Re: Chaperone Qualifications

Thanks Ladies - I need a DBS (have one) and a safegaurding course (booked through work) so I may be fairly easily sorted

Sites for looking for work - possibly more use for graduates than for children

Re: Low pay/no pay vs you have to start somewhere

I think she has done well - she has certainly stuck at it! For 8 weeks.... She won't apply for as many again as she is starting to work out which ads are worth applying for - some we have got a fair way in before realising they are unpaid or a bit of a can - she'll avoid that type if she sees simila...

Re: Low pay/no pay vs you have to start somewhere

You have to understand you don't get to know exactly what everyone does, so my impressions are put together by hearsay/fb/gossip and conjecture I seemed to me that this year more students had jobs by showcase (may) than had jobs by the end of year (july) for the last 2 years put together!!

Re: Low pay/no pay vs you have to start somewhere

Anyone else had opportubities that happened at the wrong time?
