This accredited course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course and provides an understanding of how the method works in practice. The course completes the coverage of the contents of Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2®, the official manual of the method, which was published by the Cabinet Office (CO) in 2009. The CO's manual explains in its forward: "Today, complex projects often involve several organisations working together in partnership or through contractual agreements to achieve the objectives. PRINCE2® provides a common language between organisations and with external suppliers. It also allows a focus on the Business Case, providing a mechanism to define what the project is trying to achieve, and the rationale and business justification for it." At the end of the course a 2.5-hour multiple choice test takes place, which leads to the sought-after PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate. Course content The course is designed to put the PRINCE2® concepts into practice and to prepare for the test that leads to the PRINCE2® Practitioner certificate. The course begins where the Foundation course left off by going into more detail on each of the themes and processes that make up the method. By the end, the all-important fourth element of the method, which demands that the method is always tailored to fit the project’s environment, is explained and demonstrated. The topics covered include: overview of PRINCE2® the seven PRINCE2® themes the seven PRINCE2® processes tailoring PRINCE2® Teaching and assessment As the practitioner course follows on the PRINCE2® Foundation course, where the method, its philosophy and its terminology are introduced, it focuses on the more intricate aspects of the method. Based on a case study, the method is put into practice through a series of challenging questions that mirror the questions of the formal test. The course consists of a series of interleaved lectures and seminars, but this time the emphasis is on the seminars where the method is put into practice with the help of case studies. The lectures are designed to remind how the method operates while the seminars take on the principles and apply them to a well trodden case study. The comprehensive course handbook, containing all the course’s slides, which most students would have met in the foundation course, is used along with the case study which was also introduced prior to this course. By assuming familiarisation with the method, the course can proceed at a pace that helps the visualisation of the method’s concepts. Each seminar ends with sample multiple choice questions that prepare us for the certificate examination. Fees Fees include lectures, lecture materials, two sample examination papers and the examination. Entry Requirements The course is open to anyone with a PRINCE2 ® Foundation certificate. However, candidates should continue to familiarise themselves with the methods manual and study for around five hours before the first day of training. Study is also required between training days. Candidates cannot sit for the Practitioner exam unless they have passed the Foundation exam. [-]

Makers (Junior Web Developer Course)

Makers Academy
Campus 16 weeks Open Enrollment United Kingdom London

In 12 weeks, go from being a novice to a junior web developer with the intensive, coding bootcamp in London [+]

LIFE AT MAKERS Being a student at Makers Academy is a very emotional journey. Eating, sleeping and breathing code becomes a huge part of your life, but looking after your wellbeing is also critical to becoming a great developer. On site we have Dana, our Chief Joy Officer - a certified yoga instructor who runs daily yoga and meditation classes and is here to look after your well being. It’s also important to unwind and bond socially with your cohort. We're surrounded by some of London's quirkiest cafes, yummiest street food and busiest pubs. We also host regular events such as Petcha Kutcha lightning talks, games nights, karaoke nights, as well as organising group activities like climbing, go-karting and going to the theatre. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN PRECOURSE Everything you need to get ready for the main course In the four weeks preceding the full-time course, all students are required to complete a (very important!) part-time PreCourse, which ensures that all of our students get to the required basic level of competence when they enrol at Makers Academy. In the first week, we focus on the foundations: first, the command-line, which is key to navigating around your computer; second, you'll tackle version control using Git and Github. This is followed by learning Ruby syntax through challenges. The PreCourse requires a minimum of 20 hours per week to complete successfully, but the more time you can spend on the PreCourse, the better. Each Friday during the PreCourse, we send out a challenge to help solidify and focus students' learning and check in on their progress. WEEK 1 Test-Driven Development and Object-Oriented Programming The main topics of week 1 are test-driven development and object-oriented programming. By now, students have some experience writing pure Ruby code and are familiar with the functionality of core Ruby classes. This week we start creating our own classes in a test-driven way. The aim of this week is to understand how to structure code using objects. The Friday challenge involves writing a simple object-oriented system of interacting classes. WEEK 2 Further TDD and OOP This week we build a game using test-driven development and object-oriented programming to make sure students understand these important concepts well. We also cover more advanced Ruby and programming topics: lambdas vs procs, composition vs inheritance, iterators and recursion. The Friday challenge involves reimplementing some of the more advanced methods from the Ruby core library. WEEK 3 Introduction to Web Development By now, students are comfortable using Ruby and writing object-oriented code in a test-driven way. In week 3 we focus on the fundamentals of the web: HTTP protocols, the Sinatra framework, HTML & CSS. We also learn how to deploy our code to Heroku and use the development tools in Chrome. The Friday challenge involves building a Sinatra application and deploying it to Heroku. WEEK 4 Databases and User Management It's time to learn how to add a relational database to a Sinatra application using DataMapper. In this week we talk about relational databases, key-value stores and SQL. We also spend a lot of time discussing proper management of user accounts: hashing and salting, choosing appropriate hashing algorithms and mitigating common security risks. Students write a user management system (sign up, sign in, sign out, etc) from scratch, paying special attention to the security aspects. Finally, students also learn how to use Capybara to test-drive web applications. The Friday challenge focuses on relational databases. This is a an important milestone as students now have a full picture of web development. WEEK 5 Front-End Technologies Now that students can build test-driven, secure, database-backed web applications, it's time to start talking about other front-end technologies: JavaScript, jQuery, AJAX and responsive design. Students begin learning their second language: JavaScript, also known as the language of the web. The Friday challenge asks students to reimplement the front-end of one of the most popular websites in the world. WEEK 6 Lab Week This is a less structured week to allow students to consolidate their learning. Students may choose to revisit topics from the previous weeks, catch up on missed work or explore new projects. WEEK 7 Node.js Students expand their knowledge of JavaScript by learning Angular (a popular front-end framework) and Node (JavaScript for the server), combining them to build powerful full-stack applications. The Friday challenge is based on refreshing your Ruby knowledge. WEEK 8 Ruby on Rails Basics In week 8 we start working with Ruby on Rails. By now students have a solid understanding of Ruby, the web (HTTP, HTML, JavaScript, etc) and have experience using databases. Armed with all this knowledge, they find Rails easy to understand as it merely automates what they can do without it. This week we talk about ActiveRecord, the asset pipeline, routing and Rails architecture. The Friday challenge focuses on the basics of Ruby on Rails. WEEK 9 Advanced Ruby on Rails Topics This week we talk about more advanced topics: Websockets, HTML5 APIs, using Bootstrap or Foundation, connecting to various APIs: Stripe, Twilio, etc. The challenge for this week focuses on these topics. WEEK 10 The Final Project By now students are confident junior developers. To put their skills to their test, they build a final project that shows how far they've come since they started. This week we introduce fewer new topics and instead focus on helping students to build the first version of their final project. WEEK 11 Graduation Early in the week we declare a feature freeze to make sure the final projects are as polished as possible. This is the most intensive week at Makers Academy, when all teams stay late trying to outperform each other to write the most impressive code. There is no Friday challenge. Instead, we have a graduation ceremony, followed by a party attended by friends, families, hiring partners, recruiters, ex-students and prospective students of Makers Academy. WEEK 12 Hiring Week This week our new graduates receive the personal attention of our expert placements team. They focus on honing life-long learning skills and preparing to enter the jobs market. This could include technical tests, working on open-source code or even working on projects for charities that we partner with. For those students who attend Makers as entrepreneurs, this is a great week to start working on your MVP! [-]

Music Business Program

Recording Connection Audio School
Campus September 2017 United Kingdom London

If you’re going to be successful as a record executive, label owner or band manager, you really need to be smart and deliberate regarding your choice of music school. There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. [+]

Part time Course Studies in Business Studies in Greater London in United Kingdom. THE RECORDING CONNECTION MUSIC BUSINESS PROGRAM: AVAILABLE IN ALL 50 STATES AND CANADA. With hundreds of locations across the U.S., Canada, Australia and theU.K., the Recording Connection has helped thousands of students find their way in to rewarding music industry careers by placing them as working apprentices (externs) in actual recording studios. Each student is paired with a mentor, a successful working producer/engineer with years of experience and real album credits. We partner with hundreds of music professionals across the globe, many of whom work with Platinum-selling and Grammy-winning artists, to ensure that our students are receiving the best guidance, education and opportunities possible. The Recording Connection's Music Business Program is now enrolling! Are you looking for an exciting, rewarding career as a record executive, music mogul, band manager or other music industry professional? 
Do you have a desire to find fresh, new, talented bands and artists and help them reach a wider audience? Do you wish you had the connections and resources to do so?

Do you have a drive and passion to find the next world music superstar and watch the world sing their songs? 
Do you dream of becoming the next Quincy Jones, David Geffen, Jimmy Iovine or Sam Phillips? 
 Do you have the work ethic and commitment to see these dreams succeed, if only you had the right opportunity? IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO ANY/ALL OF THESE QUESTIONS, THEN IT’S TIME TO CONSIDER YOUR NEXT STEPS VERY CAREFULLY. ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ACTION TO TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY? DO YOU HAVE THE COURAGE TO MAKE THE TOUGH DECISIONS TO HELP YOU GET THERE? Straight Talk About Your Music Industry Career: If you’re going to be successful as a record executive, label owner or band manager, you really need to be smart and deliberate regarding your choice of music school. There are many options out there, but many schools charge far too much money and don’t offer any real connection to the music industry itself. By choosing one of these schools, you run the risk of taking on career-crushing amounts of student debt for little or no return on your investment. And for someone trying to make it in the music business, that can halt your career before it ever starts. Don’t be that guy or girl. Don’t make the mistake of spending $25,000, $50,000 or $100,000 for a music school education that offers no real path to your future, and don’t make the even more serious mistake of taking on that kind of debt. Let’s be clear: your key to breaking into the music business doesn’t lie in a classroom with a bunch of other students, nor does it lie in some sort of online program that offers you no real feedback. Your path to success lies in the music industry itself—with the people who are actually DOING the work, who can show you the ropes and help you make your own connections. The Recording Connection offers this opportunity with our unique music business training program. Instead of placing you in an overpriced classroom, we place you as a working apprentice (extern) with a real music industry professional who is doing the job you want to be doing. As you follow a structured course curriculum, you’ll gain lots of real-world experience as you work alongside your mentor, and you’ll learn how to make the connections you need in order to succeed (and trust us—success in this business is ALL about connections). Best of all, you’ll gain this experience, knowledge and insider access for a FRACTION of what other music schools charge, so you can graduate with little or no debt and get on with your career. The music industry is a highly competitive field, and it’s the smart ones, the ones willing to think outside the box, who are the ones who rise to the top. For you, that begins with making choices about your education that will actually help your career without crushing you with debt. If you’re serious about beating out the competition to become a successful record executive or band manager, the Recording Connection is here to help! [-]
