Feedback from current placements:

Mark Nash, placement with DevOpsGuys, Cardiff:

“I have gained a lot of skills that I will need for a career in the IT industry, not just technical skills. I feel that I have gained a lot of experience in the work place, and made a lot of contacts. This year has helped give my vision of what I would like to do later on in life.”

Robert Sterio, placement with Alert Logic, Cardiff:

“From the trust and respect from my team leaders, seniors and my director I have been able to gain confidence in myself and able to tackle bigger and better opportunities. This confidence has come because they have allowed us to become one with their SOC and treat us as if we were an employee not just another intern.”
