The hardest part of the job was probably doing things that were out of my comfort zone, but looking back it was good for me as i have gained so much confidence and so many skills. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely being able to work with such amazing, talented individuals and learning so many new skills/

Business Admin Apprentice (Former Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne – 27 April 2015
As an apprentice for the NHS I joined the web development department, before I started I had no idea how to create websites. Or even what computer languages were. Though with the support of my colleagues and my manager, I am now able to code websites and I now know what I want to do for my job in the future.
Whilst I was there I was given multiple projects to work on in a team or individually, through the sweat and determination I was able to create applications with the support of my co-workers.
