Arrive Sunday night get put in a 6 person mess in Sir Galahad block. Start 8:15 Monday morning with a series of lectures with different RFA staff/officers for the whole week. Get your uniform that week as well.
Normally finish about 16:45 each day and the weekends are yours from about midday.
After the first week, weeks 2-4 are functional skills. Which is a week each of English, maths and ICT.
It's a government apprenticeship requirement
After week 4 you go off and learn how to cling film food and prepare cheesy hammy eggies, for a few months then join your ship.
My start date was the 1st of the month, which was a Monday.
I travelled on the Sunday as required which was the last day of April.
About a week into the course I had notification that I'd been paid £30 for Sunday even though my contract officially started the day after.
So in a long winded way the answer is yes!
