3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


Exceeded my expectations. I feel very motivated in my role and thoroughly enjoy the work that I do at the FCA.

4. How valued do you feel by FCA?


I feel that my team particularly value me very highly. I have a lot of internal recognition and know that I will be supported and rewarded in my role.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


The structure is good for the most part, with monthly meetings amongst the apprentices. This feels just enough.

The only thing that has felt slightly mis-structured is the turn over in managers running the scheme but this has not hindered my progress.

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


I see my talent coach once a month which is good. The learning for my coursework was online via a video platform which I didn't find as engaging and found it harder to connect to the theory side, but it didn't feel too hard to get to grips with.

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


My team understand that I need to balance my responsibilities between work and my apprenticeship and this makes me feel very supported. My manager [This section of the comment has been removed by a member of the RateMyApprenticeship Team because it did not meet our site terms and conditions] is excellent, friendly and backs me in everything that I do. The HR team are also good for when I require help.

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


Great for living costs - not so good for travel costs, but it is still a very competitive apprenticeship salary (and I do live out of London).

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


I go to a lot of events and get a wide range of experiences. I am encouraged to have external training which provides me with learning that I wouldn't necesssarily find in the workplace.

9. Would you recommend FCA to a friend?


9b. Why?

Incredibly productive, supportive work place and I feel I have set myself up for a good career by starting here.

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

Ensure you have designated time to ensure you juggle your work and coursework/exams.
