I am currently partaking in the PlanBEE Built Environment apprenticeship course which allows students to gain qualifications while also gaining valuable experience of working within the construction industry. Having started in September 2017, I am in my first year of the course working to achieve my Higher National Certificate (HNC).
I am at my first four month placement with NBS where my time involves rotations around different teams and working in different roles within the company, including in Software Development, Product Information, Technical and Research.
