Have not enjoyed the constant uncertainties regarding what was happening with our programme. this includes next steps and future exams.

The structure and organisation of our apprenticeship is a disgrace. An example of this is one of the exams we were due to sit we were given one weeks notice on the content of it and that content we had never seen before.

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


Very little support and as the programme has progressed we have been seemingly forgotten about and left to get on with it ourselves.

No support from training provider

The lack of organisation and transparency has lead to a very poor situation for ourselves in that we currently do not know which direction we are heading.
