Overview

1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.

Very good in terms of work and pay. Enjoyable experience - had a really good principal and everyone I interacted with was willing to help and talk about their work. The work involved three simulation tasks which mirrored what trainees may be required to do. Challenging but definitely a good way to grow.
