Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Placement Date: July 2019
Job Before: Branch Manager
Job Now: IT Engineer @ Fujitsu UK

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I have always been interested in all things IT and tech and I decided to make a career out of that. I needed a reliable and professional partner and IT Career Switch were the perfect match for my needs.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

The support throughout as well as the quantity and quality of the training content is nothing short of impressive. From start to finish and even after finding you a job they are one call or E-mail away. Everyone can throw a bunch of online courses your way and leave you to it, but this traineeship offers so much more than that.

What's your current role like?

As an IT Engineer at Fujitsu, my role mostly involves working closely with a huge variety of clients. It’s very challenging and fulfilling at the same time. Even though it is an entry level position, I think it has opened the doors to a world of opportunities in the industry.

Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Placement Date: August 2019
Job Before: English Tutor
Current role: ICT Service Desk Analyst @ Nacro

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I have long had an interest in technology, and wanted to learn new knowledge and skills to help me switch to an exciting new career.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

I think the inclusion of the CompTIA A+ exams makes it a very attractive package. The exams consolidated much of what I learned in the video courses, in topics such as hardware, networking, security and troubleshooting, and are a well-known qualification in the industry.

What's your current role like?

I work in a busy IT department in a charitable organisation and support a large number of end users. Although it can be pretty intense, it’s a rewarding role and I’m constantly learning new skills.

Nick Yates

Course: IT Technician Traineeship
Placement Date: July 2019
Job Before: Community Relation Manager
Job Now: NOC Engineer @ Custodian Data Centres

Why did you start the Traineeship?

I wanted to get into IT for some time and when my job at the time came to it’s logical conclusion I decided to take the plunge. I chanced upon an ad for IT Career Switch, did some further research and it soon became clear that they offered a well structured and detailed course that suited my needs.

What did you enjoy most about the Traineeship?

I tried a few other things previously, a bit of web design and a bit of basic programming stuff, but all of it was a bit ad hoc. With IT Career Switch you have a clear path through your studies, everything felt focused and well structured. That, plus the support offered, made it far easier for me to be disciplined and organised with my studies. 

What's your current role like?

I love it, although at times it can be a bit daunting, At Custodian, we specialize in collocation, which means we provide the rack space, the power and cooling infrastructure, but the contents of the racks belongs to the customer. That means that when we provide remote hands we don’t always know for sure what ‘s going to be in the rack or how its configured, which certainly can keep you on your toes!
