“My apprenticeship is providing me with lots of useful and relevant training that I can apply every day. It gives me a lot to think about, and now I am more likely to investigate deeper meanings behind the attitudes, moods and behaviours that team members exhibit and can use this when I am dealing with management issues, coaching, conversations etc”
