    I have been offered an appretechip as a HCA at the local hospital following my interview last friday :woohoo:!!!!!

    Its a bit of a long process but will be worth it. I have to jump through a few hoops first (CRB, Induction, Health checks etc etc) and then go for interviews with the wards/departments to get a place but basically I get a 24mnth training programme to train me up and I get paid!!

    the down side.........they want a copy of my GCSE's to prove I have completed my Maths & English, which I did over 12 years ago. I dont have the certificate (lost it in one of my many house moves) so I think Im going to have to apply to Edexcell which is going to cost me £35 and thats only IF they can trace it!

    What a nightmare, nothing is ever smooth for me!!!

    I hope Edexcel can get hold of your certificates, they are pretty good though, so fingers crossed.

    I am delighted for you.

    Our lives too are chaotic when it comes to papers and I despair of us sometimes. !!!!

    I am sure your exam results wiil turn up. 12 years ago is no that long in the great schemem of things.

    What a fantastic shot in the arm for you.

    Thanks guys. I emailed them this morning to make sure that they needed the certifictae and explained that I would have to pay £35 for a duplicate.

    Ive had a lovely email back saying that I dont need to pay as long as I am happy to do a keyskills course woohoo- even better!! xx
