"I thoroughly enjoyed my time studying at Cornwall College. The course was clearly laid out and the lecturers were very helpful. The assignments were engaging, and questions answered clearly by the lecturers.

After completing the Level 3 Extended Diploma in IT, I am now working as a Level 4 Software Developer Apprentice for IBM. In my role I look after test environments and monitor our test infrastructure. I enjoy the constant new challenge and learning opportunities as you get to see all the different ways that software interacts with its operating environment. "
