Neil – New Trades Career review

I am currently working as a material handler at a large Bakery and also completing my own Plumbing work in between.

I started this course because I wanted a different path and to broaden my horizons. I am looking to now set up my own business and complete work for myself in the hope to eventually leave my full time job and be a full time Plumber or find a full time Plumbing job.

It has been hard work but very rewarding and you feel a real sense of achievement when you complete each stage of the qualification.

My favourite parts of Level 2 were completing the Bathroom and radiator tasks and then going onsite to complete the NVQ although it was challenging. I have never done any Plumbing before or any other manual work.

ERR Featherstone were brilliant and I found that the tutors were very knowledgeable. The facilities had everything that I needed and were very organised. The tutors are very approachable and made the experience enjoyable throughout.

Overall I had a very good experience and would recommend new trades career college to anyone as long as they have a passion for Plumbing.
