But did you have any experience in the trade you went in for?
The thing is, I don't. I have a couple of other things as well that may make them doubt my commitment to joining. These include two withdrawn applications to the Royal Navy, a few gaps in employment and me pulling out of a university course. I've worked most of my life, and got some decent GCSEs and other (although non-relevant) qualifications but I can't help but think there's much going against me, to be honest.
Not really, going for ENG apprenticeship and my only relevant experience was a college course in welding and 2 years as a labourer in the steel works. But that was a while ago, it obviously helps but the job was advertised as un qualified and no qualifications needed.
