Moodle Forum Hi Clare, Hope you're well and enjoying half term. I completed my Industrial Placement last Wednesday, Thursday & Friday at the Robinson Group. It went well and was good to see how IT is used in a wide variety of business uses within the company. All the staff were very happy to talk to me and answer any questions and discuss how IT is used within their roles. It was really interesting to see how much IT is used within a company such as theirs. Cheers
Hi Clare, I have also started my IP today at Bradford Council at Jacobs Well arranged through Justin Booth. Seems good so far. Telling everyone i meet about diplomas!!! Thanks Hi Clare, I have managed to get in touch with my contacts sent via yourself, my placement is with Bradford District Care Trust in Saltaire. My placement is a jam packed 18 hour programme, where I have the chance to meet a range of IT professionals within the care trust at Saltaire. The only downside (still being positive) is that my placement is spread over 4 days rather than 3 days so im there till Friday, however its the experience, knowledge and contacts that I will build which is crucial for my career. Will post more info throughout the week.
