Varied role which involves planning and control within the supply chain logistics operations, I could be involved with suppliers or projects to different extents daily.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

6/10

I have built confidence in myself with me moving around the business a lot and getting involved with several different projects.

We get a management and leadership qualification as well which will benefit in the long run.

The program has gone through some changes during my time but is getting standardised so will be good for new comers. Training has been constant throughout and the support you get is really useful. You get studying time to do NVQ or uni work where necessary.

The assessors are really helpful and know what they are doing, they help to push you to do more work and make sure you know where you can fill in any gaps to try push you to complete the NVQ

The employers are good because most managers know you are an apprentice and tailor placements to suit the NVQ work you need completing, they will usually also allow time to write up NVQ within the work place as well.

The salary is good for the age group it is advertised at, with you getting a degree as well you know you are not going into debt.

There is a leisure group for you to join sports teams and attend events and a lot of the placement teams also organise events. Throughout the apprenticeship the apprenticeship team also arrange social events to keep everyone interested.
