of their apprentices on a quarterly basis, when their salaries
can also be reassessed, based on the benefits the apprentice

to help them develop.
Apprentices will also receive on-site visits
from our assessors at least once a month and after 12 months,
they will have achieved a Level 3 NVQ qualification.
