1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


My Job as an Premier Foods Apprentice is to shadow the mechanical and electrical Engineers and gain experience on maintaining the machinery.

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


I have learnt many new skills as well as developing existing skills that I brought to my apprenticeship. I have extended my electrical knowledge and I am currently studying electrical drawings which I then put into practice by building circuits based on my drawings improving my practical skills at the same time. My mechanical skills have also developed as every week I am faced with a different type of breakdown which normally requires a new part being fit or made to measure.

My apprenticeship as a multi-skilled is very enjoyable as every day I am faced with a different task.
