Paige Carr | ICT Apprentice

I started as an ICT Apprentice with Magenta. The team made me feel really welcome and I was exposed to lots of knowledge and skills in a short space of time. I’ve been involved in the ‘Girls in Construction’ event where myself and two other colleagues presented our IT experiences, in front of other aspiring girls who wanted to break the stereotype of male dominated roles.

The next event I was involved in was the Women in IT event in London where three members of the team were nominated for an award. I was also involved in the Northern Powerhouse Apprentice summit. This event was held in Manchester and involved hundreds of apprentices talking about their own experiences as apprentices and a number of guest speakers informed everyone how people’s perceptions of apprenticeships have changed throughout the years. As well as all the events I have attended, I have received on the job training which has helped me to progress further that I thought I could and I look forward to seeing what the next 12 months have in store for me!
