Autumn Leaf Academy Hub

Autumn Leaf spends a lot of resources, time and effort on providing to the community and encouraging diversity, growth and learning. The AL academy is a programme that promotes organic growth and development with diversity as a driving force. The Academy is an 8 month bridging programme using to provide interns with a strong skills foundation in IT. A ‘flipped’ self-paced and guided best practice learning approach is adopted. Academy graduates are introduced into IT projects through a formal, managed ingestion cycle. A substantial part of the bridging covers life skills and business skills. In our experience bridging requires an holistic approach to ensure that an interns introduction in the corporate world is successful, smooth and rewarding.
