Hi, I just completed my level 2 QCF (NVQ) Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools apprenticeship. My current job is temporary and finishes next week - I don't have another for September. I feel to stand a chance of getting an interview I need a level 3 qualification - I've been told by the training provider I cannot do the level 3 apprenticeship as I'm not in paid employment. The local college does not offer a stand alone NVQ - they only provide the technical/knowledge based certificate. (The course if full for this Sept). Any suggestions how I can get qualified to get a job? Are the online courses recognised? I don't want to waste time & money if they are nothing more than a piece of paper to employers.
