On a day to day basis my role normally includes being part of the assembly line in the factory, this will soon change and I will then move to the stores department where i will be for several months. I will then move into the offices which i will move around departments to find which one I am best suited to.

I have learnt new skills and developed my existing skills. At college we are learning new things every week to do with our course which is electrical based. We are learning a wide range of electrical skills that I didnt know already and also improving my knowledge i already had.
