Those that can use to have apprentices, the real teacher.
I remember college as a bunch apprentices from different companies having a laugh.
It was just the fundamentals and tasks ticked off, so you could get your c&g.
My tradesman pissed all over the college guys, his knowledge was second to none.

Currently have a NVQ level 3 in plastering
You will be able to get a job with your NVQ however then the courses start. More than likely you’ll start off with what used to be the PTLLS, I believe it’s now called DTLLS, then your assessors qualification and finally the CertEd which is a degree. Very rewarding career but very frustrating with all the hoops you have to jump through.

I currently teach and took the DET Level5 in house. You will ideally be mentored by the Plastering lecturer when you first start but it can be a baptism of fire. From our year 2 students about a third have what it takes to move into Industry. The job itself can be both rewarding and frustrating in equal turns which can change from minute to minute! Ring around your local colleges and have a chat to the lecturers who should clue you in.

Thanks for the information and the most relevant answer.

Friend of mine did it. One of the 17 year olds who was put on the course just to be in education didn’t like getting told to wind his neck in and clear his s**t up. He pulled a Stanley blade on my mate and tried to slash his face, rapidly regretted it when my friend rightly broke his nose with 1 well placed punch. Next thing my friend gets nicked and the little darling is playing “the nasty man hit me” act

Why not kick them out at the end of year one?
