well dont get told much either ie holidays and things like that. we dont even get told of class changes. college is mon- fri 9 am to 4.45pm. but we can get away early if we finish class. app test is easy its just basic questions and not that difficult. theres already a guy from newcastle in my class. there is one ecitb mechnical class so yes you and your mate will be together. you will be waiting a while think i was about a month or so. the course dosent start untill agust/october. i think i found out i had the job june/july.
Im new to this site and thinking of doing the OPITO Apprenticeship.
However, I cant find any clear information on what benefits (money) I would recieve.
Do we get the standard apprentice allowance £90 a week? I read we get meals and accomodation paid for is this true?
Sorry for all the questions I'm just trying to work out if I is finicially viable for me
one thing that bothers me, how true is it that one cant apply for a grant if one is with ecitb? also they really are taking they time, i live down south and applied in january and still waiting for the aptitude test, I hope i get in
still excited for this like lads! can't help but find the whole package exciting. the sooner i find out if i am in, the better though. think i know a lot of info now from this forum. 5 hours (according to google maps) between aberdeen and newcastle, and OPITO stated on their site that the instrument tech course is aberdeen. Going to be quite some drive :P
