Very much so - as touched on above I'm given freedom and responsibility to undertake projects as I deem most appropriate. But, as a happy medium I am given ample support should I require escalation.

A very good amount - my Work Based Learning Manager (WBLM) has come to be a friend as much as a professional colleague, providing guidance and support through the scheme.

My line manager is fantastically supportive if my personal and professional developments - providing time as needed for me to complete my obligations.
