If - after being offered a position - you are found to have deliberately omitted or inaccurately listed qualifications that make you ineligible for the apprenticeship (e.g. previous training in the same modules) you will be in breach of your contract with Creative Pioneers London and we reserve the right to either readvertise the role or offer to an alternative candidate. If you hold a degree level qualification in most cases this will make you ineligible for apprenticeship funding and your application may not be successful.
