Aston University: Elle Hornby

Elle Hornby graduated from Aston University in 2018 after completing the digital and technology solutions degree apprenticeship with Capgemini

Elle said: “I have worked since I was 16 and I saw an apprenticeship with a reputable company as a great option to earn and learn. I wanted a head start on my career and joining Capgemini at 18 and balancing studying and working has given me a first class degree, key skills and a wealth of knowledge and experience at just 24.”

“The highlight has to be my graduation day, all of the hard work I had put in over the years was celebrated in one day and I was surrounded by my friends and family. It really put into perspective what a journey I had been on.”

“My degree apprenticeship proved to me how determined I am and showed me how I can tackle any subject and succeed. I believe this has taught me to be more resilient and I know that if I put the hard work in I can achieve anything. I’ve come a long way since I started at Capgemini and I’m now working at a senior level managing graduates. I credit this to the attitude I developed through the apprenticeship programme.”
