A WBL Student on Starting out in a Professional Environment

Working for the Informatics Centre has given me the opportunity to work for real clients looking at iOS Application Development in a professional environment, this has provided me with valuable skills I can use in jobs after graduation.

Work based learning has developed my skills in communication as I had to be professional in client meetings as well as improving how I work as part of a group. It has also taught me a range of new skills including advanced HTML5/CSS3, JavaScript development and also coding in objective-C for iPhone.

So far I have really enjoyed my time with the Informatics Centre as I have met new people and done some interesting things. One of the most exciting parts was when we visited a client who is part of a security company, and we were able to watch dogs getting trained to find illegal/dangerous items such as drugs and weapons on planes!
