We caught up with second year T Level student Jas after he completed his T Level work placement with Radical Forge, a games development and software company based in Middlesbrough.
Jas said: “I really enjoyed my placement at Radical Forge, everyone was so friendly and made me feel at ease whilst I was on placement.
“I learnt a lot during my placement, and it helped me to gain an insight into the industry and the potential job roles I could pursue in the future.
“During my placement, I was supporting the team on the helpdesk and helping to fix any IT or technical issues the team had. I found the experience really interesting and rewarding as I developed my teamwork and problem-solving skills.
“I developed a range of transferrable skills which will help me with future job or University applications. I also covered a range of topics during my placement that has helped me with the second year of my T Level studies, so I’m ahead of the game! I would say that my confidence has also improved, I would definitely recommend the T Level route for any future students wanting to pursue a career in the digital sector.”
