You’ll meet apprentices across the business and get involved in some exciting team building activities. You’ll learn about our range of products and be part of a working group to generate new ideas to build your confidence. You’ll also spend time with your Qualification Assessor, so you know what is expected of you in your role.

During the first 6 months of the learning process post training, you will be assigned a mentor. We’ll also support you further so you can learn from experienced professionals ‘on the job’ and receive dedicated support to help you develop your knowledge and succeed. You’ll remain in your apprentice training group throughout this period which will give you the opportunity to make friends and build on your experience together.
