We hope you will enjoy your apprenticeship with CoTrain. While we will do our best to ensure you are given appropriate tasks on site to compliment your chosen study course, it may be necessary from time to time to move you to an alternative site for you to gain the required practical experience and there will be times you have to do general labouring tasks.
