his/her willingness to take the candidate on the project. This letter
should also specify what and how training will be provided, digger/student
ratio.It should also confirm that the candidate, if accepted on the
project, would be fully insured. Finally a copy of the project risk
assessment/health and safety guidlines should accompany the letter
from the director.

be possible to award grants to cover more than one week at a time.
