Carpentry Trade Assessment Skype Interview Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I received an email this morning informing me that I'd passed the first part of the assessment and asked if I could be in either London, Guildford or North Glasgow at 9am next Monday.

 

I live in Yorkshire and it roughly a 4hr drive to any of them places, I understand it's for a Skype interview.

 

I have a friend who managed to get his Skype interview done at home, he's very good at arguing his case! Has anyone else managed this? Does anyone know the exact location of the 3 sites so I can work out which will be best for me if I have to go?

 

Cheers

Are you sure its for a skpe interview & not your practical skills assessment? My OH had to go to London for an 8hr skills assessment which was an intense practical & written examination.

Yeah it's definitely a Skype interview, if I fail it then I will have to do the practical test. Where abouts in London did he go to?

 

As an aside why didn't he do his practical in Preston? Just noticed your from Halifax, you're trying to escape the *@it hole as well eh?

I've decided that a trip to Glasgow is the route I'm going to take, anybody else doing their 2nd part of the skills test there on the 22nd?

Hi Gumster

 

We're off to sunny Perth, been all over Oz and liked there the most plus I have 2 sisters there so it'll make the transition so much easier.

 

Chris, I'm a qualified Carpenter and Joiner and have done just about everything in the trade except for formwork, for the last couple of years I've been doing 1st and 2nd fix on extensions. Lots of traditional roof work.

I'm confident that I'll get through ok after talking to a couple of mates that have already done it but if not I'll just do the practical.

Hi!

 

Just wondering if you can give me any info on what the interview was like? What type of questions they asked, how you answered? etc We have just found out today that we have passed the 1st stage so now have to pay to do either the technical or practical...my OH would prefer the practical but i cant seem to find any dates of when the next ones are, I've emailled Vetassess so hopefully will get back to me soon. Just dont want to be waiting months for the practical...

 

Thanks for any help you can give!

 

Nat
