4. How valued do you feel by Capgemini?


The apprentices are highly valued at the company they are the backbone of the day to day runnings

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


It is very well structured we know when our assignments are due and how long modules run for. As well as this we have many days off for our degree and we know exactly when they are. The course runs in 3 18 month segments.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


You have tons of support as the course does not have many students compared to normal University courses so whilst attending University days the teaching feels more one to one rather than sitting in a huge lecture theatre with many students

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


Like I had already said the company gives you study leave as and when you need more than enough time for you to catch up on assignments if you are behind

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


The salary is probably one of the best points of the apprenticeship not only is my degree sponsors but I get a generous salary as well with pay reviews quite frequently

The company has many social events outside of work to get involved in as well as many volunteering opportunities

9a. Would you recommend Capgemini to a friend? *


9b. Why? *

If the above hasn't justified why I would recommend the company also supply apprentices with a laptop, phone and Amex so all costs are covered through and through

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Capgemini? *

Have a real passion to want to do the job experience isn't needed just raw interest in the field that you are applying to if that is shown you will do well no matter what
