This programme has enabled me to really learn techniques and tools to implement in the workplace to really try becoming a better leader. So it’s really given me fantastic ideas and a general ability to make the most out of my time at the company, and how I work and interact with people.

I think doing the apprenticeship programme is a journey. I’ve found out more about myself than I’ve ever really thought about before. And I think it’s not only been a journey to help me to develop my career, it’s also been a journey about discovering more about myself. That’s just been really powerful.
