  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • I attended meetings hosted by a range of employees at the Bank of England. They discussed the application process for degree apprenticeships, the experiences which current and former degree apprentices had had and some of the wider benefits of being employed at the Bank of England.

    Business Insight

  • 3. What was it like understanding all about the business and potential roles available?
  • It was very useful to learn more about the potential roles available and has helped me to gain a better understanding of what undertaking a degree apprenticeship with the BoE would involve. It was both interesting and insightful to hear from employees and apprentices about the working environment of the BoE. The experience provided my with a level of information that I would have been unable to find anywhere else.
