We’re pleased to announce that our apprentice, Alex Clabburn (pictured below) has passed his Level 3 NVQ I.T.  Apprenticeship course by completing the following qualifications:

• Level 3 Diploma in Professional Competence for IT and Telecoms Professionals.
• Level 3 Extended Diploma in ICT Systems and Principles.
