I would advise anyone starting their training at UKSA to take every opportunity that’s given to you and remember there aren’t really wrong ways of doing things, just different ways, so don’t be disheartened if people disagree with you! And remember what it feels like to be new, when you’re more experienced give other new people the time you needed!
