Amazon Web Services (AWS) are proud to introduce the AWS re:Start programme!
AWS re:Start brings together AWS Partner Network (APN) partners and customers to offer job opportunities to 1,000 people as part of the programme.
Participants who join the programme will complete 8 to 12 weeks of technical training, resulting in the AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials certification. The training is designed to provide you with job-ready talent for entry-level cloud operations roles.
As well as learning essential technical skills, we also believe it's important for students to be ready for the culture of the workplace. That's why we have included training in softer skills such as communication, time management and teamwork.
“From an employers perspective, AWS re:Start gives us engaged individuals with core skills that we can develop into fully rounded DevOps Engineers. Given the talent pool available from other channels is small, expensive and highly competitive, we know that nurturing our own talent is the only way we can scale to our aspirations. The AWS re:Start programme is proving to be a great first step for this.”
Alan Richards, Head of DevOps, KPMG
“I think the AWS re:Start programme is an unparalleled opportunity for service leavers. The military equips you with a huge array of transferrable skills and AWS re:Start is the perfect introduction to this industry. I can say with all honesty that I wish I had this education as I kicked off my career at Virgin Money.”
Ross Boyd MBE, Digital Product Owner, Virgin Money
“The SRE / DevOps Market place is a contractor heavy, demand driven space. AWS re:Start has presented us with access to talent we might otherwise have overlooked who will grow with us as we build our business. We are looking for people with a passion and desire to learn - previous technical experience is not always relevant. It has been hugely rewarding to see the difference this programme is making already.”
Chris Livermore, Head of SRE team, Hive
