Many of our apprentices with Iress have gone on to achieve distinctions in their programmes and progress to more senior roles within the company. We love sharing the success stories of our apprentices here at Gloucestershire College so we caught up with Ben Carter, Apprentice Software Engineer at Iress, to share his experience of what life is like as an apprentice and why he decided to choose the apprenticeship route.

Anna was a science teacher for 25 years, working in schools and colleges across the county before she became a full-time carer for her father in 2017 and started studying accounting to keep her brain active.
