Programme Overview

Agile and Scrum methodologies are now a central framework for software development. 

Jobseekers who have acheived a thorough understanding of these new approaches are more likely to succeed in interviews. Therefore the ISA Software Skillnet is offering a free programme for people who would like to enter ICT or software careers.

Using the fundamentals of the Scrum product development methodology, the course will introduce delegates to Agile concepts and demonstrate how these can be used to empower teams and deliver high quality software quickly while retaining the ability to respond to change.

The course is interactive, with presentation sessions interspersed with group exercises and discussions.
