4. How well organised/structured is your programme?

10/10

It has been well organised and structutred throughout. I also had to take a break in learning at one point in the apprenticeship and this was handled very well.

Premier give me the time I need to be able to complete the tasks and exams etc that are required as part of the apprenticeship

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

Davies have been very good with me throughout the apprenticeship. I always get an answer when I ask questions of the mentor and they were very accomodating when I needed to take a break in learning

I have a much more detailed understanding of credit control and some of the legal side of things than I had before the CICM qualification

10/10

There are several different social groups and charity activities that Premier actively encourages its staff to get involved in wherever possible

9a. Would you recommend Premier Foods to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

They are an excellent employer, they treat their staff with respect, fairness and a personal touch that you wouldnt normally find at such a large company.

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

Premier is an excellent company to work for, a good example of this is that, throughout the covid pandemic, they have bent over backwards to accomodate staff at both the factories and the offices in ensuring that staff are safe and arent forced into anything that they arent comfortable with. I would say be yourself and they will accommodate you as best they can!
