Thanks for the info. mate! If you want to read something inspiring look up "Burston School Strike" on Wikipedia. If you have trouble understanding what it was all about just send me some questions. I'll do my best to answer them. Please pass on my best wishes to your Husband. Hope you are well and working?

Dear Teresa, Thanks for the info. It certainly sounds different there regarding Apprenticeships. Over here most apprentices are indentured to one specific employer as in the old days! Group apprenticeships are available, but are generally run by a training organisation. Four years is the most common period for the term of the apprenticeship, but that can be reduced if the apprentice has prior experience in the industry. That is assessed by an independent assessor! Boring, eh! Regards, Rod
