BLOG: My Digital T Level Experience So Far...
Hi, I’m Alisha and I’m currently studying the Digital Production, Design and Development T Level.
T Levels are new courses, so I am one of the first ever T Level students, not only at Weston College, but in the UK.
The course has been really good so far. It has helped me to develop a range of skills, and not just digital based skills but personal ones too which are really going to benefit me in the future.
One of the benefits of studying a T Level, is having the opportunity to gain work experience through an industry placement – something which I am really enjoying!
I started my placement with Next Theme Web Design in March, and I can already see that my skills are going from strength to strength.
I am not just seen as a ‘placement student’ whilst here, my role is Junior Developer, and through this I have completed tasks related to websites and marketing, which allow businesses to expand and build their digital presence.
My skills have been put to the test, especially in terms of HTML and CSS skills, but thanks to the support I have received at college, I have been able to handle the challenges that have come my way.
The team I work with have also been very supportive, which has been a huge help. They have guided me through the transition to work and helped me gain new knowledge.
I am so proud to work for this company, the experience is improving my confidence and communication, as well getting a clearer understanding of what it is like to work in a professional environment.
If you’re reading this and thinking of studying a computing course, or T Level at Weston College, then I say go for it! You will learn so many skills on your course and the staff are very supportive.
