"Training was always available online. I had two days of soft skill training at the start. Most skills were learned on the job as hands-on work."
Intern, Oxford
"After the inductions, I was still a bit clueless as to what I would actually be doing on the placements. However, I was trained well on my first days."
Intern, London
"The mandatory training was a bit dull but very helpful. This was especially true when working in-branch as there were issues that needed to be addressed on a day-to-day basis."
Intern, London
"It could be difficult to get training as staff were busy and didn't have much free time to spend with interns. However, I did learn how to do quite a few of the tasks for commercial banking. I learned how to be more formal, to manage my own diary and workload, and to structure and present projects back."
Intern, Edinburgh
"I think the training could have focused less on the values (we already had to know about them to get the job) and more on technical knowledge and systems."
Intern, London
"There was an induction and multiple e-learning modules. I gained quite a lot of product-specific and general knowledge about putting together a communications report."
Intern, London
"The mandatory learning was useful to an extent but I felt that I learned the most from the actual projects I was working on."
Intern, London
