I feel valued by Egger as they have given me my own responsiblities within my department. I have regular meetings with my manager to review my progress, They have also put me on several courses in different areas to help my increase my knowledge and understanding of my job and the business.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
My program is very organised as at the beginning I had an induction week where we were able to increase our knowledge and understanding of the different areas of the business and how it works. We also were introduced to our individual departments. I have a meeting with my training provider once a month, I think the coursework structure/deadlines for this could be clearer.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I have a meeting with my training provider once a month however, I am able to email or call if I need to. At our meetings once a month we meet to go through the units in my course and to set new work to complete. They also provide training in specific areas if needed. However, I think that the structure of the course could be better and clearer and the meetings with the training provider could be more often.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I recieve alot of support from my employer, I have no hesitation to ask questions if i am unsure, need help or don't understand something as everyone is very helpful and understanding. They also have many training courses in different areas to help to increase knowledge in the area and to give you a better understanding.
