Things to consider

Creating software can be both rewarding and extremely frustrating, so you will need to work hard and be tenacious. With programming, there is always a solution.

In software development, the best work is always achieved as a team, so good communication is as much a part of success as hard skills.

Important other information - Occasionally the apprentice will be invited to visit customer sites to learn more about how the solution is used by our customers.
