Expert trainers and instructor-led sessions

Bright Network has over ten years of experience nurturing and training students and recent graduates. We have combined this expertise with industry learning professionals, including our Chief Learning Architect, an ex-Microsoft trainer and author with over 2 decades of experience in developing instructional materials.

In turn, throughout the programme, external instructors and working professionals will deliver sessions that reflect the needs of today’s technology teams, as well as setting case work for students to complete.

PEP 6
A supportive cohort of fellow technologists

Each intake will benefit from a collaborative, supportive environment with their fellow technology enthusiasts. Whether it’s working in squads to solve real-world challenges or providing motivation and accountability.

Once a graduate joins the Bright Network Technology Academy they are a member for life. They can check in with their cohort and have the opportunity to return as an alumni instructor, as they continue their journey of lifelong learning.
