    So just under 6 months ago, I got an Apprenticeship in Web Development. I started, and it was alright, but it's got to the point where I'm not enjoying it. I feel out of my depth, and I think I was hired on the basis that I knew a programming language that I don't actually know, and I'm not getting trained on it. My issue is that I am unable to complete any work I am set. I still have another six months to go, along with a two-week training period and a bunch of coursework. I'm meeting with my assessor in about an hour, so I'll discuss it with her then. Could anyone give me some advice on this?

    So did you declare that you knew a particular language or was it assumed in the application?

    Either way, you need to come clean, as they're going to find out.

    That, or teach yourself pretty sharpish.

    Could you ask you assessor for some extra training? Would more help in programming make your time their more enjoyable and a little easier?
