    Do you know the tradesman (plumber) you will be working along side during the time you are in training ?

    What sort of work do they do ? is it install or maintenance, domestic or commercial, plumbing & heating ?

    These are the people & this is were you will learn the most from not the training course.

    Can I jump in here without starting another thread?

    If I was going to tech for a few days per week; would I be working alongside someone (if I could find a tradesman to take me on) whilst I'm at tech, or would I be better getting my NVQ's and then finding an apprentiship.

    Thanks,
    James.

    100% apprenticeship then you get the college practical and theoretical stuff aswell as your onsite assessments all at once. Not doing an apprenticeship you will do the college practical and theoretical stuff but no assessment making it incomplete. I've known lads have to redo their level 2 from scratch when they found an apprenticeship after already doing a year in college.

    I'll be interested here too. My course advisor said I'd be around 15-18 months doing lv2 and 3 years to be level 3 qualified.

    Yeah,its not an apprenticeship. You do theory based learning and do some on the computer on a single.ulated learning program. Then you go in to college centre to practise the theory on practical and get assessed doing so. Then after so many modules and practicals they send you to a working building site to work with qualified people doing the job for real to gain more experience and use it as evidence for your portfolio.

    So what do you want to know? Is this a good route ? cos it is not the route that most have done on here.

    Many thing is how much time will you spend on a building site ?
