    Segregation of the industry

    I've been to college Imago and in my experience their s**t, they've cottoned on to the fact the can teach very little on the pracitcal side, so they save money on materials all the while claiming £3500 per student in funding, therefore they produce people that can only do so much. I would give...

    @cassie have you seen the cases hand tools express made especially for the refina spats? They had some wood one's and now have aluminium. Bit pricy mate but defo worth a punt considering price of the spats.

    NVQs Are Required for your CSCS Card Application/Renewal.

    Nvq level 3

    I totally agree I've just finished my level 2, and we never learnt drylining or any render finishes apart from rubbing up plain face, never did any fibrous work i.e making reverse running mould, and the tutor told most of the students the answers during the exam so that they'd pass!!

    Civil engineering contractors are calling for immediate action on training

    Because it's classed as specialist work, there isn't alot of call for fibrous on new build houses, they just throw up some gyproc coving if needs be.

    Civil engineering contractors are calling for immediate action on training

    only funding for 17 to 19 year olds ryan or maybe up to 24 but over your on your own, otherwise your employer has to pay half course fees, and no employer gonna take anyone if they have to pay.

    top or bottom thats the question

    Top right to left when floating, and top left to right when setting, reason for this is your leaving finshed work behind you as opposed to dropping plaster on finished work. Suppose it all comes down to preference and how you were taught, different strokes for different folks lol :RpS_thumbsup:
