About the programme

Ingenuity Commerce is joining forces with AWS to offer a two-week ecommerce skills programme following the re/Start 12-week course, giving participants the opportunity to build upon their cloud-based knowledge, applying it to the world of ecommerce.

The course will be delivered in conjunction with the Ingenuity Commerce careers team, who are directly responsible for managing career pathways into the THG Elevate programme and THG Tech Support roles.

The programme will run over two weeks, with the final day held at our ICON campus in Manchester. Should you choose to attend the final day, you will be required to fund your own travel to Manchester Airport – transport to the ICON campus from here will be arranged for you.
