UK Scrum Academy
We aim to empower students to change the world
The Agile approach to building digital services.
Our UK government is transforming the way government departments deliver digital services. Since 2012, all government departments have been required to use the Agile approach to project management, to build and run digital services.
As you start your own Agile journey, one of your first challenges will be understanding the rules and roles that support Agile delivery, for example: Which Agile framework is applicable to your business operating model, or is the Project Manager role equivalent to that of the Product Owner, and what does a Scrum Master do?
Our educators bring a wealth of real-world expertise and years of practical experience working on GDS Service Standards GDS-compliant government and public sector projects. Our CPD Certification courses combine PowerPoint presentations, real-world exercises, and informal discussions to introduce you to Scrum as a delivery method, without the impending pressure of having to pass a formal certification examination.
We offer our Scrum courses in different formats, with each format carefully crafted to ensure students receive well-rounded and comprehensive training that prepares them for success. Course content is constantly updated to reflect student feedback and the latest industry best practice. Our students complete their Scrum training empowered and equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to make a positive impact.
