    We expect minimum total of 3 hour per week for full time trainee. During the pre-training review, the trainers’ visit hours are decided and are reflected in the training plan.
    The visit hours are decided upon by mutual agreement between the employer, trainer and the student. To ensure effectiveness of training sessions and encourage student participation, group sizes will be limited to a maximum of 6 participants in the workplace.
    Each session will allow enough time for the students to learn the topic, undertake practice opportunities and, where required by learner or employer needs, complete / submit set tasks required for assessment purposes.
