Particularly in the field of IT occupations, specialists are in high demand and highly lacking. There are, however, motivated and inquisitive personalities who would like to develop their talents in the IT field. Without a professional or academic education, though, lateral entry is very difficult.
This is where YouGrow comes into play.
"Businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to find IT professionals. They are desperately looking for IT experts who use them to make the digital transformation. With YouGrow, we have created a suitable solution," says Axel Weber, Director of the YouGrow Academy, describing his mission. "The YouGrow Academy is the high potential talent school for graduates and young professionals with outstanding personality, high cognitive skills, and a strong IT affinity. In our 3-month accelerated learning program, the future consultants undergo practical training to become an agile and hybrid software developer / Java consultant or business analyst. In addition, with 30-40% female participants, we have a female quota in our boot camps, which is well above the German average of 16% for IT professions. That's why YouGrow is also of interest to women who are looking for a career in IT as career changers."
YouGrow also works closely with its partner companies, and much of the training already takes place in the project in the company. The flexible, practice-oriented training concept is what makes it possible to integrate individual requirements of the companies. "This ensures the productivity of our IT consultants from the first working day at our partner companies," emphasizes Weber.
YouGrow offers the participating companies many advantages. It means lean recruiting and outsourcing of human resources development, makes it easier to find the right IT talent and brings flexibility and sustainability to personnel planning.
"You're looking for IT experts? Then you too can take advantage of our successful training program and contact us," invites Weber.
Applicants benefit, too:
"For our graduates, YouGrow means easy entry into IT careers and the best prospects for later careers. Most of our applicants have an academic degree in a neighboring or non-specialized discipline. But after completing their studies they realize that they would like to work in IT. Within a short time, you will not only be qualified as an IT consultant with YouGrow. In our partner companies, they also find direct entry into the profession."
This is also reflected in the great interest in YouGrow Academy: all previous courses were occupied after a short time.
The training is divided into three phases: a 4-week preparation on the basis of training material, an 8-week intensive IT boot camp in Frankfurt, and the final practical phase in the project assignment of up to 18 months in one of the partner companies.
