How far does your formal education go? Are you doing this straight after GCSEs, A Levels or something else?

What level qualification do you get after completing the apprenticeship?

 

Hi Andrew, i completed my GCSEs and during them took Computer Science where i was introduced to software and found my passion there. It was my first practices of Python that helped me really get into software. After doing A-Levels for 4 months i realised 2/4 of the subjects i was taking (History and English) was not related to computing and i knew i wanted to have a career in Computing/Software. So i left A-Levels to focus more on Computing/Software and my apprenticeships gives me A-Level equivalents (Microsoft Certified) so i am not at a disadvantage :)
