“Russell has helped guide me through the Apprenticeship and thanks to QA they have allowed me to gain a qualification and a job at the end of it. I am delighted to be a part of the team at HSCHT, they have made me feel welcome and have helped to educate me further in my progression. I would like to thank HSCHT, QA, and Russell for helping me gain a Diploma in Digital Applications Support”.
Aidan was awarded his certificate by Russell McKay, Senior Technical Skills Coach with QA, who has mentored Aidan throughout his apprenticeship. Russell said:
“It has been a great pleasure to coach this young, inspirational Apprentice, and to be part of Aidan’s journey through to achievement in Digital Application Support within a great company, HSCHT”.
Aidan has been a great support to the team and will stay on in a permanent role providing IT and Digital Support. CEO, Ronnie MacRae congratulated Aidan after his presentation:
“We’re delighted to have Aidan as part of our team and for HSCHT to support the Modern Apprenticeship scheme, keeping young talent in our area and helping the Highland economy.”
