In my day to day role, I work with product literature, update previous pieces of work, help co-workers with organising events and putting work through OLIVER to be updated.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learnt new skills on how to appropriately address customers/colleagues, how to edit emails to have an automated response, developed my skills in using Excel.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I really enjoy the programme as I get to work with an amazing company, and work with highly qualified co-workers. I get the chance to travel and meet other members on my sale team and also other apprentices within 3M.
4. How valued do you feel by 3M?
I feel very valued by 3M as I feel that my role is quite an important one. This is because I have the role of updating pieces of work that sales members will be using throughout the year.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme I am on is well structured and organised as it allows me time to do coursework and also get important tasks at work done. I have people I can talk to, to help with all of my work as well.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I receive a lot of support from my training provider. I have my boss and also my tutor to help me with anything if I ever need it. My tutor helps out with work when she visits and also checks regularly if I am enjoying my work and if I have any issues.

I receive a lot of support from my employer. She is very supportive in the work I produce and provides constructive criticism when needed and will help me out with any tasks I find challenging.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
My salary covers all of my costs. It pays for my travel expenses and more without me feeling like I'm going to struggle. It also allows me to treat myself to certain things without having to worry.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
There are opportunities outside of work, not many but there are a few. I get to do my apprentice training out of work and also meet sales reps around the country. Occasionally we will go for a team lunch somewhere nearby.
