KPMG’s technology engineering grads celebrate after completing bespoke Northcoders bootcamp programme

Northcoders – one of the UK’s leading independent providers of training programmes for software coding and data engineering – has successfully delivered a tailored 14-week software development programme to KPMG’s new 19-strong Technology Engineering Graduate intake. This is the first time the two companies have collaborated.

As KPMG’s onboarding partner, Northcoders curated the bespoke programme that covered the core fundamentals of building websites and mobile phone apps as well as a specific module on CloudOps. 

The core aim was to upskill the graduates and improve their tech capabilities before they are deployed and start working with the firm’s clients across the UK. The three year-long blended KPMG Technology Engineering Graduate Programme is designed to support graduates on their journeys for a successful career in technology. They have opportunities to learn and develop a wide range of hands-on technical skills and to help deliver successful outcomes for clients.

The Northcoders x KPMG course curriculum built their confidence with JavaScript laying the foundations for them to be able to handle data and create interactive websites and apps, utilising their newly found semantic HTML and responsive CSS skills. It then moved on to give them an understanding of test-driven and object-oriented development, using Node.js to run code for the back end, and focus on dealing with asynchronous programming as well as APIs, databases and SQL and CloudOps. 

The latter part of the onboarding academy then moved into UX design and React, the most in-demand front-end frameworks, which they used to create entire complex front-ends for their website and app projects. The final project phase consolidated all that they had learned and saw groups work together to create a completed app which they showcased at their graduation.

Amul Batra – chief operating officer at Northcoders – said: “We were delighted to work with KPMG as their onboarding partner and help them achieve both their people development and business goals. The firm’s Technology Engineering Graduate Programme is a truly innovative scheme that is all about helping the best people build lasting careers in the tech sector. That aligns perfectly with we what we are trying to achieve as business. We are really looking forward to now seeing the KPMG x Northcoders cohort flourish as they forge ahead in their chosen specialisms.”

Yasmin De Nardo – Head of Connected Technology Academy at KPMG – added: “It has been fantastic working with Northcoders over the past few months and to see the entire cohort graduate. The KPMG x Northcoders programme’s varied curriculum has advanced each person’s tech capabilities and given them new, valuable skills which they can apply to their roles within the business. That is something to celebrate as we continue to inspire, educate and empower young tech talent.”
