Reality Check

The company would prefer someone with a full/clean driving licence Please note – You must not have done a Level 3 Engineering course full-time at a college or training provider – apprenticeship rules mean that we cannot take an ex full-time learner on to an apprenticeship because you will have done at least 50%+ of the learning at college already and we cannot gain funding from the Governments Skills Funding Agency if this is the case..
