Who is the programme aimed at?

The Cloud Academy is a bespoke DVLA programme that has been designed to introduce new entrants to a career in cloud engineering. The programme is aimed at individuals with an aptitude to learn and a keen passion for IT.

What is the development programme?

The Cloud Academy programme is a 2-year programme where you will gain and develop your cloud skills whilst benefitting from the experience and knowledge of our ITS staff. Those on the programme will work towards a number of industry recognised certifications, helping them secure the knowledge and skills for a long-term career in cloud engineering.

The programme kicks off with an intense 12-week boot camp. Not only was this our first cloud programme, but it was also the first virtual programme we’ve delivered.

We are looking for people who:

  • have an interest in IT
  • are committed to the development programme
  • have enthusiasm to learn
  • enjoy working with others and being part of a team
  • are going to make the most of the time spent with us

There are no formal entry requirements.
