I think that the programme is organised in terms of the layout of the apprenticeship and the qualifications you have to complete. However I think that the organisation could be better within the college environment.

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


Due to being split between two training providers it is difficult to access support from tutors for the foundation degree. However, the training provider I do my workshops with put sessions on for me to speak to the lecturers there if I need any help.

When in plant the team is very supportive and will help with any problems I have. If I have any problems with college I have a training manager which I can speak to about the problem to which he will then try to solve or solve together.
