Agap2IT is developing five training programs integrated in the consultant's Academy and taught by its R&D area. Aimed at professionals and undergraduate students, national and international, the training foresees an integration in research projects and development of innovative solutions.
Lisbon, 02 July 2018 - agap2IT Academy is developing its most comprehensive training program to date, guided by the consultant's Research & Development (R&D) area and open to students from various national and international colleges. This is also the moment for the launch of an innovative agap2IT Ambassador program that serves as a bridge between the academic community and the consultancy context.
The implemented training program integrates five training formats simultaneously for a total of 20 trainees, from Instituto Superior Técnico, Faculty of Science and Technology, Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa, Instituto Politécnico de Setúbal, Instituto Politécnico de Beja, the University of Edinburgh and Telecom SudParis.
For Ricardo Schiller Pinto, responsible for the Academy and Director of R&D agap2IT, “We are permanently in contact with academic institutions and young professionals, in order to identify, in the context of consultancy, how we can develop skills and enhance the sharing of knowledge and innovation. The training programs, carried out within the scope of the Academy, aim to make this approach, within the scope of R&D projects, with the guidance of agap2IT mentors and with the potential to develop innovative solutions."
The trainings to be developed by the agap2IT Academy, include Mini Academies, with a duration of one and a half months of practical training and a week of theoretical training, aimed at a wide range of professionals; Academies, with three months of practical training and a week of theory, only for graduates; End-of-course Curricular Internships e International Interns, both lasting three months.
These are essentially practical courses. They comprise a week of theoretical training, with the remaining time allocated to the development of R&D projects in technological areas such as: Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Code Generation, Automatic Data Extraction, Knowledge and Media, and Data Security and Privacy.
For the first time, the Academy also integrates a program of Agap2IT Ambassadors, for the best undergraduate and master students. This program includes a period of one month of training and research in a cutting-edge technological area. In addition, these trainees will “integrate” the agap2IT team during the following year, having the possibility to participate in internal consultancy events and to benefit from a multitude of training actions and receive personalized follow-up by the Human Resources department of agap2IT.
