I have been attending a number of training courses through my apprenticeship provider, QA, and this has taught me various new skills. I have also had plenty of opportunity to develop existing skills.

Currently I am enjoying my program a lot. I feel like I am valued and fit in with my colleagues and have been provided with everything I need.
