    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I found the placement a struggle to motivate myself and not become bored. Ideally I would have liked more responsibility or at least more entertaining roles.

    2/5

    3/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Management weren't really interested or bothered about me. I tried to discuss my feelings with them but they didnt really listen.

    1/5

  • 4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
  • There were busy and quiet periods which made it difficult to establish any sort of routine or mindset.

    2/5

  • 5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
  • Nothing really. I would have liked more responsibililty would definitely have made the placement seem more worthwhile.

    1/5

  • 6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
  • They will help a bit but can't say they'll help me massively. I have more ambition then wa realised or tested.
