Product Questions

Will the city & guilds level 2 course 6035 02 allow me to work on site so I can work towards my NVQ 2? I've done a bit of research and keep finding that people are finding it hard to go get work with this coming off of the fast track courses.

If not how would I complete my NVQ 2 as you have to be working to get it assessed?

After C and G level 2 is there a way of achieving the NVQ thus letting you work on site? Or after obtaining this course do you have to work for yourself?
Does completing this course make me a qualified plumber in the UK and able to operate as a self employed plumber?
Is there funding for this course for 16 year olds?
where are the centres for level 2 plumbing - we are based in the south east
Hi do any women do the course?
Can this course be started from scratch with no previous qualifications or experience?
when do the course date's start?
do you get a qualification at the end of the course?
If taking this course, weekends only, how many weekends would that be? Would it be Sat and Sun and what would be the hours of training. Do you offer training anywhere near Harlow?
How old do I have to be to do the training?

May I ask where the course will be based? Do you do any plumbing courses in/near Manchester?

Many thanks.
