    Hi people, After a two year college course I managed to achieve a level 2 Diploma in Plumbing. However it is not enough to get a job as i still need an NVQ (Professional level). What would be the next best step?

    Lvl 3 is the gas side of plumbing its not mandatory. But yes i know it would look better on my Cv.

    You can't complete level two without a year and a day working with someone and completing a work based portfolio.
    Have you tried getting a job in the industry?

    Would doing some work experience on site be a good idea?

    I actually done the first few months of the level 3 course. I learnt alot about cylinders , fitted loads. Then I fell out(bad idea) and got a retail job.
