I feel valued, however sometimes recognition can be lacking from individual managers. The pay could be better and more reflective of what I do for the company.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

The programme is well structured. however, I would rather to know my exam dates more in advance so it is easier to arrange holidays etc. I do not like the BPP/ apprenticeship side of the programme though as I do not feel this is relevant to my career or the programme I joined to do as this does not help me in my ACA/CFAB
