Upskilling and Training
Amazon is investing £10 million over three years to train up to 5,000 employees in new skills and support the government’s investment programme, through Career Choice. Additionally, we are committing to provide free cloud computing skills training to 29 million people around the world with programmes available to anyone.
Skills training opportunities for employees
This innovative Amazon programme is designed to support our employees who are interested in pursuing a future outside of the company. Amazon Career Choice will pay up to 95% of tuition and associated fees for courses at accredited schools that lead to vocational certifications or Associate of Applied Science degrees in qualified fields of study.
Designed for individuals looking for foundational cloud computing skills, all the way to seasoned IT professionals looking to stay up to date on the latest technologies, we offer more than 500 free courses, interactive labs, and virtual day-long training sessions, and numerous free instructor-led webinars, in multiple languages. AWS Training and Certification also runs AWS Tech U, a 48-week residency programme designed to help a select group of new AWS employees launch a successful cloud career.
