IT and Computing Case Studies
Studying IT and computing at Lewisham Southwark College helped Ivan Klyuchev on the path to his dream job. Having started at the College as a Level 2 student, he is now working as a Technical Support Engineer at multinational technology company Oracle Corporation UK.
Ivan studied on the L2 Practitioners (System Support) Computing and IT course and gained his all-important Maths and English GCSEs at Lewisham Southwark College before progressing to the BTEC National Diploma L3, ICT Practitioners. This qualification enabled him to apply for a place on a Computer Science & Games Technologies degree at City, University of London.
Following his degree, Ivan decided it was time to apply the skills and knowledge he had gained in the workplace and won the role of Technical Support Engineer at Oracle Corporation UK after a competitive recruitment process.
