Sharing Careers Stories


Ex-students return to Brakenhale to share their career stories

Michael Adams, James Maryon and Rajveer Sohal delivered an inspiring careers session to sixth form students and shared their stories about pursuing the apprenticeship route after they completed their A Levels and BTEC qualifications.

Michael works at Europe’s leading software company Softcat and is studying for his ITSP IT Technical Salesperson Apprenticeship. James works for Fujitsu and is studying both an apprenticeship in Software Development and a Degree in Digital & Technology Solutions. Rajveer works for Unilever and is studying a Degree in Chartered Management.

The boys explained how they found, applied for and secured these roles whilst in Year 13 and spoke about the benefits of choosing the alternative route to University. This session provided current sixth form students with a balanced insight into the range of opportunities available to all students post-18.

Thanks to Michael, James and Raj for sharing their stories and experiences with our students.
