Vocational Training

Get the Surgical Tech Success Handbook and get in the high-paying medical industry!

So where has all the money gone to provide true vocational training ? How do those who need vocational training get it when out of work even though it will enhance their chances of getting employment ?

I was unemployed at 52 and got a 50% reduction on a FAETC (Further & Adult Education Teaching Certificate) course. After 18 months (2 hours a week for 52 sessions plus course work, monitored teaching sessions and all the rest) I had passed Stages 1 & 2 with flying colours. At the passing out ceremony the Vice Principal of the college I attended came in and told us he was sacking (retiring and not hiring) any tutors over 40.

The certificate did allow me to hawk my considerable business and other experience around and I got some (very) part-time lecturing work. It's main value was the improvement in my confidence and self-esteem. I still do some lecturing for community education courses on antiques.
