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


My daily tasks are to learn the operations and process of making Salbutamol Sulphate which goes into Ventolin inhalers. I am responsible for my development, so have to keep myLearning up to date, as well as go on any relevant courses required. I get involved in problem solving and cleaning of the building I work in.

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


I have learnt many new skills since beginning my apprenticeship, for example basic knowledge of the plant I am working on and how to use specialised equipment. I have developed teamwork, communication and problem solving since starting at GSK.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I really enjoy my apprenticeship, I like to be challenged so this kind of environment is perfect for me. It is very interesting as I also get an insight to many different departments on site and what they do in relation to producing.

I have only just finished my first assessment through my training provider so I don't really know yet.
