Writtle college pass rate.

Recommended Posts

Hi arb peeps.  Would anyone please advise me if Writtle college are any good? I'm looking at doing a few courses to get me further into the industry, however I'm not hearing great things from local arborist's.  For example people not being passed because they are only doing a couple of days against the students that are doing longer courses, assessor's that are instructors at other colleges with higher pass rates etc  I don't fancy shelling out over a grand just to make up numbers and then not pass. Also, will I get treated well being a lass?.  I know some instructors and examiners can be a little sexsist and I've been advised that writtle can be like that. Ive always worked with men and love the banter.

 

Any honest advice would be great.  Ive done a ton of self study on trees, species, pests and diseases. 

 

Managed to get some part time work with a local arborist who has been training me in the ways of a good groundy, I've been learning rigging and knots, all the chainsaw ground work, and being petrol minded fixing saws and equipment on the fly seems to be my thing!. 

 

All want to do is climb trees do quality tree work (not just chog it all down standing on spikes)and run my little wood yard.

 

This girl loves a bit of wood :D. Thank you all in advance.

Assuming that the instructors are the same as when I attended about 8 years ago, you need have no worries on that count. They were top-notch and won't put up with any old bolo from students spoiling the course for anyone. :thumbup1:
