Cloud & Sustainability

In partnership with Coventry University, the Cloud & Sustainability Skills Bootcamp includes learning about cloud foundations, networking, python programming, databases and the AWS services both through theory lessons and lab sessions.

The latter half of the bootcamp will look at climate change and the mechanics of global warming, including the risks faced by businesses as a result of climate change.  You will learn the sort of things businesses can do to adapt and reduce the impact of climate change & greenhouse gas emissions, as well as business ethics, and the fundamentals of Carbon Accounting, environmental management systems, and the law surrounding climate change and global action.


Over 16 weeks, you will also get the chance to take part in two capstone projects to put your skills to the test, as well as a client-facing project provided by one of our partner organisations.


This course also gives you career support to prepare you for an interview and a tech career after the course in a number of junior tech roles, which includes a guaranteed interview upon completion of the programme.
