just thought i would share something that i was told today, they are now only taking nqq2 or higher on sitework "i new that was going to happen"_ but i want to get a spread on to work with me he has a normal operative card, i was told that i could get him onsite with the card "but" the moment he started putting plaster on the walls he would be breaking the law, so any spread not got nvq2 or higher will no longer be able to ply his trade onsite, also i asked a question that baffles me how can an improver go out onsite and learn his trade, if he has no nvq2 card because all hes got is an operative card and is not qualified yet? the answer is he has to go on an nvq course so it looks like no more learning onsite , i still cant get my head round that one, also i see there is an nvq2 for machine plastering now, so you have machine plastering , plastering, tape and joint ect ect all with there own nv2 specific cards so if u wanted to go out onsite and do a bit of tape and jointing , or machine plastering you cant unless you have that trade speciic card, there breaking the trade down into segments by the look of it

This doesnt surprise me
My card says 'painter& decorator' so looks like I've got to shell out for some deadbeat to issue me a different card so I can earn a living?
No wonder I take a drink.....:mad:
