Hello and welcome to my blog as this is my first post.
I better start by introducing myself. my name is Clifford, though all my friends call me Cliff. I am 43 years young and am a male joiner who has been re-training as a plumber with Train4TradeSkills since October 2010.
I am currently on section 2 module 16 and have completed scenarios 1 to 6 as well as the first 4 online training ie; Introduction, Health & Safety, Soft Soldering and Copper Tube Bending.
It has been a very challenging to return to education but also very rewarding, and though I struggled at first I am now getting used to the workload.
Unfortunately I was made redundant in December which was a great worry as the job market is very depressing and the prospects of finding another job were slim. I contacted the team at T4TS who were very helpful, they sent me a redundancy claim pack and I was about to claim, but I found part-time employment so I never posted the claim form back.
This has been both a blessing and a curse as the extra time to spend studying is great but the obvious drop in income has put extra stress on the family.
Well that’s all for now. Cliff
