Learner achieves Merit in Digital Apprenticeship

Congratulations to Oli for successfully achieving his Software Developer Apprenticeship with Merit…

As part of the technology trailblazers, B-Skill started their first Digital Apprentice, Oli. Oli joined Waymark, a North East software and web development company, as one of the country’s first Software Developer Apprentices.

Oli chose to go down this path instead of university as he believed “technology is our future so to be able to be a part of this and be able to develop that into modern business work place and improve their flow of business is inspiring.”

We’re delighted to say that Oli has not only completed his qualification but achieved a Merit for his hard work. When we asked Oli at the start of his programme what he wished to achieve from the Apprenticeship, he was keen to pursue a role in development… Now, after the successful completion of his Apprenticeship, Waymark have offered Oli a full-time position as Junior Software Developer.

Waymark uses cutting-edge technology to create efficiencies for small and medium-sized businesses and other organisations… It’s a fantastic company to learn with and work with. Oli gave us an insight about everything he has learnt over the duration of his Apprenticeship:

From beginning my apprenticeship, I have learnt to take a thorough and organised approach to work, using my own initiative to solve problems. I can operate at all levels of the software development lifecycle whilst effectively communicating with clients. I am able to interpret technical specifications and implement them. I have also learnt to write clean code adhering to my company guidelines and standards and can effectively debug applications to fix bugs and solve problems. I have gained a knowledge of how to test applications and the importance of this in the software development lifecycle. I now have the ability to manage projects and time through the use of JIRA and operate in an agile environment and am pleased to continue my journey at Waymark as a Junior Software Developer. Oli

Junior Software Developer, Waymark

B-Skill would like to wish Oli the best of luck in his new role. We are excited to continue our relationship with Waymark as they start their new Software Developer Apprentice this month.
