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.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

9/10

I have recieved my Level 3 qualifications The personal and professional skills I obtained while working at the school has proven to be priceless as this has helped me succeed further.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

7/10

I really enjoyed it, the only down side is 3aaa (the apprenticeship provider) lied at the start and told me that the apprenticeship would be a full diploma and I would be able to go to university straight from the programme but sadly it wasnt so now I am doing an access course

1/10

I was on the minimum wage which didn't sustain my outgoings so I had to have a part time job at Tesco
