DevOps Up-skill: First cohort is LIVE
27 software engineers continue their Journey Through Tech on new 6 part programme

Posted on Jan 29th, 2021 by Sarah

At Tech Returners, we are constantly supporting individuals on their tech career journeys, and we’re so delighted that our new programme - DevOps Up-skill - starts today.

Our Your Journey Through Tech programme continues to support those accessing a career in technology, looking to up-skill or expand their knowledge base and support businesses to develop their tech teams.

Funded by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and ourselves, 27 budding DevOps engineers from across Manchester and Lancashire, including 12 women, are being taught and coached by our CTO and Co-founder James Heggs. The programme is delivered entirely remotely via Google Classroom with 6 sessions over 12 weeks.

We had almost 40 applications from individuals working at leading regional companies including Barclays, AutoTrader, Co-op, Deutsche Bank,, Bosch, Stockport Council, ANS,, Street Group and more! Competition was intense for the 27 places available, and we’re already looking to run further programmes due to the demand.

DevOps has established itself as a key proponent of productive, fast moving and innovative organisations. Businesses adopting DevOps are starting to reap the rewards of faster delivery of features, stable operating environments, improved communication and collaboration and more time dedicated to innovation.

This DevOps Up-skill programme will give tech professionals the confidence and skills to begin to take an active role in the full development lifecycle, from development through to deployment and monitoring, adding value to their organisations and advancing their own careers.

We’re excited to get started today and to see where their journey takes them.
