Are there any fee costs to be covered by me?
Farra Engineering will pay for the cost of any study or block courses and will require you to remain in the employment of Farra for 12 months after the completion of your apprenticeship.
If you complete 12 months at Farra after your apprenticeship you will not need to pay anything towards the cost of your study or block courses. However, if you choose to leave before the 12 month timeframe, Farra may require a proportion of the fees paid towards the final year of your apprenticeship to be reimbursed.
What if I want to change the focus of my Apprenticeship?
As a full service engineering company we aim to allow apprentices to experience multiple functions within their apprenticeship. You can expect to be involved in fitting, machining, welding, maintenance and/or fabrication and depending on where your passion lies we will try to accommodate this in your training.
I'm thinking about studying at University, is getting a trade really an option?
Getting a trade provides you with practical life long skills that are in high demand. If you get a trade, not only will your study costs be covered by Farra but you will be paid for your on the job training.
In addition, at the end of your apprenticeship you will have a career, instead of being stuck searching for a job.
