A lot of those companies are robbing bastards to be blunt. Ive been in touch with several and like you as soon as they ask the question of education it goes up to 2000 quid or something stupid.
i know, what message are they trying to put across? if you've got too much education plasterings wasted on you? if you have the minimal education go in for plastering? plain offensive!

Exactly!!
its very frustrating! not only have I been told I shouldn't bother because I'm a girl (which I can get over) I'm apparently over qualified for a trade like plastering..

I am getting put off as I cant afford the courses and cant find any other route into it. I have tried to get 19+ funding but I started a degree so again don't qualify

fair enough, good attitude! i struggled in the beginning and would have swam the channel for a job on the other side. my advice would be save your money for a car for when you pass as work will be a nightmare without your own transport. maybe we can help with experience in the meantime.... we shall see! :)
