Apprenticeship Stories: 5 Minutes With Our IT Apprentices

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we have spoken to our apprentices here at Comms365; some of them are currently partaking in their course, and others have completed theirs and are still working for the company.

In the second article of our three-part series, we have spoken to Will and Jamie; our current IT apprentices, to see how they are getting on and why they made the decision to become an apprentice.

1.  How long have you been doing your apprenticeship for?

8 Months

Because learning useful skills and getting paid to do it attracted me to do an apprenticeship.

3. Would you recommend an apprenticeship to others?

Yes, I think it’s worth doing.

4. How has Comms365 supported you throughout your apprenticeship?

They have given me the training and workplace required for me to learn skills that will help with my apprenticeship outside of work, as well as supporting me with the work I have had to do inside of the workplace.

1.  How long have you been doing your apprenticeship for?

I have been doing my apprenticeship for 8 months.

2. Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship?

When I finished my previous college course I wanted a change.  I found that doing an apprenticeship would allow me to gain a qualification and work at the same time. Doing an apprenticeship is currently helping me to gain experience that I would never get doing a college course.

3. Would you recommend an apprenticeship to others?

Yes, doing an apprenticeship is one of the best decisions I have made to date!

4. How has Comms365 supported you throughout your apprenticeship?

Since the first day I started I was included in all team related activities which allowed me to feel supported and made me feel comfortable, I could not ask for a better team to work with! Alongside the team support as a whole, all of the senior management team have been supporting me with any questions I may have.
