TecAlliance breaks new and at­trac­ti­ve ground in IT training

Das neue Lern­bü­ro der TecAlliance in Weikersheim

The “old eco­no­my” li­kes to ori­en­ta­te its­elf towards the ad­van­ced so­lu­ti­ons of the IT in­dus­try. TecAlliance is de­mons­tra­ting that the re­ver­se can also lead to in­te­res­ting so­lu­ti­ons with the in­tro­duc­tion of a “training work­shop” for up-and-co­m­ing de­ve­lo­pers at the Wei­kers­heim site.
Cus­to­mers and users have quick­ly be­co­me ac­cus­to­med to the fact that mo­dern pro­grams and ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons of­fer more and more and at the same time are in­cre­a­singly com­for­ta­ble to use. On the other hand, this also me­ans that the de­ve­lo­p­ment and pro­gramming of such sys­tems is be­co­m­ing much more com­plex. Alt­hough the ap­pren­ti­ces start their first year of ap­pren­ti­ce­ship and the new stu­dents only with the ba­sics of soft­ware de­ve­lo­p­ment, the ne­cessa­ry know­ledge, ac­cord­ing to Te­cAl­li­an­ce’s ex­pe­ri­ence, can­not be ac­qui­red du­ring the usu­al training pe­ri­od wi­thout in­ten­si­ve su­per­vi­si­on from the outset.

In Wei­kers­heim, the com­pa­ny has fo­cu­sed on an old in­dus­tri­al tra­di­ti­on and is brin­ging tog­e­ther the fu­ture com­pu­ter sci­en­tists in a “training work­shop”: a se­pa­ra­te, geo­gra­phi­cal­ly se­pa­ra­te area, an ex­cel­lent­ly equip­ped “think tank” for 12 par­ti­ci­pants and a se­pa­ra­te in­st­ruc­tor who has been re­crui­ted for the pro­ject. This is li­kely to be a uni­que so­lu­ti­on in the lo­cal IT in­dus­try. This bund­ling of­fers many ad­van­ta­ges com­pa­red to the dis­tri­bu­ti­on of trai­nees among dif­fe­rent departments:
The ap­pren­ti­ce is the fo­cus of at­ten­ti­on and is gi­ven in­ten­si­ve sup­port – he or she can­not be ous­ted from the day-to-day busi­ness of the su­per­vi­sing employees
The usu­al tran­si­ti­ons bet­ween de­part­ments are no lon­ger ne­cessa­ry, the trans­fer of know­ledge is con­ti­nuous and de­s­pi­te the al­most 60% in­cre­a­se in the num­ber of trai­nees, it can be gua­ran­te­ed that all par­ti­ci­pants re­cei­ve the same con­tent at a high level.
Trai­nees and stu­dents can bet­ter com­mu­ni­ca­te with each other and help each other, even over the cour­se of a year or more
The exis­ting teams will also be re­lie­ved of the workload, as the­re is no lon­ger any need for ba­sic training and fu­ture em­ployees can be as­si­gned more ef­fi­ci­ent­ly la­ter on. To en­su­re that the prac­ti­cal re­le­van­ce for fu­ture IT spe­cia­lists is not lost, the­re is a men­to­ring pro­gram­me with trai­nees from the 2nd/3rd year of ap­pren­ti­ce­ship. They can con­tri­bu­te their on-the-job ex­pe­ri­ence and help pre­pa­re for the exams.

As it is ap­pro­pria­te for a “work­shop”, the “han­di­c­raft” is not ne­glec­ted eit­her: pre­sen­ta­ti­on tech­ni­ques and selec­ted pro­ject ma­nage­ment me­thods, such as Agil ac­cord­ing to Scrum, which are par­ti­cu­lar­ly sui­ta­ble for soft­ware de­ve­lo­p­ment, are also trai­ned and in­ten­si­ve­ly ap­p­lied there.
Ac­cord­ing to this, the world is li­ter­al­ly open to trai­nees and dual stu­dents: job ro­ta­ti­on with as­sign­ments at the va­rious TecAlliance lo­ca­ti­ons, in­ter­na­tio­nal prac­ti­cal as­sign­ments and stu­dy pro­gram­mes ex­ten­ding all the way to the Far East and coope­ra­ti­on with col­leagues or fel­low stu­dents of dif­fe­rent na­tio­na­li­ties are not only at­trac­ti­ve, but also a pre­re­qui­si­te for kee­ping pace with the pro­fes­sio­nal world today.
We are con­vin­ced that with our crea­ti­ve ap­proa­ches and in­ter­na­tio­nal ori­en­ta­ti­on, TecAlliance will not only si­gni­fi­cant­ly in­cre­a­se the qua­li­ty and ef­fi­ci­en­cy of our training and stu­dies, but also si­gni­fi­cant­ly in­cre­a­se the at­trac­ti­ve­ness of our work. For 2018, TecAlliance of­fers a fur­ther 25 training and stu­dy opportunities.
