Apprenticeships are an excellent option for ambitious school leavers who know what they want to do in their careers and Aleksander Zurawek is testament to that fact. Alek graduated from Christ the King Sixth Form College and was offered a Network Engineering apprenticeship at Block Solutions, an IT consultancy and services company for businesses. Alek is now a Senior Provisioning Engineer for Virgin Media Business.
“My proudest achievement since finishing at Christ the King Sixth Form College was getting my foot in the door of the IT industry. I was given the opportunity to join a company specializing in networking consultation to some very high profile clients like Harrods, Lakeside and Canary Wharf Group.”
Alek’s apprenticeship gave him the chance to gain real working experience alongside getting his qualification. As a result, he has been able to progress quickly in the IT industry, and his current role holds a lot of responsibility.
