New apprentice joins Digital Innovators

At the end of a very busy week preparing for the start of our new programmes, we have some exciting news to share. Digital Innovators has appointed Steven Swann as Junior Project Manager Apprentice. 

Steven joins the team to support the delivery of our skills programmes across the West Midlands. This might be his first week, but he’s already a bit of an expert having completed the Digital Innovators course himself last year.

Mick Westman, Founder of Digital Innovators, said: “I am thrilled to welcome Steven to our team. Steven is a prime example of what we are all about. Through his involvement in our Skills Programme, he demonstrated real potential in project management and team working, and we’re delighted to be able to offer him an opportunity to build on his skills through an apprenticeship.”

Steven will work alongside other members of the team, focusing on recruiting and supporting students, liaising with employers and overseeing work placement projects.

Steven Swann said: “I’m really excited to be joining Digital Innovators. I really enjoyed the course I did with the team last year and I can’t wait to share my experiences with new students who could benefit in the same way I have.”

Steven’s arrival isn’t the only news we’re celebrating this week. Fellow project manager apprentice, Chris Kennedy, marks his one year anniversary at Digital Innovators this week. Chris has been keeping our team on track throughout lockdown, making sure that remote working doesn’t get in the way of progress. He’s also taken on the challenge of presenting to groups of young people about why they should sign up for the Digital Innovators course.

“Chris is a real asset to our team, and I know he will give Steven plenty of help over the coming weeks, both of whom will be supported by Harry Paige, our relationship manager. Between them, they will make sure the students joining our programme  get off to a great start and feel supported throughout their Digital Innovators journey.” Mick added.
