borwell and Heart of Worcestershire (HoW) College – Top IT Jobs for Former Students
Five former and present Computing students have all found employment at a Malvern based IT Company borwell. Formley known as Worcester College of Technology, the Heart of Worcester (HoW) college is known for supplying borwell with software engineers that either go on to university or stay with us to do an apprenticeship.
The family run business, which was established in 2003, provides many opportunities for college and university students by giving them a platform to develop their skills in a professional IT industry. The five students Adam Williams, Patrick Graham, Simon Green, Ollie Harker and Tim Jennings, have all studied a computing course at the College within the last ten years.
Ollie Harker, who is currently studying the HND in Computing and Systems Development whilst working at borwell commented:
“The College inspired me to investigate further into the IT industry. Working at borwell has provided me with a lot of confidence. I am learning how to balance my HND with working at borwell.”
Tim Jennings who studied on the National Diploma for IT Practitioners in 2005 commented:
“borwell allows me to take responsibility in which I would not have been able to in a larger company”.
The IT Company which was recently awarded Microsoft Silver Partner status is an innovative software house that provides secure and global software and database solutions. They have worked for a wide range of high profile clients and even helped deliver software solutions at the 2012 Olympics.
Managing Director of borwell, Steve Borwell-Fox commented:
“For many of my employees, this is their first job after college or university and therefore we help them develop skills needed for the job. All of the students from the college have fitted in well with the team, with each bringing their individual talents and expertise. The company provides many opportunities for employees to develop their skills and progress in their career. There is real potential for them and all of our employees to move up the ladder.”
The College seeks to provide students with a wide range of work based skills, allowing them to succeed in the world of work when they complete their qualifications at the College.
