Member post

Two computer technicians from an academy in Coventry have received promotions after completing their apprenticeships.

Cern Diston has completed his Level 4 Network Engineer course and is taking on the role of Senior Technician, while Kamran Bhakta has been promoted to Junior IT Technician after two years at Romero Catholic Academy while completing his Infrastructure Technician course from level 3.

The couple, who both qualified through Primary Goal, will continue to be based at Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School, but will provide remote support at Romero Catholic Academy’s seven primary schools.

Primary Goal is a national digital industries apprenticeship training provider that works with schools and businesses to deliver high quality teaching and learning programs.

CERN said: “The Level 4 course helped me to learn more about computer problems, not only to be able to fix the problems, but to know how they could have been caused in the first place.

“The new position comes with a lot more responsibility and means that I will work more closely with any new staff that arrives and help them find their place, which I look forward to.

“The learning curve has been tough at times, but I’ve had a lot of support to help me succeed, and I can’t wait to start in my new role this term.”

Kamran said: “I have really enjoyed the past two years and learned a lot during my apprenticeship and from my colleagues along the way and I hope I can continue to grow as part of a great team.”

Hitesh Vara, IT Manager at Romero Catholic Academy, said, “Kamran and Cern are two highly valued members of the team and we are delighted to have been able to support their personal development.

“The apprenticeships have posed many challenges, but they have both been able to overcome them and they will continue to provide a high standard of service throughout Romero Catholic Academy, taking on more responsibility as they progress in their career here.”
