Technology Consultancy Program
We pay for you to complete 12 weeks of intensive tech training, and will guarantee you a job at the end of it. We’ll hire you directly and place you with one of our clients as a Tech Consultant – think Accenture, Deutsche Bank, PwC, WooliesX and more...
The Technology Consultancy Program is a fully funded program.
You will receive 12 weeks of full-time fully funded tech training. Upon successful completion of your training you'll receive a conditional job placement. We'll look to place you as a Junior Developer into one of our Australian clients. The role could be based in an office, hybrid or remote.
This program is delivered fully remotely via our online training platform. You’ll be taught in real-time, so there’ll be plenty of opportunities to interact, ask questions, and get to know your fellow students.
This program is 12 weeks long, and you’ll be training Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm (you'll get any public holidays within this period off). Your training period will start on a set, allocated date, which cannot be changed.
You’ll train in squads of 8-16 people. It’s super interactive, so you’ll work closely with the other trainees and the coaches.
You won’t get paid, but your training will be free! Your salaried role as a Tech Consultant will start once you’re working on your first client project.
The training is very intensive, and requires a lot of time and brain power! Some trainees keep part-time jobs, but you should be prepared to be putting maximum effort into the course.
If you are placed into a role and you're unhappy, we do our best to understand why that is and help – through speaking with client, providing coaching or additional upskilling. We would want the process to be a positive one for both you and the client, so we’d do our very best to help and sort out the situation. If we think the client is being unfair/providing a bad environment, we’d withdraw you, otherwise we’d work with you get you back on track and feeling happy in the workplace. It is so important for us that you are happy.
The cost of the training, if not funded by us, is $20,000. In regards to leaving employment during the first 18 months with us, you would then be expected to pay back the training fee on a pro rata basis.
Your super and benefits will come through us, so these benefits include: Bonus holiday for strong attendance, employee discounts, eyecare vouchers, season ticket loan, cycle to work scheme, tech loan and client referral scheme.
If there is more than one job offer we would of course consider your input, but we'd also bare in mind what we feel is best for future growth too.
You don't need any qualifications or previous experience of coding to join _nology. Any coding experience that you have gained through studies or self-learning may prove beneficial in the earlier stages of the course, but is by no means necessary. What's more important is that you've done enough research into a career in coding to know that it's the right path for you.
Having a mathematical background may help you when learning technical coding concepts and logical problem-solving, however, you do not have to be a strong mathematician to learn how to code. More than half of our trainees come from a non-STEM background.
You must be at least 18 years old to join the _nology course. There is no upper age limit and we encourage people from all ages to fuel their interests in coding! There is a 27 year age difference between our youngest and oldest trainees (so far!).
Step 1: Submit an application through our website.
Step 2: We'll set up a phone interview to talk in more detail about your interests in starting a tech career.
Step 3: We'll then invite you to take part in a coaching assessment with a _nology Coach. In this session, you'll learn some basic coding and work through a series of challenges.
Step 4: Once both the Admissions and Coaching Teams are confident that you're a strong candidate for the course, you'll be offered a place on an upcoming intake.
Our course is right for anyone who has a passion for technology and wants to join the digital revolution! Applicants are selected based on their attitude, work ethic, ability to problem-solve, creativity and coachability. Provided that you possess these qualities, we can teach you the tricky tech stuff.
