  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
  • IT Apprentice I was running the schools IT department so would have to fix any issues given by the teachers as soon as was practical as to not hinder the students learning. I then later had to teach each class about the new tablets the school had purchased.
