Introduction Letter

Hi I have attached a copy of my C.V and i would like to know if you have any Apprenticeships available for a website designer.

I am currently studying Information Technology at Anglia Polytechnic University in Chelmsford, Essex , I am on my third year and have completed a Level 2 BTEC First Diploma and I am now coming to the end of my level 3 Course in IT. I have the opportunity to keep on studying here as an apprentice if i find a company that is offering apprenticeships. I am currently working at CGI  in Brentwood on the IT helpdesk which i enjoy but as I am about to finish my course I would like to search for future employment.

I am a strong and hard-working individual looking for the first step into a future career, I enjoy meeting new people and can get on well working within different working environments. I enjoy working with computers and I would like the opportunity to keep on learning as much as I can so I can then hopefully have a permanent career within this industry.

I am currently doing a unit within my course that involves using Adobe Photoshop and Dreamweaver which I am really enjoying, I would like the opportunity to learn more and as much as I can about this as I would if I can find a full time career within this business. If you are offering apprenticeships then I would like this very much, if you are then would you please contact me back or contact the college direct
