Ellis completes his Level 3 Unified Communications Technician apprenticeship

After a year of remote studying and developing skills here at Start Tech, we’re pleased to announce that Ellis Williams has passed his apprenticeship to become a Level 3 Unified Communications Technician having been graded ‘Distinction’.


Ellis, who joined us last August, has got to experience the ins and outs of IT by working in our Service Desk department, working with our clients whilst studying for his qualification with Escalla.

As part of his apprenticeship, Ellis has specifically developed the following skills:

  • Establish and maintain basic communication systems
  • Use a range of remote and physical tools and equipment
  • Install basic communication hardware and software
  • Deal with routine service requests from internal and external sources.

Going forward, Ellis will work as a Technician within the Service Desk department here at Start Tech. Working as part of a small team, Ellis will be responsible for processing tickets, handling customer requests and liaising with the relevant team members to action these.

Ellis is our second apprentice this year to complete his studies alongside on-the-job training, following in the footsteps of James Walton, who passed the same apprenticeship course this summer. In total, five members of Start Tech have joined us as apprentices

“Start Tech is a great place to work, and I’ve enjoyed learning from the various team members here. Every day I’m able to develop my knowledge and learn something new, which has helped me enormously throughout my studies. I’m excited to progress my role and become a qualified Technician and help keep things running smoothly on the Service Desk.”

Well done, Ellis!
