UX COACH - how it works
Because it's all about what you can deliver for your team
Before you can start, you should have a good, basic understanding of what UX is. There are a few free online UX courses that can provide the foundation we are looking for. You can contact our team for recommendations.
We will invite you for a couple of consultative sessions with our Career Adviser, and if you are a good match, you will be able to start straight away.
The training is 50% in-house and 50% online.
You will spend 2.5 days with your team in our workshops (not flexible)
And 2.5 days online (flexible)
We designed the programme, so most of your week is flexible, and you can work or do other projects.
Expect to complete 3 to 5 real industry projects working in a real team and interacting with CEO's, Project Managers, and other Stakeholders.
By the time you graduate, you will have real industry experience that all employers are looking for.
All our trainers experienced UX professionals that will train you in four UX areas. In practice (not just in theory):
Strategy & planning
Testing & iterating
Coaching will prepare you for the realities of being a practising UX designer in a highly dynamic team:
Building character and developing a growth mindset
Communication and presentation skills
Working within a team
Continuous self-learning and developing
"As a designer who’s generally leaned towards UI and visual design, Sputnik’s tuition for specific areas of UX design and research has been invaluable. My basic understanding of UX has massively improved — I now feel confident organising testing sessions and interviews, along with the best way of collating and analysing this research. This has fed into my rapid prototyping and iteration process brilliantly. I’ve also made huge improvements with mapping user-flows, and translating these into understandable documents. Skills that I was able to apply immediately in my work and that had a great effect on our product."

Simple, but not easy.
We are committed to providing the knowledge, tools, support and opportunities. You will have to provide the drive, determination, ambition and hard work.
"It has been delightful to work with the Sputnik team and students over 2019.
The training team was extremely knowledgeable in the subject area of UX and the Sputnik model worked very well for Nuvven where we worked on a project combining our in-house development team with the UX delivery by Sputnik students. Sputnik’s students were able to deliver the MVP prototype for us in a very short span of time.
Nuvven was interested in hiring a number of Sputnik’s graduate students and have them join the permanent team since we already knew their characters and professional capabilities and could tell who will be a good match to Nuvvens culture.
We are looking forward to working with Sputnik again in 2020 for our next projects and hoping to expand our team with Sputnik graduates."
