Grad program was great. Lots of opportunities to learn skills internally and externally.

Some great training, such as Collin James, some random Grad talks that have been a hit-or-miss, but a bit lacking in terms of more targeted training for individuals based on teams.

Company does invest in personal growth well.
Graduate, Sydney
A lot of training opportunities. Particularly soft skills (feedback, networking, presenting) in the grad program.
Graduate, Sydney
Licences for training websites (e.g. LinkedIn learning) are available. Most training is done on the job with guidance from a mentor. There aren't really any structured formal training programmes.

There are a LOT of training programs offered to grads and senior employees both. The company is great about that.
Midlevel, Sydney
The graduate program focuses on soft skills, teaching things like how to give/receive feedback, presentation and networking skills, and resilience. I've also heard that there are official scrum master certification courses (not sure if in-house or external), and the company also sponsors for staff to attend conferences such as the NDC (they sponsored all the dev grads to go). There is also a strong focus on personal development plans throughout the year.
Graduate, Sydney
Many opportunities and guilds to attend in order to learn new techniques or upskill. Developers have the opportunity to attend NDC each year. Scrum and agile course training is available.

Training opportunities are fantastic both within the business unit as well as within the graduate program.

Graduate program consists of 3 conferences in one year. They fly all the grads to Sydney for 2-week conference in the beginning of the year, 1 week conference in July and 1-week conference in November. They provide world-class conference where they invest significant amount of money on guest speakers to enrich our professional skills.
