I enjoyed the fun but informative way the course was taught and all the new skills I learned
I enjoyed meeting all the other girls who were also interested in STEM and I think the teachers were very enthusiastic and interesting
Learning that Agile is applicable in different settings, especially in everyday life and not just in the context of software development. It has prompted me to be more effective and efficient in my working productivity.
I enjoyed learning about the Agile mind set and how to relate it back to my life. Everyone was very friendly and approachable and meeting new people with the same interest and wanting to know more about Agile and how it can help us in our future career
Applications for the next Agile Certification will open in June. We'll be doing short phone interviews during July 2020.
This programme will run in the Summer, daily from 9 am until 5 pm every day. We'll host a graduation event on the final afternoon - parents and guardians will be invited to this.
