Well when i left school 4 years ago, I was job searching when i left school and there was a shop, nothing big but a little pokey shop that sold everything you could think off. They wanted a sales assistant so i went round to enquire about the job. I then got a phone call and went round to see the manager. He then told me to do to Rathbone to get on a retail course. So I did as he said as he made it clear that I have got the job as long as I got on the course at this time i didnt know he was just doing it for the money he will get for having me he made it seem like it was for my interest for getting the NVQ 2. Anyways when i went to see the advisor i got a new woman who was new to doing the youth training scemes as she was from the adut side. The thing is as it was only a small shop im not sure weather i have learnt all i needed to know as in the retail world no shop will run the there shop how the manager of that shop did. Anyway I passes the NVQ 2 in retail.
Update: I worked hard to get things done especially the written work, but the thing is half the time i could right anything down and they would sign it and then i would have another unit done. But the thing is i got a job in a shop and i didnt have a clue what i was doing which i should because I have an NVQ 2 in retail,... show more I worked hard to get things done especially the written work, but the thing is half the time i could right anything down and they would sign it and then i would have another unit done. But the thing is i got a job in a shop and i didnt have a clue what i was doing which i should because I have an NVQ 2 in retail, but I obviously didnt get the experiance i needed and I just wrote my way through it, it was easy but took a year to complete and i dont think it was done properly. I am now 20 years old without a job but the thing is I dont think I have the strenght to go through another course to try and get a job. For one thing I dont trust the advisor and another I dont want to go through all the hard work and written work for nothing. I have an NVQ now and i still cant get a job.
So i dont know what to do, I was interested in Administration, and there is a company that is suppose to be good at training people but I dont know what to do as Im still angry for what the other employer did
Update 2: to me as i worked my backside off for him and still never got the job. Sorry this is so long, but i do need to get a job quick or find some way of making some money but I dont know what to do. I cant go to the collage by me as i am to old, but the other company i told you about does ages up to 24 .

Update 3: Also i forgot to mention during my break from working i went to do childcare and that never worked out as i would of been on a low wage for 3 years to become qualified and i wasnt guaranteed to get a job in the nursey i worked at anyway and i was working more than 40 hours a week.

Also a girl had worked there for 2 years and done her NVQ 2 childcare and she was just about finished when another lass came for six months and finished before her and she got the job and the room and the girl who had been there for 2 years or more had to leave and now she works in a super market. Which is another reason why it puts be off as for 2 years of her life with hardly any money for her to be wasted when she could of got a jib ages ago. I know if you like the career you chose then it worth doing but its only the company who benefits from it as we are left out of a job.
