Each one of our Apprentices attended the Easter Coding School we held with Software Cornwall at the end of March. This was a great experience for everyone involved, and provided a fantastic introduction to working in a software development team for the twenty-two 15 to 19 year olds who participated!
During their time here at Bluefruit, these young programming enthusiasts will be learning the fundamentals of software testing and development in an Agile environment, and will be taught the importance of putting ‘Quality First’ throughout all their work.
This year, we won the award for Outstanding Commitment to Training in our category at the Excellence in Business Training Awards in Cornwall, so our Apprentices will be benefiting from fantastic learning opportunities that they wouldn’t receive anywhere else, such as weekly internal training from senior engineers, monthly visits from external experts, and several big training events throughout the year.
We can’t wait to start work with the next generation of Cornish software engineers, and hope that they’ll continue their career with us long after their Apprenticeship experience!
