Josh Thompson - Technical Trainer

Topic

[Trainers and Assessors]

I originally started on an apprenticeship programme through Baltic at another company as an IT Technician. I did both my Level 3 and 4 but I wanted to get into education, so I ended up joining Baltic to become a junior trainer!

In my previous roles, I have had the opportunity to be a Senior IT Technician. I also used to be a support worker when I left school and looked after people with learning difficulties.

I have qualifications in CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+, Certificate in Education & Training.

Working at Baltic

I have been at Baltic for a little over a year now, I have enjoyed every single moment of my time here.

In my role, I am a Junior Technical Trainer here at Baltic. My responsibilities include training apprentices in Level 3 IT Infrastructure, I also dabble a bit at Level 4.

The thing I enjoy most about my role is that every day is different and I get to meet completely new learners every week and help them pass certain courses that help towards the contribution of their apprenticeship. My favourite memory of working here is to just work at Baltic in general, I love the opportunities that I have been offered.
