  • Yes, I have learnt and developed many skills. It is a great opportunity to learn commercial skills and develop any previous understanding you had in a business setting.


  • 3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
  • The scheme is great, it combines the opportunity to learn and work in the largest food and drinks manufacturer in the world but also having the opportunity to earn a degree and enjoy the social aspects that come with that.


  • 4. How well organised/structured is your programme?
  • The scheme is structured well, rotations in the business are pre planned to ensure as an apprentice the role suits and you can take responsibility. The opportunity for training is provided and line managers are aware of what you do and your needs as an apprentice.
