    sorry to say youve got no chance of a job

    your best bet is to go as a plumbers mate for a couple of years and then move onto the gas side

    To become a doctor you don’t go to operation theatre Straight away you finish your education first then you work with somebody for experience,

    The powers that be need to get a grip on this. I don't really understand NVQs etc - I am from the days of Gity an Guild. I do understand that course providers are misleading folk, and selling expensive courses to the slightly desperate. It is not fair to call these punters gullible - who would think that the govt. would allow "colleges" to encourage guys to give up good, but possibly uninspiring, jobs, take out loans, work for free - all to (typically) end up, at best, swapping out meters.

    At the very least, it should be the providers responsibility to provide mentors - and pay us. When I had a shop, it was a weekly routine to decline the offer of "free" labour in return for assistance to build a portfolio. I tried hard to be positive with them, while refusing their offers

    Good luck not really sure why you saw fit to dislike my post unfortunately it’s true. You could’ve done with a proper college type introduction to plumbing before moving onto gas. People trying to run before they can walk
