Tom Cross IT Career Switch

Course: Cyber Security Traineeship
Placement Date: August 2021

Why did you start the Traineeship?
I started the Traineeship as I was unhappy with my current career. I wanted a change and to go into a career sector I am enthusiastic and passionate about. I found IT Career Switch and their traineeship provided me with great resources to progress my long-term goal and enter the IT world.
What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?
I enjoyed that I wasn’t pressured and was able to do it in my own time and at my own pace from home. I also enjoyed how easy it was to access the learning videos provided and the practice questions as it is all located on one portal.
What's your current role like?
My current role is amazing. I’m currently working as an IT Engineer for an Education firm and I couldn’t be happier. They are also giving me time to develop further with my cybersecurity courses. 100% recommend IT Career Switch. Put the time and effort in and the sky’s the limit!
