"I chose the Apprenticeship route, rather than going to university, because I learn best through experience and liked the idea of having a paid job that leads to a recognised qualification. From my very first day on the programme I was able to get stuck in and quickly become part of a highly experienced and professional IT team - I've learnt lots from working alongside my colleagues. I'd love to continue my training and complete a Level 4 Apprenticeship."
I get to muck in to so many areas of the business, such as monitoring social media and improving the website's SEO. It's great to be a valued member of the team. There's loads of flexibility with the Apprenticeship route - my tutor let me choose which units I wanted to study, so I could tailor my learning to suit what's required of me in my job.

I’m first line support. Learning in the workplace is different to being in a classroom because it matters if something goes wrong. In class, there’s loads of interaction – we’ve stripped down old PCs, took the hardware out then built them back up again.
