OutSystems Launches First-of-Its-Kind Low-Code School to Train New Professional Low-Code Developers

OutSystems , provider of the number one low-code application development platform , today announced that it has opened the first-ever Low-Code School  in the UK, increasing career opportunities for those not currently versed in low-code application development.

 

Following the success of the OutSystems Low-Code School in Portugal, the free-of-charge course is open to any developer with at least three years of professional experience in web or mobile coding languages. The first series of extra-curricular sessions will be held at the OutSystems London office on weekdays between 25th November and 9th December 2019 in the evenings and will be delivered by a certified OutSystems trainer.

 

The Low-Code School has been devised to plug the UK coding skills gap. Demand for OutSystems professionals continues to grow exponentially, with an estimated 600 job opportunities for professionals versed in low-code application development available across the country.

 

OutSystems customers such as the UK’s largest property marketing group FocalAgent , Capita Consulting  and Thomas Miller  have already endorsed the Low-Code School, identifying it as an ideal way to hire new low-code professionals. The Low-Code School will enable OutSystems to successfully train more than 100 professionals before the end of 2019.

 

“Being an OutSystems customer has opened up opportunities for Focal to develop applications in a modern and visual manner. The platform challenges traditional mindsets related to software development, preparing Focal for the future of application development,” said Rolf Groenewold, Co-Founder and Managing Director of FocalAgent. “As with any business, the greatest challenge is always talent and the OutSystems initiative to stimulate job creation in the low-code market will help Focal attract a new wave of low-code professionals and continue to innovate and remain the market leader in our segment.”

 

“We have substantial plans to build the best-in-class OutSystems consulting ecosystem,” said Patrick Gormley, Consulting Services Lead at Capita Consulting. “This process will be streamlined by the OutSystems Low-Code School, which applies a refreshing and effective approach to ensure the best low-code talent doesn’t go unnoticed.”

 

The course consists of two weeks of OutSystems technology training, with free access to an online Associate Developer Exam upon completion of the course. Completing the exam will increase the marketability of the individual as qualified in low-code and will open the opportunity to meet potential employers within the OutSystems community who are hiring new developers.

 

“The number of low-code developers in the UK is far outstripped by the requirements of OutSystems customers, who are looking to hire fresh talent to keep up with burgeoning demand,” explains Garry Larner, Regional Director Financial Services and Insurance at OutSystems. “These unprecedented market conditions have led to the creation of the Low-Code School, which is a game-changer in terms of reskilling existing programmers in the way of low-code and the OutSystems platform, opening up new opportunities for those who want to take a different career direction.”

The Low-Code School is part of OutSystems wider corporate strategy to vastly increase the number of professionals skilled in the low-code language. It complements OutSystems global portfolio of online and classroom-based low-code bootcamps, which teach budding developers everything from the low-code basics and how to navigate the OutSystems ecosystem, to advanced application development.

 

“This Low-Code School has positioned OutSystems as the undisputed leader in educating existing IT professionals in the way of low-code. The demands of our customers and the significant growth of the technology has enabled us to create a new pool of talent and do all we can for those looking to move into application development and design,” adds Larner.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In May 2020, FE News had over 120,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
