The QA Academy is a free, training programme that fast-tracks you into a ground-breaking career as an Digital Consultant in only 12 weeks. During your training you’ll build in-demand digital skills and specialise in cutting-edge technologies such as: Software Development, DevOps, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Cloud Native or Pega. You’ll also enhance the soft skills you need to succeed as a Consultant – leadership, project management, communication and more. After you’ve completed your training, you’ll then be deployed as a Tech Consultant and work with organisations across the UK, leading on projects and driving digital transformation. Some of our current Consultants are working with the likes of TalkTalk, Google, Santander, Amazon partners and Government clients.

This opportunity is open to anyone, as long as you can demonstrate a passion for technology and the willingness to learn – we’re looking for tech potential not tech skills.

Your journey 1. Apply 

Good news, QA’s application process is different – no CV’s, covering letters or awkward assessment centres.

Our process gives you a glimpse into the world of a tech company and helps you understand what sort of situations and scenarios you might be faced with as a consultant.

We’re interested in what motivates you, what you are passionate about and how you handle certain situations - so there are no wrong answers. We all respond to situations differently and the process intends to help QA understand you. We’ll even send you a detailed feedback report afterwards that lists out your key strengths and identified areas for development.

  2. Develop your skills

You’ll start your training in our Academy. Your training is designed to develop your technical and business expertise – so you can be a successful digital consultant.

3. Specialise

Our experts assess your strengths and skills and match them to our expected customer needs. We tailor our training programmes so you're fully skilled in the right technology before you start work.

4. Employment

After your training, the aim is that you will work for QA, but you will be onsite with one of our customers. We'll support you and develop your technical skills – keeping your knowledge fresh.
