2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I've met some very interesting and helpful people within the company and the other interns on the programme have become very good friends. There are social opportunities after work and this gives us chance to meet new people and network in a fun environment

I feel very valued and as though I am needed and they put effort into improving me as an employee. They always give us chance to improve ourselves and they're happy to help with any issues we have
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I've only been on the programme for 3 weeks last summer I will continue for the next 2 years, so far the structure has been ver organised and I have known my job role each and how to approach every situation due to the organisation of the company
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I've received lots of training from the company and my manager in particular sends me emails checking up and giving me opportunities throughout the year. They keep us updated on what is happening regarding any aspect of our programme which keeps peace of mind.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I receive regular updates and emails from my employer and they help me even during the time I'm not on placement. My employer gives us flexi time and this is very helpful with different matters and enables us to have a life outside of work
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
It meets my costs very well however I don't earn much after the internship due to having to pay for accommodation in london. Living in london is expensive so it is a greater expense than living at home during the summer so a salary is needed

there are opportunities to improve the programme and help to advertise the brand name. They have lots of social opportunities after work with fellow employees and the other interns. We also have a chance to play a sport for the company allowing us to feel more involved.
