  8. Hi John It is a sad state of affairs with some of the colleges at the moment as funding, particularly with apprentices, is erratic and inconsistent. We have had the same feedback from local employers regarding the treatment and quality of the teaching with some apprentices not even knowing what or where they are supposed to be learning. We are a small training centre on the Bucks/Northamptonshire border and we have just started our own apprenticeship scheme. It is in its infancy but we are all ex college lecturers and instructors originating from the arb industry and all have been disillusioned with the mainstream college delivery of arboriculture. Good industrial practice and knowledge is something we feel very strongly about and all our apprentices are treated as individuals with different learning plans and great communication with the employers. As I said before this is in its infancy but we will develop this as putting out well trained and educated tree surgeons is more important than passing someone just to keep the figures high. We are Brampton Valley Training by the way.

  22. This quote made me chuckle:thumbup:! There are a lot of very valid points in this thread! The NPTC qualification is a Certificate of Competence, what is most important is the experience which you gain by working with the right and sometime the wrong people which was mentioned earlier! Good experience is very important... Stay safe!
