Being a part of the team at Firebrand is brilliant. Firebrand provide accelerated IT and project management training alongside digital apprenticeships.
We focus on data protection and cloud and cybersecurity training, and I’ve even been able to experience this training during my placement. I’ve sat in on some of these courses and they’ve helped me narrow down what I want to do in the future.
Going on placement is really rewarding. I’ve been able to put what I’ve learnt at university into action and gain knowledge I’m sure I’ll use in the future.
A placement is a great opportunity and you get the most out of it by throwing yourself at the opportunities on offer. Even if areas of business you've not been interested in in the past come up, it's well worth having a go. You never know what you might learn.
This has been my first ‘real’ job, so the experiences I’ve had have taught me loads. It’s been a useful way to learn about how a real business works every day. I now have a better understanding of the working world ready for when I graduate.
