Spencer dispels the myths of apprenticeships, and talks about how to accelerate your journey into a software engineering career through an apprenticeship at Makers.
“The whole Makers experience was amazing and completely life changing. It has been the best form of education I have ever been through. The emotional intelligence curriculum at Makers also gave me a sense of self-awareness that I never really had before the course.”
“Since Makers, I’m happier. I’ve gained a tangible skill that means I don’t just have a job, I am what I do and I’m proud to do it. I owe a great deal to my fellow Makers Alumni and everyone who supported me through the course. Life-changing is a cliched term but this is a truly transformative course.”
“There’s been a lot to learn but I’m already impressed that I’m encountering challenges, working to overcome them and moving on to the next area quite quickly. It can be daunting. I like that the Makers ethos is about learning plenty, getting stuck, working out how to get unstuck and then working hard to move forward.”
“At Makers, you’re encouraged to be active in your own learning rather than have it passively given to you. To learn a language you need to be immersed in a culture… you can’t just do it three hours a week. You need to really get to grips with it. You need to just get stuck in and not be afraid to get things rolling or to try do things differently.”
