1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am a software engineer in the company, as we are IT Consultants my day to day role varies from month to month which makes it very interesting. I have been in intensive training for three months before being put on project and I am always given the extra training I require for any new project. As a result I am always highly prepared for any task or job that I am given. My main responsibilities are the maintenance of back end software for companies at this current moment.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
Yes, I was taught Java and SQL at the beginning of my course from a basic level which was great as I had not done either of these coding languages before. I have also had powercentre training for my current project.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I love my program it provides the right amount of learning with on the job experience. As an apprentice I am very highly thought of which surprised me and made me feel more welcomed within every team I have worked with.
4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?
I feel highly valued as an employee and apprentice and these are two very different things as I am given extra days off in the year for my studies which is great but I am not held back in anyway from feeling like a full time employee even though I get this benefit of study days.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The program is well structured and the degree I am partaking in is Bespoke for our company and the things we are taught directly transfer to what we use day to day at work and vice versa.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I receive help from my training provider when I require it and I am always asked and checked that the work load is never too much which it never is, there are many places to go for help and the company as a whole are very understanding of the position we as apprentices are in and how much we are doing outside the normal 9 to 5.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
Lots the help is always there in the teams we work in and outside there is a team of people who are dedicated to our well being and this can come in many forms from just keeping us calm when stressed to helping us get through work or get past specifically hard tasks which are presented to us.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
It more than covers my costs I am paid expenses for any extra travel I have to do so travel costs never worry me and my pay covers everything and anything I could want with spare which I personally put into savings for a house.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Yes there are always opportunities arising to show you want to help in the business and for them to help you enjoy yourself. I have helped out at promotional events for inviting young students to enquire and see what an apprenticeship is like. And also for the fun side of things we have done many social events eg a bowling night and curry night.
