background

We created _nology to solve the following challenges for our clients

  • The growing technical skills gap in the UK and globally has affected companies’ ability to hire
  • The huge diversity gap in the tech industry, which leads to a lack of diversity in tech teams and has a knock-on effect on creativity and ability to solve out-of-the-box challenges
  • Hard-to-find skill sets in juniors such as, Cloud, DevOps, Modern Tooling, and more

Our model helps to solve all of the above by

  • Attract – We attract top talent through a competency-based, blind CV assessment process. This results in increased diversity – our cohorts are typically 48% female and over 63% ethnically diverse
  • Train – Our in-house coaches deliver full-time training for up to 3 months. This is hands-on, relevant, and modern training in Java, C#, Python, DevOps, Cloud, Testing, BA, Data Analysis and more…
  • Support – We support our _nologists for an 18-month period to help them grow technically and professionally. They then join the client as a successful, mid-level Developer. Clients then have the option to turn _nologists into permanent employees, allowing for greater strength in hard-to-find skill sets, as well as increased diversity
  • Bespoke Offerings – We can upskill your existing workforce with your required coding languages and tools, or we can train a new, bespoke team in the exact skill set you need. Please get in touch with us to discuss your bespoke requirements

HOW IT ALL WORKS

Attract – Our award-winning Marketing team use a range of bespoke, targeted attraction campaigns to reach the highest potential people from a diverse range of backgrounds. These include paid digital campaigns, with clients, internal retraining programmes, and CSR partnerships. Find out more here

Assess  – We assess applicants through a competency-based, blind CV process and select candidates based on their mindset and capability rather than education or experience. This includes:

  • A 3-stage assessment process to gain access to the programme, including a solo interview, aptitude test, and group assessment that involves a JavaScript lesson and group problem-solving activity
  • 2 weeks of pre-course digital learning to cover the basics of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

This allows us to assess key skills like intellectual horsepower, logic, pattern-finding, learning on the fly, perseverance and problem solving which are all necessary to thrive during tech training and employment.

Train  – Training is delivered by our in-house team of expert instructors over a full-time 12-week period. All curriculum has been written by _nology based on the feedback our clients provide about what skills they need. This is hands-on, in-demand, modern training in Software Development and Cloud Engineering, including:

  • A 3-month, full-time tech training accelerator
  • Practical project delivery from day 1
  • Hands-on coding
  • Daily stand-ups to review any issues
  • Ongoing quality assessments, including technical coding, presentations, group projects, and interviews

View our Software Engineering curriculum here and our Cloud Engineering curriculum here.

Support  – During training, the Talent Team conduct biweekly 1-2-1s. _nologists then join our clients for their full-time 18-month placements as well-rounded technical team members ready to hit the ground running. Our _nology Talent Team is on-hand to assist _nologists during their training and placement to help them grow technically and professionally, relieving reliance on line managers whilst on site, including:

  • _nologist check-ins at weeks 1 and 2, and monthly thereafter
  • _nologist reviews take place at the end of weeks 1 and 2, and monthly thereafter
  • Client reviews are conducted at 1 month and quarterly thereafter
  • Pay rises every 6 months
  • Technical support from our instructors, bolstered by their own individual Pluralsight account

After a successful 18-month placement, there’s the option for the _nologists to turn into permanent employees.

Bespoke Offerings: We can upskill your existing workforce with your required coding languages and tools, or we can train a new, bespoke team in the exact skill set you need. Please get in touch with us to discuss your bespoke requirements.

FAQs

Testimonials

Dan Jones

Junior Web Developer

“The course has been challenging so far, but in a positive, growth way! We are only 4 weeks in and already I can feel a complete shift in mindset starting to occur. You have to be patient, but slowly you start to see the little wins, reinforcing that you are making progress somewhere. Although I enjoy most aspects of the course, the stand out aspect, for me, has to be the quality of training. Liam truly creates an environment where failure is encouraged and learnt from, giving you the time and opportunity to explore, ultimately building confidence in your ability.”

Emily Wilmott

Software Developer Consultant - Zego

“The start I had at _nology has given me the base to build a successful career. Even though I am no longer on the course, I get a huge amount of support as a consultant. Following my dream into becoming a software developer has been scary but with _nology there to help, it has been rewarding and extremely fun.”

Kat Kolomycew

“There have been only a few times where I could say that I felt like I was exactly where I was supposed to be in a given moment of my life, and this is one of them. The challenge is on, the people are awesome, and the atmosphere is fun.”
