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

8/10

My role as a degree apprentice at Morrison’s so far involves going through each department in order to learn the different aspects of the business. Through peak times I will be like leading in order to get a clear understanding of leadership roles. In the future I will be placed on a retail placement.

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

7/10

I have developed new skills in areas such as communication. This is because there is a language barrier within the factory. As well as this I have developed skills in how to address quality and safety within the factory.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

6/10

At the moment there has been parts which I enjoy and parts I do not. For example I have been frustrated when I have felt I’m not learning anything. However, it is difficult because of the busy schedule within the factory.

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

Not that I am aware of.
