What is the Graduate Training Program?

Our graduate training program aims to smooth the transition from graduate to effective member of a clinical biostatistics team,  The comprehensive 12 week syllabus equips you with relevant skills and knowledge so that by the end of the training program you will feel prepared for your new role as a Statistician or Programmer.  As well as in depth technical training, you will get an overview of the industry and a range of soft skills to help you manage projects, communicate with clients and follow specific processes. 

How is the training conducted?

At the beginning of the programme you will be given your training schedule together with your SAS training book which you will work through.  Your SAS training includes the opportunity to practice your skills and complete additional tasks in the safe environment of a mock clinical study. 

The initial part of the program focuses on introduction to industry topics, understanding other job roles you may come into contact with, soft skills such as time management and active listening, greater depth of understanding of specific SAS procedures, and Quality.  Client-specific training is introduced as required part way through and is balanced with other training.  As you advance through the graduate training program you will work on training and client work concurrently, spending more time on client work towards the end of the program.

Throughout the graduate training program and beyond, you will be supported by an assigned mentor who will be with you every step of the way. 

Even if you have some technical experience, our comprehensive program ensures that any potential knowledge gaps are addressed. As the programme progresses you will take on more project work and client-specific training, and by the end of the 12 weeks you will have sufficient skills to work on client projects.

There is a genuine focus on "Quality First" to drive efficiency, which is very refreshing having seen this slip in my previous company. Fantastically friendly culture within the company where everyone seems happy to help each other out no matter how big or small the request is.
