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


The Apprenticeship that Tech Data provided has been an eye opening experience to the IT distribution industry, It has provided valuable training in order to help boost my career in sales and experiences that a non apprenticeship role could not compete with. My role consists of account managing certain accounts - making sure I am giving them the great tech data experience .

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


I have learnt a lot of new communication skills - we did this through a new training scheme called natural training - this scheme helped break every bit communicating with a customer and allowed me to have a different insight into the way I speak to them, I also have learned a lot about technology - the apprenticeship has given me realms of product knowledge thanks to great training sessions

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?


The programme was very well structured, Even though the role is very busy the management have thought of a great scheme that allows me to do my day job but also have time to do my apprenticeship work on the side.

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


There is alot of training that we get given from Gk apprenticeships that we have to complete for our apprenticeship - this means that we do not get sucked into our day job and always have things to do. The training that Gk have provided have allowed me to expand my knowledge in things that cant be learnt on the job.
