1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I have various roles one a day to day basis as I can be on different projects. This is useful as I can learn a lot about different areas of the business. I also have time to do my QA Apprenticeship work.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learnt a lot of new skills. I have had training courses on Java and my next course is on SQL. I have found the teachers really friendly and helpful in my training.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I really enjoy the programme. I feel like it is aimed for my age range and works really well. I like how the QA training assignments can be moulded around my work life as I may be busy up to the due date with work.
4. How valued do you feel by CGI?
I feel part of the team here at CGI. Everyone is friendly and has welcomed me in. My manager is always available for any queries I have and gives me advice when I need it. I am very happy here.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I think that the programme is very well organized. I have been given a timetable with all my training so I can plan in advance when I will not be in the office. I also think that the time between courses are good as it allows me to get my assignment work done.

Lot of support is given to me from my training provider. I have their email address so I can get in contact with them whenever I need them and they are always quick with their responses.

My employer is very helpful. He is always available if I need to talk to him. If he's not in the office we also have his email to ask any questions we may have.

I feel that my salary is sufficient for my needs. I am fairly close to my office so travel costs are fairly low. I also do not own my own house yet so I have lower living costs.

There are many opportunities outside of work. We take part in football once a week and we are regularly invited to work outings to meet new people within the company. There is a local pub which some weeks we go down to on a Friday for lunch.
