2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

To some colleagues I felt very close while others didn't seem to have much time for me. So a mix but nothing offensive.

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

My manager was away for two weeks so obviously support was lacking at this point. Overall I found I had to personally drive my internship.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

There were days that flew by due to the amount of interesting work I was doing, however there were also days that I can't say I did anything meaningful on.

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

I had to take responsibility for myself during the placement.

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

I found myself at a loose end a fair bit. Seemed that the centre didn't really know what to do with me.

9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

I do feel that I have developed over the 7 weeks and that is due to the firm investment.

I really enjoyed the social side with other interns.
