How to apply

Contact us for a referral form or download here and return it to us.

Once you have submitted an application form you will be contacted by our Student Services Manager to:

  • Discuss your application.
  • Agree who will fund the placement.
  • Let you know about how our training programmes and individual learning plans work.
  • Discuss any health considerations.
  • Discuss Terms and Conditions

To help you make the best choice of project, you can come and meet us for a chat and a project visit. Or take a tour of projects that you are interested in. We can also offer a free taster session in your chosen project to help you to decide if the project is right for you. In some cases more than one taster can be offered.

Subject to funding and suitability a placement will then be offered and a start date arranged.

Trainee Induction

Students are all given an induction into their chosen project during their first or second week. This is linked to their training schedule and introduces them to project procedures and safe use of tools and machinery.
