  • I wanted to do both

    The biggest problem I saw with going to university is that it's hard to get work experience and if you went straight to work you lacked qualifications, so missed opportunities. This made it clear that I wanted to do both, so that's why I chose an apprenticeship over university.
  • The thing that has stood out for me the most is the people

    The thing that has stood out for me the most is the people. I have been truly impressed with how they support you in developing in your role. I have always received help when needed and everyone I have approached has always taken the time to talk to me.
When I look back to life before completing the CGI degree apprenticeship and life now, the single biggest benefit is the belief I now have in my abilities both academically and professionally. It means I never second-guess myself when considering future training and learning opportunities and, what’s more, standing in front of people to speak and deliver presentations is no longer daunting!
