    Congratulations, is it for the advanced? If so did you choose tool making or maintenance?

    I know its kinda wrong to ask this. But do you know anything about the days off? its just that my family have booked a big holiday during my birthday and am wondering if its going to be an issue as i am off for almost an entire week of college (Monday to Thursday).

    As far as I'm aware we get accumulative holiday hours so as long as you give them enough notice, and you're working up to the standard they want I don't see a problem, might have to sort something about catching up on work though

    Ah good. 36-45 hours is probably gonna be a large chunk but i'm not too bothered. As long as the college and Jaguar are happy i'm good.

    We've got a 37.5 hour working week, holidays should be based on day not hour and JLR are apparently quite generous with holidays, I'm sure that once the course is settled in you could sort it with the college tutors and work, only other thing I could suggest is email your contact on the written offer thing you had to sign and let them know?
