I fully agree with nearly all post's in this thread! So glad the OP posted it,worded it very well.
Iv been unemployed for a year now and have been on nearly every mind numbing course they offer...
A4E - builds your cv and helps you find work ...reality= on day 2 shows you layout for a good cv and tells you to copy it, rest of the the times your
on there you are doing what you would be doing more productively, without distractions, at home. These people at A4E are been paid a fair bit for
'helping' you do something yo would do better at home.
S.I.A course(Security) £400 gets given to the private company for been let on the course and they get £100 a day for a single pupil. The course is
3week. This course is actually the best out of them all, but the problem is there giving people SIA licenses when there isnt even enough security work
out there, plus the S.I.A license is going to be scrapped and a new 1 brought in within 2years - so its all pointless. Plus the teachers there are not
that helpful. I was telling the people that i had a criminal record and they were assuring me that I was o.k to continue the course, that it wouldnt
effect anything - so i believed them, finished the course - passed it etc, then when i sent out "250 in a cheque to the S.I.A badge issuers to get
my security badge, they sent me a letter and told me that unfortunately i cant have it due to me having a criminal record and i must apply again
3years and that they will be keeping my £250, I soon sorted that out due to it been in cheque but if i wouldnt of been so fast, they would have had
Forklift license..I was there for 2 week and got my counterbalance license, something the emplyers dont even look for, they need you to have the other
one - the one the government dont pay you to get soi the whole course is pointless unless you get very very lucky and find an employer who will train
you from the counter balance. .
Iv been in and out of Agency work which will employ me for 2 to 5days then fire me, not to give me any work for week - which fuks up my benefits and i
end up having to live onabout £30 a week, someimes nothing until my rapid recalim start which is, in most cases upto 2week. . .
I havent worked full tiem now for a pretty long time, i refuse to accept agency work which will only give me little employment-while recieivng massive
sums of money..
I live back at my mum house, even though i have a child of 1 years old and a partner - I can not live at my partners house because he government will
stop all child benefits for my partner. She currently is workin part time at a job shes had for years, she gets around £480 a month from her job, and
the benefits she recives brings her monthly wage upto around £1000 a month. I can not live with my girlfriend and be around my child because if i do,
they will stop all benefits for us both because she is expected to upkeep us both, on £480 a month, plus pay for her house/car etc.
The government is not helping us, one bit. people wonder why kids are been locked up left right and centre, they cant see there parents surviving on
nothing so they go out and create money their selves - people are puished into crime because of a system that will not help them do anything.
The government are willing to spend all this money on usless training, but wont create any jobs. this is disgusting and we need to take action, they
want us unemployed, all of us.
