Newtyne Academy

What is the Academy?

The Newtyne Academy is an integrated consultancy and training programme designed to provide organisations with a skilled pool of accredited graduates who are immediately able to add value.

The programme involves sourcing highly numerate graduates, or those with similar skills, and supporting them through a fully comprehensive learning programme. The learning is designed to  address a wide range of technical requirements delivered based on established and emerging technologies giving learners the skills they need for core data manipulation, analytics and data presentation.

After the learning programme is complete, graduates will then be hosted within organisations where they undertake a 12-month placement.

At the end of the placement, the organisation then has the choice of:

  • Transferring the graduate to the organisation permanently.
  • Extending the placement.
  • Ceasing the placement.
