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 The college keep messing up and delaying everything. The practical side of the apprenticeship is a little better but its nothing to write home about. Support is good though if you have any issues...... which you will have.

In the business, you get quite a bit of support and guidance if you need it. As for the tutors at the college, sometimes they just shrug it off. Im talking about Derby college
