Very well, the business works well with the provider to give a well structured programme over the 3-4 years you are on the course and in the company.

I have weekly catch ups with my manager and have monthly mentoring from more senior members of the business. I would say support is easily accessible for any apprentice that needs or asks for it.

9/10

For anyone wanting to extend their work outside their 9-5 there are plenty of opportunities that can be taken advantage of. These are done based on apprentices being proactive and setting this up however once there is an interest there is plently else to do.

Yes

Strong career and personal development opportunites and feel valued as a young employee who will be given real work and real business projects and not just basic 'admin' tasks.
