Discovering a new passion on her work placement

Ellie loves space and jumped at the chance to do a remote placement with the UK Space Agency but she didn’t expect to develop a new passion.

On my placement I got the opportunity to learn programming and how to code. The experience incorporated so many transferable skills and encouraged me to think analytically, which will really help in the final year of my maths degree and beyond.

It was such a phenomenal experience, I started my own business to inspire others to learn how to code.

Working with people who had lots of experience in industry just blew me away and it’s helped me to become so much more confident.
