Hiya, I start on the 8th of jan in south east London. I am pretty excited for this new career change! Could you give a break day on a typical day while training, like the breaks, the hours you do, the staff it would be nice to have an insight so I can mentally prepare. Thank you in advance!

1 st week was the induction week but it was doing the training on your laptop (usually with a group ) in a class room. 20 minutes break , then a hour lunch , followed by a other 20 minutes in the afternoon. Hours typically 930 to 430 . Mixture of people usually a couple of young ones like myself in mid twenties and few older ones in 50s and few people 30-40 etc. I would say it very much depends on the jobcentre you get too. I'm enjoying the 2nd week more than I did the first .
