"I work for my old school, who headhunted me after completing my work placement with them. This was only made possible by the information, expertise and experience I gained from studying at Plymouth University.
Initially, I chose the computer systems and networks course at Plymouth because it was accredited by the British Computer Society and provided a work placement year. I was also very impressed by the excellent campus and facilities I saw when I came to the University's open days.
The school I work for is a large technology college based in the Cotswolds. I work with a great team and get immense job satisfaction.
Working in school - both on placement and after graduation - is a fantastic opportunity, which is often underestimated. I would suggest that for a 'hands-on' approach there is no better place as they can't always afford to call in outside engineers."
