Rhys Froggatt - graduate profile

Senior ICT Support Technician, Chipping Campden School

"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."
