Go-Transform (expected qualifications in 12 months)
Other awards and qualifications are included in the scheme and gaining these will depend on your experience and personal interests.
Go-Transform applicants must be 18 years or over, however if you’re 16 years or over you can still come to explore if it’s right for you in the future. You don’t have to come by yourself either – bring your parents, siblings or a friend to share the experience with you.*
If you would like to explore if Go-Transform is for you, then why not arrange to come for a day visit? This is a great opportunity to meet the team and see where you could be training and working.*
