Cliff tells us how he is getting on with his Train4TradeSkills plumbing course

Cliff Raw is one of the Train4TradeSkills network of student bloggers and tells us how he is finding his plumbing course. In his last blog, Cliff was talking about how the Ecobuild conference helped his training.

Here’s Cliff’s latest blog:

Well its been a hard week, I was made redundant last Monday third time in twelve months so have had to join the ranks the unemployed.

On the bright side it gives me loads more time to study and practise my skills, but not knowing where and when your next wage is coming from is very disconcerting. I’m not going get involved with unemployment figures or the pros and cons of signing on, so all I’m going to add is the fact that i have been very busy phoning around all the local plumbing firms trying to get a start in my chosen field, no joy yet but watch this space.

Back to the subject of my plumbing course I’m due to go to the Wakefield training centre for my first two weeks in-house training and assessment, so rather than getting too far in front with the modules I have been revising module 1-12 just to make sure it’s all locked into the little gray cells, especially the water regulations as there is a huge amount of information to digest.

I am really looking forward to getting in and doing the City & Guilds 6129 assessments as I think I will feel more confident in myself having done so. And also meeting other students and staff face to face will I’m sure, be a great experience.

Thanks for reading, I will be back soon with another update.
