I started out as an apprentice and over the course of 5 months I was taken off the apprenticeship and told I was going to go on a course which hasn't followed through ( my pay has gone up slightly). Everything I I have done, I have taught myself. I haven't received much training and I have been battered down a fair few times, being referred to as a 'robot' 'unconfident' and a few other things. I'm just curious as to whether it's also allowed to email and text passed working hours, it has happened on a few occasions. I just want an opinion on apprenticeships really? & what people's views are on them?
