3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

4. How valued do you feel by Premier Foods?
I have been given a large amount of responsibility within the company very quickly so I feel highly valued. I have regular meetings with my senior manager in order to discuss my progress. I am on a number of projects and I am regularly asked for my opinion.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
I have a 1 on 1 tutor who comes to site every few weeks to work with me regarding my university work. I am also regularly delegated tasks by the rest of the team on an ad hoc basis, sometimes it is a struggle to complete these tasks promptly but I feel I have learnt a lot.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I have a tutor who regularly comes to site and is also contactable at all times. If i was to have any issues I know he would do his best to help, I find him easy to work with.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
My employer helps me whenever I ask for help. In the most part I continue and manage my own learning and time, this suits me best.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
The salary/package is a little tight during the apprenticeships, however the wage/role once the apprenticeship is over is very good. I regularly travel back home and live in sheffield, if you manage your costs correctly then it is achievable.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
If you wished there is a sports and social club and a golf club however I tend to socialise with friends outside of work. I also travel around 90 miles home every weekend so my opportunities are limited.
9a. Would you recommend Premier Foods to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
There is an opportunity to earn a good wage once qualified, also the experience gained is incredibly beneficial once the apprenticeship is over.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Premier Foods? *
Learn as much about the company as possible before the interview/assessment day I believed this helped me get the apprenticeship.
