8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

A very well organised placement with a 3-day induction before working in the office. This allowed an introduction to the Line of Service that I'd be working in and also a chance to network with the employees running these sessions. This also allowed the Interns to meet each other in a social scenario!
