The Apprenticeship is a kick-start and it has helped me get my foot in the door. I have learned a lot on the job. I have gained a lot of experience and it’s been great working with professionals – I have had these people supporting me from day one.
I think it’s great how much support you receive on the programme. University is nothing compared to real work experience. Technology is moving fast, and by the time of graduation, knowledge will most probably be outdated.

I would always recommend an Apprenticeship, especially for the IT sector. The skills you need are constantly changing, and IT is a growing sector.
