UX COACH

NEXT GENERATION UX TRAINING

Because it's all about what you can deliver for your team

the UX profession is expected to grow from the current about 1 million people to about 100 million people by 2050. A growth factor of 100.

UX Coach is a unique UX learning experience preparing next-generation UX Designers for the industry.

The skills we teach are embedded and refined through work on real industry projects in small groups that are lead by seasoned UX professionals and Performance Coaches.

Its a uniquely effective way to build a killer skill-set, professional confidence, and real industry experience that all employers are looking for.

Outside of your comfort zone

 

(Where true learning happens.

You will be working on a real UX project from day one )

in-depth and in-length

 

(We don't cut corners if it's not good enough for industry employers it's not good enough for us)

flexible & fairly priced

 

(We redesigned the learning experience and the business model)

"Over a decade of UX consulting and delivering UX projects across Microsoft, Barclays, Jaguar Land Rover, and the UK Government I repeatedly found that existing training never prepared for the real work. With 'UX Coach', we've created an unrivalled, real-life UX learning experience."

- UX Coach Founder, Ruth Vakrat

Why?

Tech sector in the UK growing x3 times faster than any other sector and last year £6.3bn of tech investment were made into scale-up firms.  With such rapid growth, comes a high demand for skilled tech workers with UX professionals at the forefront. 

The demand currently far surpasses the supply of individuals in this career. As a result, UX salaries have increased exponentially as companies compete with each other to attract professionals with adequate experience and skills.

But 'more' UX Designers is not Enough 

we need 'better' & 'different'

Team players

We need professionals who know how to work in a team - similar to NBA players. You won't win the game if you are not working with your team.

Rapid innovation

Tech industry changes incredibly fast (approx every 18 months). Programs that are hard to update (like University curriculum) won't do. The training needs to be designed for constant update to be ahead of the game.

Diversity

Diversity is one of the biggest challenges facing the tech industry today. We need teams that are diverse in gender, race and age.

Our mission is to train high-performing UX'ers to power-up the best of tech-teams and build the products of the future.

testimonial

"With a Bootcamp experience but out of the industry, I needed to strengthen my skills and Sputnik proved to be the perfect solution. 

 

I found the biggest difference between Sputnik and most courses out there is their approach, as Sputnik are heavily industry focused. 

They gave me a fantastic opportunity to work on live projects from the outset, researching and designing for a start-up company and working with a real development team creating a B2B product from the ground up. The solution was researched for viability then tested as it evolved; 

 

I learned quickly and was supported at every stage of the way. Sputnik gave me the opportunity to make friends, add a great client to my portfolio and walk into interviews with confidence. Thanks Sputnik!"
