Start your career today, with a bespoke, tailored training course from Netmatters!

Have you always been interested in computers and technology? Are you the family member who is always called on to help fix printers, or install new software? Do you have a passion for coding or have dabbled in building your own websites? Or are you simply fascinated by Google and marketing in general?  The Netmatters Scion Coalition Training Scheme is designed for individuals who have always wanted to take an interest in all things tech and turn them into a career – but haven’t really known where to start.

The course is an intensive, hands-on training experience built around your desired role. Whether you are looking to become a digital marketer, a web or software developer, or even (in some areas) an IT support technician – our dedicated team will provide you with the knowledge, skills, and hands-on experience that you need to land your dream role. On top of this, we will work with you to secure a role on the completion of the training.

Web or Software Developer

Our highly-skilled senior developers have honed the Scion scheme training to help you gain a career as a developer in any number of languages and industries. Throughout your time with us you will focus on basic coding skills, HTML and more, before choosing the area that you are keen to specialise. Our team will also help you to understand the benefits of each of the languages on offer.

Digital Marketing Executive

We will tailor your training to cover the inner workings of Google Analytics and Google Ads, understanding the basic functions of a website for SEO purposes for example. Under the Digital Marketing training you will also achieve a number of recognised Google Certifications.

I have been using Netmatters for a number of years in relation to my website and more recently IT. My website was designed entirely by the team who radiate a nothing is too much trouble attitude to my every request, which has concluded with a product I am extremely proud to have my company name on. IT are always there to solve or advise for whatever technical issues the day decides to throw at me. In conclusion I wouldn’t take my business anywhere else.
