My trainging provider was very supportive and easily contactable, she made sure that whenever I contacted her with a question she answered quickly no matter what the time or day.

I felt that the support I received from my employer could have been better, during the apprenticeship term we are suppossed to have an hour off the phone every month to spend time on our work. During the whole time doing my work myself and other in my team on the course have only had two or three hours off, and those were very difficult to organise.
