WANdisco Data Academy

The WANdisco Data Academy was the first academy launched in 2019 and exposes students to all areas of the IT business. Students who are part of the WANdisco Data Academy will gain experience of the global company by taking part in masterclasses and workshops ran by various members of WANdisco staff. This includes knowledge and skill development within, Development operations, Customer support, Sales and marketing, and Finance and human resources. David Richards, the CEO of WANdisco and local entrepreneur, was keen to work with the College, based on his own educational experiences. This academy provides students with a fully branded classroom, branded uniform, placement opportunities and a chance to go further by working closely with a global IT company.
