Brock students receive a visit from IBM manager & former student, now IBM apprentice
Posted on: 13th December 2016
Students with sights set on successful careers in computing and IT met with IBM Early Professionals Manager Trevor Lee when he visited the College recently to give careers advice.
Trevor was joined by former Brock student, Amy Gilkes, who is in the first year of her apprenticeship with the computing and IT giant.
Among other things, the pair talked about progression routes within the company before taking questions.
The idea was to inspire future computing and IT professionals, and to inform them about the opportunities available when they leave college.
Teacher Charlie Broomfield said afterwards: “Computing and IT is one of the most diverse and exciting industries our students can enter, and IBM offers wonderful apprenticeship and gap year programmes.
She continued: “The talk has inspired many of our students to apply, some of whom had not considered an apprenticeship previously.”
