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


My role currently is at college completing the btec part of my qualification. On a day to day basis I have to attend college to complete assignments and learn about the next assignments that will be coming up. As well as the btec I have also began to start the nvq however most of this will be completed in my second year.

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


I have developed many of my existing skills as this apprenticeship is very similar to the one which I started last year with a different company. As well as this I have learnt many new skills which I would not have been able to learn unless I done this apprenticeship

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoy the apprenticeship program that Siemens have provided massively. The college course is good, always keeping me learning more and the other parts of the apprenticeship such as the sea survival and similar training is very good and exciting as it is teaching me new things whucg I have never done before

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?


The apprenticeship is very well organized, there is always someone to go to if I need help/assistance with anything. All the course is very well planned out and often everything is sorted so that we are never left guessing what is going to happen. Overall the course is very well structured

5. How much support do you receive from your employer?


I receive a lot of support from my employer, not just to do with work but with any other issues I have such as accommodation or holidays. The company as a whole encourage me to ask for help if I get stuck and my employer is always happy for me to come forward with any concerns that I have.

6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?


I receive very good support from my training provider. They always are keen to see how we are doing with the course and if we struggle with anything. As well as this they have meeting with the lectures to make sure that we are doing well in our course and that we are on track to pass

7. How well do you feel that your qualification (through your training provider) helps you to perform better in your role?


I think that the college qualifications help to show our ability to learn and the nvq helps me get a better understanding of some of the work that I will be doing in the future. Despite it not being as advanced it still helps me grasp a basic understanding. The btec is helpful for me to learn entirely new topics

8. Are there extra-curricular activities to get involved in at your work? (For example, any social activities, sports teams, or even professional networking events.)


Work has a few extra curricular activities that we have heard of however they have not happened yet so we have not had the opportunity to take part. They seem excited to get us involved in representing the company at extra curricular events to help out the community and give Siemens a good name.

9a. Would you recommend Siemens to a friend?


9b. Why?

I would recommend Siemens because they have provided me with what I need above and beyond my expectations. It has been and is very exciting to work for them knowing the future prospects and potential to progress and advance within the company. As well as this there are many benefits to working for such as large company such as the pension scheme and discounts

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Siemens?

I would tell others applying for the job that they need to be prepared to travel for the time that they are on the apprenticeship scheme as parts of the course are held in different places across the company. As well as this I would say that if you get the job then just get stuck in, always ask questions and sign yourself to as much as possible.
