Yes, loads, various NVQ and BTEC qualifications coming out of out ears. Also a large range of a lot more specific skills developed to help us work better in the company such as a high standard of soldering. They develop you as a person throughout your 3 year course.

I haven't had any issues with it yet, although I live at home and moving out would probably be too expensive at the moment.

There are loads of them as long as you are willing to put in the work.

You don't need to worry about the knowledge you have. Any knowledge you would need for the job is taught to you, you must just have a drive for learning and a passion to succeed. (Yes I know how cheesy and horrible that sounded)
