    once again a post that highlights the difference in training being dished out across britain. Im pretty sure most part 2's in scotland couldnt answer the first 6 questions.

    and as a recent part 2 attendee , i can categorically state the answer to the first 6 questions is not found anywhere in the part 2 course

    it seems in scotland we get cards for making up portfoilio's and getting them signed by anybody whereas in england people are actually being trained to a high level

    im struggling to understand why these questions would be relevant for a part 2 , maybe someone in england can enlighten me on how the training works and the paperwork required for an NVQ in england , in scotland we give out SVQ'S for free.

    Q6: give it to someone who gives a ****

    If you are erecting these type of structure you should be able to describe how each of the part function to deem competence.
