with AWS re/start

About the programme

AWS re/Start is a free, full-time skills development programme to jump-start your career working in cloud computing.

AWS re/Start and PeoplePlus have teamed up to offer this free course to people living in Tees Valley. Through scenario-based learning, hands-on labs, and coursework, you will gain the skills you need for an entry-level cloud role. In the programme, you’ll also focus on professional skills such as adaptive communication, time management, CV building, and interview techniques. You will also learn cloud computing skills and prepare for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification with free access to practice and full exams. After you pass the course, PeoplePlus will connect you with employers and help you move into your new working life.

Typical roles include entry-level cloud roles in operations, site reliability and infrastructure support. In these positions you will use Python scripts, support Linux operating systems, operate network infrastructures, deploy basic AWS core services and carry out initial troubleshooting.
