Hi all.
I'm Rob from Glasgow, and I'm due to complete my city & guilds
level 2 in plastering in June 2016, its a year long course and would like to gain an adult apprenticeship to build on skills gained in college, and was wondering if anyone knows of companies in Glasgow that take on adult apprentice's

Cheers

I don't know if it's my age, or the way my mind works, but whenever I see the phrase "adult apprentice" I imagine someone learning the ropes in porn films. :musculoso:

Nah, that was when City & Guilds did the qualifications. Now that it's a NVQ they wanted a more recognisable training description.

Makes me feel old cos mine was city&guilds nvq are freely handed out these days I'm glad I have got mine but I'm glad I learnt the hard way as well the pleasure I took from the spreads shouting at me throwing stuff at me calling me useless and sticking me in cupboards stood me good in end even if today's generation would call it bullying I had no choice me old man wanted his rent and I wanted beer

I had one telling me he tough goes gym and he can kill it he couldn't get a full shovel of sand in mixer and I filled barrow up for him to bring round and he couldn't lift it I went think you better put more time in the gym cos you clearly ain't as strong as you make out it does amuse me watching them try carry a bag of plaster it's more the knack of getting on shoulder and they can't get it so I used to carry two at a time to show its easy but really I was thinking this is graft

That is the problem.... if they have a good company to work for then the training is a lot better.... college is a great idea but simply is not working as well as everyone hopes

They push apprenticeships and so they should but I learnt more on site than I ever did at college thing is though once they do finally get there nvq they then think they are a plasterer which we know isn't the case then they do the trade only to find out a lot of firms only want "multi trades" and wanna pay 12-14 an hour it's not on really that people can decide a trade as ours is worth only that much imo
