6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


For each task I was given, my supervisor ran it through with me once-twice so I could understand it and made step to step notes if it was particularly complicated. They then watched me complete the task and after left me to do it by myself, though I was able to ask any questions I had.

My employer explained the process at the start, caught up with me briefly every day and then gave me a final debrief on the last day which was very useful.
