We are proud of you, we believe in you, we celebrate with you! Take this time to recognise everything you’ve achieved in these challenging and unprecedented times.
The BJSS Academy upskills you to deliver some of Britain’s most high-profile technology projects. It introduces you to the tools and techniques you need to shape your career.
It isn’t often that you find someone starting a fresh career in technology after working in another field for over 20 years. However, despite her initial inexperience, Carla is now one of BJSS’ leading Platform Engineers.
The BJSS Academy, in cooperation with the AWS re:Start programme, retrains ex-armed forces personnel for private-sector technology careers. Carla is an alumnus of this academy. At the age of 18, she joined the Royal Navy as a mechanical engineer. However, after retiring from the navy, Carla found that her skills were too niche for the private sector. She had a choice of retiring or reskilling. She took the courageous decision to reskill through our intensive 12-week training course. She now delivers major platform projects to many of BJSS’ largest clients.
The BJSS Academy was an excellent way for Ryan to start his career as a Software Developer. The University of Glasgow graduate explains:
“There was a mix of abilities and backgrounds in my class, but the BJSS Academy provided a fantastic base for everyone to learn from. My group focused on the design stage of projects including Business Analysis and requirement gathering, Architecture, team communication, and Agile processes. We then learnt about development & testing and learning about the tools that facilitate them, and we closed off with a group hack and social event. It was a terrific month!”
Many of our Alumni tell us how the BJSS Academy has helped them to establish enduring personal and professional relationships, positioning them for rewarding careers in IT and business consultancy. These are some of their stories:
The Academy was a fantastic experience like no other! Four weeks of learning and enhancing my technical and communication skills was topped off by training an AI to recognise the emotions on my colleagues’ faces!
Standout points for me at the BJSS Academy were having the opportunity to tackle activities as a group of people with different skills and backgrounds, and using my learning to create a test automation framework and suite.
Since completing the BJSS Academy, I’ve delivered an external talk on NFT, won European Testing Graduate of the Year and worked on NHS Spine planning and executing the deployment of firmware and package updates across the entire estate.
After having spent a year as a Research Analyst at BJSS, the Academy was a great way for me to gain a deeper and more well-rounded understanding of the work the company does, whilst meeting other people my age. I’m now even more excited and confident to continue my career as a Consultant at BJSS!
Originally from a background of pharmacology and biology, I decided to change careers. On the Science to Data Science Bootcamp, I met the Head of Data Science at BJSS. This meeting turned into a short internship at BJSS, and I then joined BJSS full time. I came for a week with BJSS, and the rest is history.
It was incredible having experienced Developers, Testers and Architects tutoring us. Whether we picked up the topic quickly, or needed more help, we were supported to work at our own speed at all times.
We want you to make the most of your potential. So to help you continue your learning, we’ll help you achieve career-enhancing professional and industry certifications.
You’ll also work closely with other talented BJSSers – sometimes outside of your base location – to deliver advanced technology and consulting solutions to our clients throughout the UK. Not only will this experience allow you to develop your skills, but you’ll also learn new techniques and refine your interests.
