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


I am a test and commission engineer, this involves commissioning substations and feeder stations onto the Network Rail infrastructure.

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


When I came to Siemens I knew nothing about the railway. Now I have completed my apprenticeship I know everything I need to know to go out on my own as a test and commission engineer.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoyed my program, Siemens was fairly new to the apprenticeship program and has now grown into a fantastic company to go through the scheme with. there are lots of different options and job roles which you are encouraged to try.

4. How well organised/structured is your programme?


At the beginning it was poor but has now come on leaps and bounds.

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


I have received a fantastic level of support from the company and they have always been helpful and done their best to meet all of my needs.

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


This has been a slightly rough road as we have had multiple issues with the collages but the company has always done their best to help us through the issues.

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


The things I have learned with Siemens are the reason I am able to do my job today. I struggled with the college work as I felt it was too vague and didn't really match my job.

There are always opportunity to take part in events outside of work.
