To get physically fit for the entrance tests and also for the demanding physical nature of the job. Also I would tell people to enjoy themselves before they join as it’s a job for at least 30 years.

I would also informl people about the variety of avenues people can get into when they have completed their training. There really is a career for every person regardless of where their interests lie. There is so many specialised units and prospects.

Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

Being accepted on this proposed Apprenticeship will require a job seeker to first secure an “Apprenticeship Contract” with an approved organisation / employer.

As details of approved organisations become available, they will be included here.

Each approved organisation will determine the particular salary structure for the apprenticeship, which will be communicated at contract negotiation stage with the proposed candidate. 

There will be no difference in rate-of-pay between the time an apprentice spends on-the-job and time in training.
