British plumbers opt for stay at home studies

In the light of Britainís continued shortage of qualified trades people, home study specialists Train4Trade Skills has announced that thousands are signing up to study at home, using their unique blended learning plumbing courses.

[UKPRwire, Mon Mar 03 2008] In the light of Britainís major shortage of plumbers and qualified trades people, Train4TradeSkillsí revolutionary home-learning plumbing courses have attracted thousands of would-be plumbers, including a large number of ladies, since it was launched less than 12 months ago.

The Train4TradeSkills courses are designed to enable plumbers to qualify in their own time, at their own pace, while studying from home and often working around existing job commitments, to achieve industry recognised qualifications. They are totally unique because they combine textbook theory the opportunity to try out newly learnt skills on a PC based virtual house, reinforcing the textbook studies and ensuring students practice in a safe environment, and not at customersí expense.

Once students have passed their initial modules, hands-on practical training is offered in fully equipped workshops in Leeds, Guildford and Southampton.

Train4TradeSkillsí marketing director Mike Head said ďOver a third of school leavers opt not to continue with formal education at a college or university. Courses such as ours provide students with the chance to study skills in their own time, at home, and at their own pace, as well as accommodating older plumbing students who may well want to study around existing job commitments. We currently have an ex-naval officer, a former paramedic and a number of housewives studying with usĒ.
