Meet The Apprentices: Rowan Farmer
By Stuart Janicki • 13 Aug 2013
Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship?
I started the first year of A-levels and I found they started out well but as time went on I found that A-levels were going against my preferred method of learning which is a hands on approach. After my last exam I started looking into college as the method is more technical rather than theory. Once I got accepted I looked for an apprenticeship but in case I didn’t find the right one I had college to fall back on. Luckily for me the first apprenticeship I applied for (the one I am now) accepted me so I began the long journey in the field of work.
What are you hoping to learn?
Ultimately I am planning to learn more about cloud systems as I believe that they are the future and are getting more popular every day. The cloud industry is one that is expanding and soon everyone will be jumping on board but I like the idea of Office 365 and would like to expand my knowledge of that particular product.
What’s your ultimate job?
Professional gamer (I’m 17 it’s allowed!)
Can you tell us a joke?
Why does a cow have a bell? Because its horns don’t work!
What are your hobbies?
Playing online games as part of an amateur team, making basic YouTube videos, playing basketball and baking (occasionally)
Can you tell us a random fact about anything?
The 57 on Heinz ketchup bottles represents the number of varieties of pickles the company once had.
