  • oficial training Last updated by Carl: 24-Jul-2017 View last comments

    After 20 years working as mental support worker I’d like to get some professional training. I lost my job a couple of months ago and I hear that with the amount of qualified people available nowadays I may find it difficult to get work again.

    • But surely your experience should be a good introductory letter, at least this is what I’d expect if it was me.

      • So do I, I hope that my experience counts and it doesn’t all come down to a piece of paper. All the same, I would like to play it safe and get some formal training.. for the sake of being able to produce it at interviews.

        • As far as I know, if you have experience you can apply for a secondment and take a part-time degree.

          • Yes, I have to investigate what options I have.

    • I’d also investigate what options there are to get state funding for course fees and also for living expenses.

      • Will do, thanks. I’d say if there’s anything I’ll be able to find it in the nhs page.
