Meet the apprentice: Interview with Amber

Find out what it's like to be an apprentice with us - here's a quick interview with Amber, who's been on our web development course in Leeds for 8 weeks now. We spoke to her during a tea break at a recent class!

Hey Amber, thanks for the quick chat. How are you finding the training so far?
Really interesting! I've been surprised at how quickly it's gone (8 weeks has flown by!) and how much I've picked up in such a short time. I'm really liking the opportunities I've had to discover all the different aspects of development.

What was your previous experience before starting the course?
I originally studied graphic design but decided to get into web development after seeing the job opportunities.

And how's the job placement going? Are you enjoying working at the company?
It's going really well thanks! I'm working for a company in Otley. It's a small team but I get plenty of support from my boss and the team at Web Dev. I've already had some good experience working with project managers on some pretty cool web projects!

Finally - what are you hoping to achieve in the future in your web development career?
Right now I'm looking forward to gaining a valuable career as a front end developer and being able to contribute and be part of the development community!

Amber, one of our web developer apprentices
