Colin Bailey

Job Before: Senior Technical Manager

Job Now: 1st Line Analyst @ SCOMIS




Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Placement Date: September 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?
I was previously working in the conferencing and live events industry but due to the pandemic, I was made redundant. The Traineeship gave me the opportunity to retrain into an area that has always interested me. It was a perfect way to turn an interest into a career.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
I enjoyed the fact that it allowed me to home study at my own pace with comprehensive study material and training videos that led to me to gain certification that potential employers would recognise and value.
What's your current role like?
I help provide 1st line support to 800+ schools in over 50 local authorities with MIS (Management Information System) which I am finding very rewarding and fulfilling.
