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

10/10

My roles was to learn about management and gain skills to receive my level 2 management qualification. That entailed learning how to set out letters, performing a dragons den in front of many important people, doing coursework etc. The day mainly involved working as a group with the other trainees and learning management skills.

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

10/10

I have learnt many management skills as that was the main qualification that was being received. I also learnt to work on my own communication skills with others as activities such as dragons den helped me boost my confidence. We were taught what to say when going for an interview and how to behave which was also very helpful in finding a job. Another skill was learning IT skills along the way with the computers given to us. We learnt how to make conference calls.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

10/10

I enjoyed it very much. I was able to gain contacts which I could receive help from in the future as well as learn a bit more of what I would want to go into as a future career. Part of the program was working with the ministry of justice and meeting the people who worked there as well as going to the courts helped me decide the degree I wanted to do in uni.

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

10/10

The structure was very well organised. Activities were structured to how it would be in school day but with more freedom. Activities were never lacking and were always completed. The program also allowed us to go on a few trips to visit other places which helped as we were allowed to visit other places instead of being stuck in one. As well as that, to complete the courses graduation was done to finalise the program.

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

10/10

A lot of support was received throughout and after the program. Any questions were answered in person and after hours via email. Course work was also heavily supported by workers and the employer which helped those who weren’t used to doing course work. Any help or questions asked for after the program was still answered by workers especially about my future career.

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

10/10

A lot of support was given, after hour support helped a lot as some course work had to be done at home. One of the main purposes for the apprenticeship was to revive the management qualification. Even on the day of the graduation, we were helped to ensure we would receive the qualification.

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

10/10

As a student and someone who works part time, the qualification helps a lot. It gives me something extra to add in my ucas application as well as perform better when working with customers. I learnt to be more confident in myself which was something I lacked the most as well as speaking in front of others.

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.)

10/10

We did take part in a networking event where people from different career sectors as well as people who worked in the ministry of justice came to socialise with us and answered any questions we asked. This did entail in receiving a mentor from the people we met which helped greatly with my university application. We also took part in a dragons den activity which was to sell a phone to the board of “dragons”. This was a good learning experience and was very fun to do.

9a. Would you recommend EY to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

Helped give me the skills that I lacked such as IT, communication, management. I was also confused about where I want to apply and what degree I wanted to do in university. The experience of doing the different activities as well as going to the ministry of justice helped me decide.

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

Make sure you talk to as many people as possible especially in a networking event. It helps a lot later. Also don’t be scared on the first day, there are many other people who won’t know eachother and friends will be made along the way. Take full advantage of the opportunity as it’s not something that happens very often.
