I have really enjoyed the BBC Make it Digital traineeship, and the staff at Babington have been really helpful and polite. I have gained lots of new skills with them, including better time management, employability skills, and the ability to work in a team.
My work placement was with Bolton FM radio station and it was really fun, I got the chance to take part in events, guest starred in some radio shows, and even got the ability to host my own show! I made loads of new friends and picked up many new digital media skills, including coding, video production, blogging, and how to create my own website.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience, and I will recommend my family and friends to choose Babington and Make it Digital for a traineeship!
