A word of warning to everyone who has recently submitted their TRA - ours has been returned because of the withdrawal of the predominantly work experience pathway. Mark has more than 2 years training as a welder under his belt but no formal apprenticeship so this is a bitter blow to us.
The TRA application as a received stamp of 27 August on it, which is almost 2 weeks before the surprise announcement of these changes on 5 September which makes me think that TRA had been told in advance - they have even sent our cheque back.
Really hope this isn't happening to anyone else out there!!!
