Check out our FAQs, which cover everything on our Development Programme, clients, and training.

What training and qualifications are included in the Development Programme?

The training and qualifications provided by Grayce will vary depending on whether you want to specialise in Business Solutions or Digital Solutions. Across both programmes, you will receive training on soft skills, including Leadership and Management, Communicating Change, and Stakeholder Management.

On top of this…

Our Business Solutions Development Programme is designed to give you a solid foundation in change management disciplines. BCS Business Analysis and APMG AgilePM Foundation are just two examples of the core qualifications we offer that equip you with the knowledge to perform any role in the Project Management lifecycle.

Our Digital Solutions Development Programme is designed to give you a solid foundation in Data Analysis, Software Development, or Information Security. On this programme, you will complete the APMG AgilePM Foundation to ensure you have well-rounded commercial knowledge. You will also receive training in the key data analysis programming languages, SQL and Python, and popular visualisation tools, including Tableau and Power BI.

Our Salesforce and SAP Analysts are enrolled on one of the above programmes depending on their specific role. The only difference is that their training is adjusted so that they can also complete certifications relevant to Salesforce or SAP.

As well as the core training mentioned above, we also empower you to drive your own development. In years two and three of the Development Programme, you gain access to a flexible training budget that you can spend on qualifications of your choice. With personalised advice and mentoring, we ensure you choose qualifications that support your future career aspirations.
