Course: Coding Traineeship
Placement Date: September 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?
I started the traineeship during the first lockdown, it provided the opportunity to move into an industry where I can develop myself and start my new career.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
I enjoyed the project work, this has equipped me with the skills in order to get my current job, where I got an interview based on my portfolio website. Paddy, my tutor was particularly knowledgeable of the standards required in the industry.
What's your current role like?
My current role involves me working on several varied projects supporting the development side as part of a wider creative team. I feel that I am free to develop and apply myself and I can always ask for help from my manager(who is very knowledgeable in development) for help. Which I do.
