  1. HI, Hope someone can help out with this problem. My sister is claiming JSA and has been told she must attend a skills conditionality course, mon-fri 10 til 4, lasting 18 weeks. She has been told this course is mandatory because she is long term unemployed. She has been to the first interview with a group of other claimants and was told to fill in all the forms etc, and given a run through of what training she will be given, but the problem is she is blind in one eye and only has awareness of light and contrast in the other, she is unable to read or write legibly one of the a
  2. Hello CAG Ive had a good read through on the forums & it seems i may be able to get some valuable advice here. I enrolled on a self study electrician course 2 years ago and i am still paying monthly for what seems like is not all its cracked up to be. i have 4 years (total) to learn all the modules is a large book i was given & then apparently i will be a qualified electrician but i fail to see where the actual learning is as there is no practical learning and it seems that all this book contains is regulations on 17th edition domestic installation. I was hard sol

  4. hi all, I am new in this site and hope i am in the right place. I wanted help with a refund from skills train. I enrolled on 2008 with skills train but didnt complete the course because i hardly got any reply from the tutor and it just didnt work for me.

I recently found that i could get refund from Skills Train after reading some posts so i am asking if someone can guide me on this please. I have still got all the course mater

  7. Hi, I am desperately hoping that someone out there can help me. My husband joined a plumbing course with train 4 trade skills in 2009 but since he could not get credit for the course I signed up for a £6000 loan with CDF to pay for it. We got divorced not long after this and I am still paying £135 a month to the loan company for this course even though I know my ex husband never even opened the course material or even sent in his initial registration card. I have none of the paperwork as he took it when he moved out. I have written to train 4 trade skills who say they can not discuss anything
  8. I was just wondering if some of you had any advice on surviving the long and stressful ET process. As per my other post, I have raised an ET against my employer. I have spoken to a number of organisations (Equality helpdesk / acas helpdesk) and legal people and have not met one that has said 'mmm, not sure you have a case there'. My doctors and psychiatrist are backing me 100%. Fortunately, most of the evidence I have is in writing and in my possession. My questions: 1) I am off work sick and no longer receive any pay from my company. If the ET takes nearly 2 years to get to cour
  9. I recently got feedback from a interview that said "I wasn't sure you were so confident with Excel". I have been to college and gained good marks in units using Excel, and I'm pretty sure I completed all the tasks he asked me to using Excel. It makes me wonder what is the point of going to college to gain certificates if a Interviewer can just say you are no good based on a 2 minute test?
