If apprentices or BSc students are placed on a project under the NEC 3 or 4 Option C, is their time at college/uni an allowable cost under the Schedule of Cost Components?
Costs in the SoCC have to be incurred in order to provide the works / service, which this isn’t. More generally training costs for people are not included in SoCC unless its safety training, and I doubt you could make that argument. I understand that SoCC heading to be for things like inductions and site standdowns, and for training needed for the works / service. An example could be confined space training.
