4. How valued do you feel by Boots?

8/10

Very valued. The business makes it clear that I am integral to its success. My line manager takes time to review my progress and highlight any areas for development to enable me to achieve my career goals. I also have a mentor in the cohort above who helps with this.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

Strong induction training - 'stay in touch' day to allow all apprentices to meet. Organised team building activities and organised college/study days which make it easier to socialise with other apprentices and allocate time to complete my qualification.

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

Lots of support, my Babington college tutor has enabled me to get a head start on my qualification by answering all of my queries and arranging prompt assessment dates for any units that I complete.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

8/10

A lot of support. Weekly meetings with line manager to review progress and raise concerns and apprentice team are very approachable so I can voice concerns if needed.

Good starting salary but no mention of pay rise once qualification is complete. Bonuses are good.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

Plenty of opportunity so far to be an 'apprentice ambassador' and help to promote the early careers programmes. Haven't been informed of any opportunities to get involved with other projects/events/classes.
