University of the West of Scotland’s Graduate Apprenticeship (GA) in IT: Software Development has helped Radoslaw Lewandowski to advance his career at Arnold Clark.
By combining academic learning with real-time practical experience in the workplace, the University’s GA programmes deliver industry-relevant skills and qualifications. GAs are developed in partnership with employers to ensure that the learning is relevant to industry and that apprentices can apply their learning in the workplace immediately.
UWS enjoys close links with Arnold Clark who have already invested in creating three new apprentice Software Engineer posts at their Hillington HQ with recruitment currently underway for a further two posts to commence in September.
Radoslaw Lewandowski, who holds the post of Associate Software Engineer at Arnold Clark, has just completed his GA programme at UWS and has already seen the benefits of the course in his job.
He said: “I have gained a lot of practical, hands on development experience during my time completing my GA which helps me in my current role to develop new software.
“I was always interested in IT and the UWS GA gave me the opportunity to be able to advance my career and gain academic qualifications whilst also still being able to provide for my family. Software developers are in high demand and I am delighted to have undertaken the course. UWS is a great university and its new modern campus in Lanarkshire is a great place to study.”
