“The practical work and the chance to use the computer software in a more in-depth programme was the reason I chose the study at Newbury College. I enjoy being able to be creative in my learning.”

I chose Newbury College because it provided me with the right course in the specific area of IT I wanted to pursue. As an apprentice, the on-the-job training allowed me to fully immerse myself in the career I wanted and a work environment which taught me the skills I still use today. Since leaving the College I have worked for various companies around the South East including design agencies, print and digital marketing companies, start-ups and charities. I am delighted to currently be using my skills to support the local community at Apple Print Creative and Design as a Web Developer.
