Leon, Former IT Apprentice, 2006-2008

‘I started my career as an IT apprentice at Shipley College. I had always been interested in IT, so I have developed the skills and experience I gained on my apprenticeship to help me move in to employment. I have also continued to teach myself in more detail when it has been required to help my career evolve. I have gained substantial experience in complex network systems involving Microsoft and Linux servers.
The knowledge and understanding I gained have helped me to become a Senior Systems Administrator for worldwide hosting company working on their dedicated servers over Leeds. I have a lot of responsibility in my role, working in cybersecurity and testing network systems, servers and business premises for security threats and vulnerabilities. I then report my findings and have to provide solutions and advice on how to reduce the risks of cyber-attacks in the future.’
