Course: Coding Traineeship
Placement Date: February 2021
Why did you start the Traineeship?
I started the traineeship because I saw IT as a reliable and rewarding career. I also wanted a skill which would allow me to be creative and take initiative on my own projects, but also work collaboratively with other like-minded people.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
I found the projects the most enjoyable. I liked that I was given some sort of goal and structure to work towards as I’d only ever really created projects for myself. It was great working with my tutor to meet deadlines and complete a project to a specific design.
What's your current role like?
My current role is fantastic. I’m a junior web developer for a local e-commerce site. I work on a variety of different technologies every day and get to work with an incredibly knowledgeable and supportive manager. I enjoy being able to learn different skills and contribute to the ongoing work of the team.
