I'll start off by giving a bit of context, we are a small company in the UK and we consist of 2 directors, one whom project manages and one who deals with finance and networking. We also have a BDM and then there is me and the lead developer.
Now with the problem, due to the size of the company, I have found that at the start I had quite a bit of back end work with a little front end working on existing projects. Now that they trust me more they have been giving me my own projects just to get more money in the bank, the problem with this is they so far have been either 100% front end or the majority front end and a small amount of back end work. I didnt really do this course for front end work as that is not where I would like my career to go. The lead developer does very little front end work. My impression is that due to the director who deals with new projects being fairly non - techy, she may not realise the issue.
I am unsure on how to accurately convey my feelings without stepping out of my place as just an apprentice. They also may not like the fact that this could cost them money from projects and from my impression, things are fairly tight.
