Welcome to Talent Academy

Unlocking the next generation of cloud talent

Created in collaboration with AWS, the Talent Academy program is designed to discover and nurture new cloud talent. 

Closing the skills gap via this type of program is hugely important to Cloudreach. The academy is a vital part of our mission to set the standard for diverse and inclusive communities within the industry. Each academy cohort of 20 trainees takes a two year, zero to cloud journey, gaining certifications and billable project experience along the way.
