HELLO

i have applied for various apprenticeship programs for many months and i have come to the last stages of 2 apprenticeship company. TFL apprenticeship in computers/IT consisted of doing 2 online test, if you pass you then do a video interview and if they like your video interview then they shortlist you and process you onto the last stage of going to the assessment center and doing more test, interviews etc it has been a long ride with tfl and very hard questions but i have successfully passed and onto the last stage of going to the assessment center.

its the same for santander digital apprenticeship online test, cv check, phone interview and assessment enter.

Why does TFL saying pursue a career you love and Santander doesnt?
Do you want a degree or not? That will save you £30k.
You seem to want TFL.

TBF I would wait till I had one both test centres and got the job offers because its a choice you do not have to make yet. You are assuming you get offered both and imo the most difficult stage will be the assessment centre. Yu might get offered both, one or neither.

When will TSR ever decide to auto lock threads when nothing has been posted for a month, let alone a year?

Guess we will never find out.
