Hi Ben, I currently have 3 apprentices within the company. 2 of them have filled in the college paper work and were due to begin courses in September and the other 1 is going through this process today. I have since been informed by the college that they each must attend college 1 day per week for between 6 - 18 weeks to complete additional courses I was not aware of. I am considering offering all 3 a job and no longer have them on as apprentices but and regular employees and on National min wage, can I do this?

Ben, can you confirm you are looking into this question please?
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
This has been quite possibly the worst service I have received from an online support, I will expect a full refund!
