Im getting on for 10 months in now. No accreditation at 6 months for us but lots during the first 12 weeks.
Things like frames training where of course they say youll hardly ever need it. To which i say if hardly ever need it means probably at least once a week then sure.
Ive finished my nvq more or less just awaiting the nvq to sign it off really but of course he wont be doing that till my 12 months are up.
