4. How valued do you feel by Atos?
I feel quite valued by the accessibility team however as an employee of the company i am just a number on the system especially being an apprentice.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
Overall this was the disappointing factor during the apprenticeship programme, I have had ongoing 4 different assessors, not knowing where I was with the assignments a lot of the time and to be told when I thought I had sent all my assignments that i still had two left that needed to be completed. Overall not much co-ordination after the 1st month with QA, felt like I had just been forgotten about.

The employer provides a number of different routes whenever I need advice or to ask questions. Senior members in the team also provide guidance and experience to help us progress.

The salary is good for the age that I am employed at however there has been delays in the contracted pay rises I was supposed to get after my formal reviews.

I have been able to attend a few conferences regarding my field of work which is always a positive feeling and to meet people in the industry who can provide more insight and knowledge to help me progress. It also shows how our work helps people
