Glen Lucas, Desktop Operations / Media Services Apprentice
“By the time I had left school, I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do. I had done different jobs but, I hadn’t found the right job for me. I’ve always helped my family and friends when they had issues with their electronic devices and I felt a great sense of achievement when I’ve fixed their problems.
When I found out about an IT Apprenticeship, I really liked the idea of gaining skills and using them while earning. Especially, at the best University in Scotland as this gives you a great chance to expand your knowledge and network.
At first, I was quite nervous but everyone gave me a warm welcome and I’m very happy working here – there is always a positive atmosphere and a great working environment. Everyone is really helpful in making sure I understand the work I’m doing, taking me through each process in a clear manner.
I think I made an amazing choice coming to St Andrews as there isn’t a better place to learn skills in IT – everyone is so supportive and happy to help!”
