Yea they dropped the start off wage by £3000 and put everyone as an apprentice,then they can claim back a government bursary,its the way most companies are going.Everyone 2 weeks in yarnfield as of 2017 then put wherever,ive got to go back to yarnfield for another 2 weeks after that as only place that does the FVR training,then its 1week at yarnfield/ 1 week buddying for a further 8 weeks then live on week 12.Im not sure if harogate is used now as on our list there was only peterborough,cardiff,croydon,southampton,bolton,and bradford.

Yeah Harrogate has now been demolished,Bradford is now the other school. You will probably be doing block and tail work to start up poles,cab work. It's a good job you'll enjoy it.

CAL/OMI which is up the poles and customers houses
FVR which is fault repair and supposedly changing over cabs to the new technology
You will be one of these 2 as the other one Fibre Jointing is told to the people who are doing it before they start yarnfield as its 17 weeks instead of 12 and you dont get a van after first week as they have bigger ones that need a towing licence so they need to do more driving skills.
