1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am an Accessibility and Digital Inclusion Apprentice
my daily tasks often consist of accessibility testing, small parts of training with assistive technology as well as giving support for a range of assistive technology tools we provide.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
coming in to the field my apprenticeship is in I knew very little about accessibility so everything I have learned whilst on my apprenticeship has been a completely new experience
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I work as part of a team with five other apprentices this means that often we are at the same level of knowledge and can help each other out however we have had issues with training providers which has made the whole program slightly less enjoyable
4. How valued do you feel by Atos?
the apprenticeship scheme is often recognized throughout a number of our internal systems in a addition the field that my apprenticeship is in is quite a small field and because of this we are part of a relatively small team which has helped to make us feel of more value.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
our training was provided by QA who we have had a large number of issues with such as not getting work back up to a year after submission we have also had a few issues as our line manager left mid way through out apprenticeship.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
initially we had very little support from our training provider as our first assessor seemed to take a dislike to us however this has since been resolved and we have a different assessor who is quite supportive.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
our employer has been very supportive and has offered large amounts of guidance since we all had limited to no knowledge of the field before we started our apprenticeships
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
my salary more than meets my costs and there is the opportunity of wage rises every six months while on the apprenticeship scheme which gives even more expendable income.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
I am not aware of any opportunities outside but it has allowed me to meet other people of similar interests to myself of whom I can plan things with outside of work hours.
9a. Would you recommend Atos to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
my overall experience with ATOS has been quite positive and I believe I have learned quite a lot during my apprenticeship not only this but they do other training even when you have finished your apprenticeship to improve yourself further.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Atos? *
be prepared for any interviews that come your way and be open to advice from other people as most people will try and help you which will make your and their working life much easier.
