Technical Skills
A commitment to excellence is also a commitment to consistency. You will learn the foundations for excellent technical skills for software development, describing and trialing the common patterns in use across many Version 1 projects today. Building this understanding will be fundamental to your development across technical capabilities.
You will be introduced to Agile software development and the practical application of the Scrum framework and Behaviour-Driven Development methodology. The module concludes with a deep dive into Version 1's application of Agile Methodology into large programmes of work, what each person's role is within a team, and how to deliver for our customers in an agile manner.
Soft Skills
Technology consulting is more than just technical skills. You will learn how to effectively work as a team, manage your time, manage customer expectations and develop effective communication skills. Learning and continually developing these skills will allow you to drive your career forward alongside your technical development.
Creative Thinking
You will develop your tools to think for yourself, encourage entrepreneurial behaviours and consider the best approach to problem-solving. The ability to think creatively is essential in understanding and learning new technologies. We consider the best solution for our customers and always aspire to utilise leading technologies to meet our customers' needs in the most efficient way possible.
