Building a Culture of Learning with the Aptera Academy
By: Nikki Dent
One of the things we’re proud of here at Aptera is our culture of learning. It’s our company mission to empower our employees so they can help transform businesses with software. We seek to give our team members all the tools they need to best serve our clients. In software development, those tools are knowledge of the latest in technology. Employee empowerment starts on your very first day as an Aptera developer with our in-depth, customized approach to onboarding that we call the Aptera Academy.
What Is the Academy?
The Aptera Academy is a blend of learning and mentorship that helps new team members catch up on any hard skills they might need on the job as well as learn the shared vocabulary of an Aptera developer. Training breaks down into two phases: alignment and apprenticeship. The alignment phase is where you study and learn, both with groups and on your own. After completing that phase, you enter apprenticeship where you’ll be assigned to a project team so you can continue your learning alongside other Aptera developers with actual code.
