Things to consider

It would be preferable for the apprentice to have transport to employer's address/ site. Apprentice will be required to purchase tools as they progress. However, this can be subsidised from wages. The apprenticeship will be physically demanding at times, which I feel should be taken into consideration by possible applicants.
