5 /5

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

Very clear schedule to follow, with lots of pointers/reminders given along the way as needed. I felt comfortable asking for advice, and the work ran smoothly.
5 /5

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

The work was flexible around my studies - you could either do a little bit every day or work in chunks as needed. It was certainly a manageable workload.
5 /5

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

I was trusted to get on with tasks myself and to take the initiative where appropriate. I felt like I had a suitable amount of control given the nature of the work and the firm involved.
5 /5

6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

The skills developed are useful in that they are different to those covered by my studies, and so should help me become a better "all-rounder". The need for strong organisation, communication and presentation will likely be very valuable in work.

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

The training days at the firm's office were very useful and marked a good investment in me. The feedback provided was also a sign of such an investment.
