I have learnt mainly on the job, i have learnt about such things as java, git, clear case, maven, chef, camel, spring, beans and much more. All of this has been thanks to the team i have been working in.

I enjoyed my job, however I feel the programme could be done a lot better for future apprentices.

4. How valued do you feel by Atos?


I have always felt valued on the team in which i worked on in Atos, however in terms of if i feel valued by the company i do not as there always seems to be a lot of uncertainty around the apprenticeship scheme.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


I believe there were a lot of factors that led to it being unstructured. I believe better planning would muchly improve this, however i do appreciate we are the 2nd intake of apprentices in where i am passed. I understand things aren't going to be perfect, but i believe more has been unstructured then structured.

The support i received from my training provider was mixed in terms of how good it was or in most cases, wasn't.
