5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I think the programme is well structured. I am at college a couple of days a month and so this means I do not miss out on a lot of work time and so I never feel as though I am falling behind.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I receive a lot of support from my training provider, First Intuition (Chelmsford). They have provided me with an excellent study pack and the tutor I have (Sara Smith) is a very good teacher. They have made it clear support is available at all times.

Mazars have provided a lot of support around my studies and are keen for me to take my exams.

My salary meets my costs well. I am still living at home and so I am never really struggling. If I were to move out things would be a bit tougher.

I have attended a few company events while working for Mazars that have been very helpful and allowed me to meet other people working in the firm from different departments etc.

9b. Why? *
They have been very supportive ever since I started and have provided excellent training which has improved my skills greatly.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Mazars LLP? *
Definitely apply to the school leaver schemes - it gives you the same level qualifications as going to university at the end of it but also provides work experience at the same time. Be very prepared for the interviews - do a lot of research about the firm before. Be prepared for a lot of travelling between clients too.
