    Been made redundant 21st Sep 19 at 1:20 PM
    Hi all

    Couple of weeks back I was made redundant from my job; last shift was 6th September. I was directly employed by the company and I have received everything I was entitled to.
    Iím interested to find out what Iím entitled to as would quite like to do some further training in my field. Iím currently (or most recently) was employed as a plant operator and would like to get into a more construction management based role and this is something Iíd thought about doing in time anyway. Since losing my job Iíve struggled to find consistent work, itís been a few days here and there self-employed through agencies 🙄

    I will say what my sibling (time served carpenter) has told me, but this is to give you a starting point!

    CSCS card in your chosen field/line
    NVQ in your chosen field / line, some you can do onsite where you have someone from a company come out and see your work; think along the lines of time served, others you attend a college / specific company to do it.
    Then a management course.

    It's financially achievable for under £5k (£100ish, £1500, forget how much the management one was) from what he told me.
