A testimony about career transformation by Adrien Hucq.
A few months ago, I had the unique opportunity to undergo training organized by Le Wagon Brussels to become a Web Developer. In this article, I will share the reasons behind choosing this training and explain how I successfully integrated these new skills into my role as a Business Consultant at Novutech.
Le Wagon: an Internationally Recognized Training
The learning process at Le Wagon involves intense theoretical sessions followed by challenging practical exercises, encouraging students to deepen their understanding. Researching documentation and engaging with fellow students are also key aspects of the journey. Lastly, students participate in a practical project, applying all acquired skills in real-world scenarios.
Why I Chose Le Wagon?
My interest in development and coding dates back to my academic years, and it intensified through interactions with various technologies at Novutech. Collaborating with technical consultants during projects sparked my desire to learn more about their work.
In alignment with my management, I undertook a transition towards the technical side of Novutech to broaden my skills. The decision to choose Le Wagon was strengthened by the fact that many technical consultants at Novutech had undergone this training, attesting to its quality.
Opting for a short and intensive training, I aimed to fully immerse myself in this new experience and quickly acquire these new skills.
Benefits of Choosing Le Wagon
Opting for training provided by Le Wagon offers several significant advantages:
- Rapid Immersion: the intensive nine-week format allows for complete immersion in the world of development, thus accelerating the learning process.
- Practical Approach: practical exercises and the final hands-on project provide a concrete experience, allowing students to develop skills that are directly applicable in a professional setting.
- Quality Guidance: Wagon’s instructors are experienced professionals who ensure quality guidance, fostering a deep understanding of the taught concepts.
- Professional Network: training at Le Wagon provides an opportunity to build connections with other professionals in the field, expanding one’s professional network.
- Adaptability: whether geared towards a complete career change or just for essential skills enhancement, the flexibility of Le Wagon’s programs adapts to each individual student’s needs.
These benefits make Le Wagon a prudent choice for those seeking to quickly acquire advanced skills while benefiting from personalized support and an immersive experience.
A Well-Planned Transition
To meet my specific request for an intensive two-month training, I had to take leave from Novutech. Fortunately, the company had set up a support cell internally for training, making my departure more manageable.
Various mechanisms were put in place to alleviate the workload associated with my absence, covering as much as possible in terms of the training. Internal objectives were also set to ensure a coherent integration of this training on my side.
After the Training: A Successful Transition
Upon my return to Novutech, I transitioned to the technical side while continuing to work as a Business Consultant. This unique arrangement spanned several months during which I balanced my functional responsibilities with the exploration of technical tasks.
This gradual adaptation process allowed me not only to continue working on projects upon my return to Novutech, but also to rediscover a significant part of Novutech’s business by applying what I had learned during the training.
