Thank you for considering to take part in this survey.
This survey should take you less than 10 minutes to complete.
Please answer this survey only if you are currently undertaking an apprenticeship in the UK.
Chance to win £250 in Amazon vouchers!

Please note, all responses will not be attributable to individuals, i.e. they will remain anonymous and confidential.
That means your feedback will not be shared with your employer or college.

We are aiming to gain a better understanding of what apprentices who want to work in the construction sector may feel about mental health. We hope to use this understanding to help improve awareness and support that can be provided to students during their apprenticeships.

According to CITB, over time 35% of apprentices in the industry will go on to run their own businesses.

As it is anonymous, please answer the questions as honestly as you can.
