Accelerated Learning Programs has so far been a success in the US with many satisfied clients and candidates. Based on the lessons learned from our US colleagues and workshops with some of the best teachers in Sweden we’ve created a custom made curriculum tailored for the Swedish IT-industry. The education is conducted in boot camp style during three intense months. The participants are carefully chosen in a rigorous recruiting process, making sure they have the right abilities and motivation to go through with this incredibly intense education. During three months the participants learn the basic technical skill set (depending on the program) to be able to start working right after the program ends. Besides the technical competence they also learn soft skills as project methods, presentation skills and agile methodologies.
After the program the participants have at least 500 hours of actual coding experience and are ready to take on the role as junior IT-consultants. Our appreciated ”try and hire” model gives our customers the opportunity to source future stars while maintaining full flexibility.
So far we have focused our programs on IT and software development in particular. We do however firmly believe that the concept would be equally effective within other areas.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Motivation is more important than previous experience when we decide who to accept into our programs. We are looking for candidates that are ambitious and has the ability to process large amounts of information in just 12 weeks. To assess this we kick off the application process with cognitive tests and interviews.
Our programs differ from traditional education. At AW Academy, we focus on practical learning with constant feedback and dialog to ensure that your learning curve is as steep as possible.
And it works, thanks to our education method Accelerated Learning. We always base our education in real tasks and projects that are relevant for your future role.

Efter examen blir du tillsvidareanställd som IT-konsult med uppdrag via Academic Work. De flesta av våra konsulter går in i programmeringsroller men som IT-konsult kan du även jobba som applikationskonsult, BI-specialist, teknisk projektledare, webbutvecklare, kravanalytiker osv. Se nedan…
Academic Work har kunder representerade i samtliga branscher och sträcker sig från allt från små startups till produkt/tjänstebolag till stora konsultbolag. I dagsläget har Academy ca 150+ inhyrande kunder och kundstocken växer stadigt. Under första året jobbar du antingen som konsult hos ett och samma företag alternativt på olika konsultuppdrag, det har du till viss utsträckning möjlighet att påverka själv. Efter ca 12 månader har inhyrande företag möjlighet att överrekrytera konsulter från Academy kostnadsfritt och det sker i de flesta av fallen, då är även utbildningsskulden avskriven. Alternativt jobbar du på flera olika konsultuppdrag och då är utbildningsskulden istället avskriven efter ca 24 månader.
