Muhammad Miah joined Bluecube Academy as an ICT Apprentice in September 2021, part of our very first cohort when we launched our apprenticeship scheme last year.
Before joining, Muhammad was studying IT at University, having completed a BTEC ICT course in Sixth Form. He spent a year at University but didn’t enjoy the style of learning and how it was mainly test-based. Muhammad made the decision to leave Uni and apply for apprenticeships in IT instead as he wanted to learn in a different way.
When he was looking for apprenticeships, the interviews were mainly conducted via video call as the UK was still in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic. As he didn’t have any work experience, he didn’t get his hopes up, but after speaking with Rob Gilbride (Head of Talent and Development at Bluecube) who accepted him onto the programme, he felt reassured and confident.
Muhammad has a keen interest in technology and phones. He particularly enjoys learning about the latest advancements, researching new features and reading about changes to the newest models coming out.
