fall back on. Good knowledgeable trainer.
