Training should be more inclusive. I think there should be more help for people with disabilities who want to do training, and more support in colleges and IT’s for people who need extra help with their training.
I really like mechanics, drawing, and sign-language. I’d like to do proper training in one of these. I went to college and got support but it wasn’t enough and as a result I struggled. There should be more TA (training assistant) hours, more one-to-one tuition and more time for assignments. The real thing though is to have more mid-level training courses in things like mechanics, say QQI level 1-2 so that you can work your way up at your own pace. At the moment the courses in the IT or college start at Level 5 course and the jump in level is too high too quickly – I need to work my way up to that.
Does That Seem Fair To You?
