I would highly recommend HMGCC's apprenticeship to anyone. Jack
I joined HMGCC as a Software Testing Apprentice working towards an HNC in Computing & Systems Development and a firm platform to build a career on at the end of the programme.
My Apprenticeship involved a year full-time at college followed by a couple of years spent working in the various software departments and visiting college every few weeks. As well as a solid start to my career in software, I made some fantastic friends in my fellow apprentices, and we were all warmly welcomed into the organisation. I'd also earned enough money while studying to buy myself a new sports car!
At the end of my apprenticeship, I was offered the chance to top up my HNC into an HND, and upon taking the offer, I was given a day a week to attend college. After working in Software Testing for a period of time, HMGCC supported my move into Software Development. I was provided with all of the relevant training I would need and went through our Sofware Landing Zone to get me ready.
I've now got the same level job that I would have applied for after University, but instead, I've been paid to learn the same skills, and have got several years of work experience! HMGCC is a great place to work; they actively promote professional development, want to see their staff excel, and promote a good work/ life balance. I would highly recommend HMGCC and in particular their apprenticeship scheme, to anyone.
