My name is Martin, i’m from Czech Republic but live in Swansea for longer than 7 years now. I am 16 years of age. I am looking towards an IT apprenticeship or training that can develop my skills and knowledge further to increase my chance of getting the job I want to do in the near future.
My strengths are that I am confident into building/maintaining computer hardware. Besides IT I am also a drummer and I have played in numerous bands, I have performed in Birmingham and Swansea playing rock and pop style music in front of a large audience. I guess you can say i’m also confident in my speech and in what I do. I have definitely more weaknesses than strengths as I am not so good in English, and especially exams.
My previous work experience with computers was in 2012 where i worked in a mainstream and busy hotel called Grand Hotel for one month. I have been developing my knowledge and my experience by updating various programs such as the web browsers and office programs. I have also been in charge of maintaining the base networking systems in the hotel so clients can have easy access to the internet either through Wi-Fi or the computers through a ethernet cable.
I have decided to take on this course to further develop an idea of what I want to do in the future. IT is also one of my favorite hobbies, so to be able to learn more about it is a positive step to success to expand my knowledge and to be able to put my new acquired skills towards my C.V.
