Doubling up on distinctions with second QA Apprenticeship


Civica apprentice Daniel Wright achieves distinction for a second time on his second tech apprenticeship programme with QA.

We first recounted the endeavours of Leeds-based Civica employee Daniel Wright back in the autumn of 2017.  Daniel and Civica were early adopters to apprenticeship standards and October 2017 saw Daniel attain a distinction (the highest grade available) as he completed his Infrastructure Technician level 3 programme.

Wind the clock forward just over 2 years and both Daniel and Civica have reason to celebrate once more. Daniel, who opted to complete QA’s Network Engineer Level 4 apprenticeship programme has repeated his initial feat and achieved a distinction once again.

Ben Pike, Managing Director at QA said:

“This is excellent news for Daniel, Civica and QA. It’s clear that Daniel and Civica are getting continued results from our apprenticeship portfolio. We love to see apprentices progressing in this way and our destination data continues to show the hugely positive impact our apprenticeship have on future earning and careers.”

QA’s Network Engineer Level 4 Apprenticeship programme combines online learning, classroom training and work-based experience to develop real world skills using cutting edge technology. It also includes two Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certifications – one in mobility and device fundamentals and another in cloud fundamentals.

Commenting on completing his second apprenticeship and gaining his second distinction, Daniel said:

“I’m very happy to have finished my Level 4 apprenticeship with a Distinction. Civica, and specifically my line manager Glenn Wheeler, have been incredibly supportive throughout the course. My team is full of great people who have vast knowledge on ranging technologies which meant I was always able to learn from extensively experienced colleagues whenever I had questions. Civica have offered me a full contract which I have gladly accepted – I’m looking forward to what the future holds for me after being lucky enough to have had a great start to my career.”

Just as in 2017, international software business Civica continues its focus on investing in people and creating an excellent company culture. This is highlighted in their ranking as one of the top places to work in the 2018 Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards.
