The last place I worked was in Amazon, which was from August 2013 to May 2014. I did use some forms of IT there such as scanners to receive products into the warehouse, but nothing major. The most IT related job I have had was during work experience while I was in school, which was for a sport & leisure company called PlayFootball, where I was mostly doing database management.
I left full-time education to start full-time work to start earning money, but I’ve decided now I would like to gain more qualifications and pursue a career in IT.
For my employment in the apprenticeship, I am working in Cwmtawe Community School based in Pontardawe. I have performed a wide range of tasks so far such as;
- Resolving simple hardware issues such as replacing laptop keyboards
- Using tools such as Google Drive to audit all the IT devices in the school
- Learning about networking by doing tasks such as installing and wiring cameras throughout the school
- Using various network tools such as applying group policies and managing different user accounts.
By the end of the course I hope to able to progress to Level 3, whilst still working in Cwmtawe School, and beyond that hopefully start a full IT career still working there or somewhere else in the Neath-Port Talbot council.
