1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
I am working as a store apprentice within one of the aldi stores in the Neston region.I get to perform daily tasks such as till work, stock rotation,working deliveries,checking deliveries,date checking and also providing good customer service all of the time. I also have the pleasure of working with an excellent team.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
before I started my apprenticeship with Aldi, I would be that person who would hide behind their book so that the teacher wouldn't pick them to read in class, I would get really nervous and shy when speaking in front of other people that I never knew.I believe in the time that I have been here, Aldi has aided me into being a much more confident person and have removed that uncomfortable feeling when speaking to other people.

I am really enjoying my programme I feel that it is the perfect job and opportunity for me to progress and do well within the company. I enjoy working as part of a team.

They also find the best times for when I can speak to my assessor about the progress that I am making, and are very flexible when it comes to arranging the next meeting.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I receive a lot of support from my training provider, they are always interested with what done that week and weather I am improving. my training provider regularly comes in to see my and sets me questions so that I can learn as much as possible when it comes to my role as a apprentice.
