Callum's Apprenticeship at Blue Whale Media

My Apprenticeship at Blue Whale Media.

I started my apprenticeship in April 2022 with Blue Whale Media as a Junior Web Developer. I am studying to be a level 3 Software Development Technician. Within these courses I will be learning about software development with a specialty in web development. I work 5 days a week and I am given one of them days where I can focus on any coursework or training I am given.

My experiences so far with the apprenticeship is that it has been a challenge and exciting to be a part of. It brings a new perspective and way of thinking when facing new challenges or problems. I have been enjoying the apprenticeship and I am looking forward to it everyday.

There are 5 modules I will be studying and they are software development environment, lifecycle, principles, implementing code and coding for data and web. In this apprenticeship I have learnt new coding skills as well as given me new insight into new methods into creative and logical thinking. I will also be learning how to develop new user interfaces and security.

After I have completed my apprenticeship I will be looking to stay with Blue Whale Media as a full time web developer and move on to the next step in my long term career in web. I will be going onto the next level of the apprenticeship to further increase my knowledge and skills when it comes to coding.
