Job Before: Property Manager
Job Now: Service Desk Analyst @ Stagecoach

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I was looking to get back into an IT role, and after being out of the IT industry for a long time, I knew that I would need to complete some up to date training.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

I liked the fact you can complete the course anywhere at any time, and at your own speed. I chose to leave my previous role in Property Management to focus on the course, but you can also complete it in your spare time whilst still working.

Course: Cyber Security Traineeship
Placement Date: October 2020
Job Before: Specialist Lead Practitioner
Current role: IT Support Associate @ Advanced

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I have always loved IT since I was a child but undertook other careers such as teaching. My career in teaching was not working out for me and when I saw the traineeship that IT Career Switch offered I snapped it up so that I could realise my childhood dream. I could have tried to switch to a career in IT on my own, but I felt that the traineeship provided a good structure to help me adjust from one career to another.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

I really enjoyed learning about networking and security, as well as the opportunity to practise skills in the Live Lab environment. The traineeship has also confirmed for me that I really do want to pursue a career in cybersecurity and I am glad of the opportunities that it will avail me.

What's your current role like?

It’s absolutely amazing. The company I work for are so supportive and provide excellent training. I get to solve problems related to financial software at the front end and over time will write SQL code, as well as troubleshoot issues at the server backend. I am so pleased I made the change to IT.

Job Before: General Operative
Job Now: Laptop Engineer @ Team Knowhow

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I started the traineeship to get the qualifications I needed to move from a mundane manual labour position into an exciting career in IT, I am now doing more qualifications to further my new career and I couldn’t be happier.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

I enjoyed learning about networking and security, I always found these subjects to be fascinating and the information provided during the course was absolutely fantastic because being video based it explains everything in a way that is easy for anyone to understand.

What's your current role like?

As an IT Engineer I now feel like I am on my way to a brighter future rather than just doing a job that pays minimum wage with no serious progress. I can and do fix any problems people have with their devices and I am filled with pride everyday

I took a long career break and so it became challenging for me to secure employment. After 3 long months of searching, it finally dawned on me that I needed to refresh my knowledge and update my skills to improve my employability. I came across IT Career Switch as I was looking online which offered training that matched my area of expertise and covered various other relevant areas AND guaranteed a job after training which was very appealing.

We are a professional development services company and as a Support Analyst my day to day job involves first line support to clients in various enterprises that use our products to help streamline their business operations, primarily accounting, payroll, and customer relations.  At this stage I am still learning different areas and shadowing my team-mates, honestly, I am delighted with all the help and support I get from the entire AWSM team.  It is so satisfying to be a part of such an amazing team of people.
