Ross, I tend to agree with Nor: but it’s not only a problem with the racing game. It seems many employers in this country have yet to embrace the value of training for lower paid and lower skilled employees.

NVQ assessment is extremely reliant on employer commitment and more importantly, the self-discipline of the trainee. The hours stable staff work is a barrier in itself; an average working day is long and arduous and many don’t really want to finish their days sorting out their evidence folder in the evening.

But for graduates, as Ross says, the Industry does reasonably well, (though as a huge employer, there could be more opportunities still – and from a wider range of socio-economic groups).
