Software Engineering Degree Apprentice at the BBC

I have always been fascinated by engineering, science and robotics which fuelled my decision to study engineering at A-level. While studying, I developed a lot of knowledge and practical experience and I’m now using that during my training as a software engineering apprentice in the BBC news and weather team. Recently, I had the chance to work on an exciting project called Weather Watchers, which is a new component of the BBC weather page, used by millions of people across the UK. At the end of my apprenticeship, I would like to move into a different field like game designing or robotics.
