Today’s workshop provided us with an insight into our current roles within the IT sector and the information & opportunities that are available to us from various learning providers/websites.
We also learned about the current state and future plans of the IT sector in Wales. Here are some of the facts we found:
- The IT industry is growing at a rapid rate and a constant flow of new employees is required to allow this growth to continue.
- There are several organisations that have been set up to provide information & help people within the sector, some of these include; e-skills, City & Guilds and BCS. All of which have helpful websites with access to various online courses and learning materials.
I hope that my role as a Systems Engineer will continue once I have earned my qualifications and that my knowledge and skills will also continue to expand, as they have over the last 6 months.
