    Your Impressions

  • 6. To what extent did you enjoy your placement / internship?
  • My placement year has taught me so many things I wouldn't have even thought of before starting here at Toyota GB. One of the biggest things for me was to develop my interpersonal skills (alongside business critical skills of course), and I'm glad that I've been given training and opportunities to evolve these. I'm excited to take everything I've learnt back to university for final year of teaching.
