I've got an ongoing issue with Reading college that i don't know how to resolve or even speak too about resolving so thought i'd put it out on here. As you do. My son, who i employ, completed his 2nd year of college where he should have received his NVQ level 2 carpentry. He finished back in june 2019. He should have received his qualifications no later than October, so i was told. We got certificates to say he passed all his modules, some with merit. Except he hasn't fully passed yet. The final assessments has to go out from the college to an independent assessor for his final grade to receive the NVQ level 2. Heres where its gone wrong. Part of his assessment was a site visit. There's supposed to be 3 site visits but the third wasn't done. Unfortunately the assessor has been in poor health and has taken a considerable amount of time off work. When he came back in September he did his final site visit. (Harry had left college by this point). The assessor was happy with everything and signed it off. Or so we thought. 8 months later we are still waiting for it all to go through. The assessor is now off work long term with his health, plus of course the covid - 19 thing has now kicked off. I have of course been on the phone to the relevant people at the college who just keep telling me "it's in the system"," its being processed and should be done soon". Bare in mind its still got to go out to an independent assessor. Its a mess and an absolute disgrace that a college has messed an 18 year old's apprenticeship like this. The lad has worked hard but for no reward. Who can i speak too to get this sorted? I wanted Harry to do his 3rd year but no chance of that happening (putting aside the virus thing). For one , he doesn't want to deal with the college anymore and secondly he couldn't anyway as level 2 hasn't come through. The relevant people at the college have assured me they're happy with his work ,yet don't seem to be able get it assessed independently from the college. I know this isnt an isolated case either. What on earth is this college doing? and how can i get people involved that will help us. ? Any thoughts?
Some of you might already know but im currently DJing on an online radio station playing House music. The station has now been granted an DAB licence from Ofcom. Its great news for everyone involved with the station. If anyone wants to get involved, be it DJing or has a company that you want to promote through our adverting space PM me and we'll get something sorted and i can explain in more detail. Sorry if i sound a bit spammy. Didnt know how else to do this. We will be broadcasting hopefully 03/04/20. We will cover Berkshire, Surrey and SW London. It will be the only legal station playing the best in underground and mainstream dance music.

As this hospital continue to look after my 11 year old son Archie, my oldest son Harry has decided to do this charity run up the walkie talkie tower to help raise some money. I did this but up the BT tower about 4 years ago and the LFW faithful were amazingly generous with donations. Any donations will be massively appreciated. https://www.justgiving.com/Runmaynardrun?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=fundrais
Im with a company called Plan.com that took over from o2. I was on a 2 year contact with a samsung A16. Two months ago i was due a renewal . They phoned me up to see if i wanted to upgrade my phone or reduce my monthly phone bill. I was happy with my phone so it seemed obvious just to reduce my bill from £32 to £27 p/m. Ive had no problems with company or phone in the 2 years. 2 months in and low and behold my phone has decided to die on me. It wont charge up. I contacted the company and they told me there's nothing they can do. Im now tied into a 2 year contract with no phone and they wont replace because the new contract does not come with a phone. So i now have to start a new contract with whoever and pay monthly and also still pay £27 p/m to a contract that's completely worthless to me. There's a £900 buy out clause! Do a file this under the should have known better file or is there an answer to this whereby im not going to be paying for two phone contracts for one phone? Anybody had similar or any advise?
His name keeps cropping up in all the SM threads at the mo so i thought it was worth starting his own one. I dont for one minute think he should go. He's exactly what we need while we have these owners. Someone who's a football man and understands QPR. However i do think he needs to get a grip on his roll and improvements need to be made. The idea of a DoF running the football side of things ,i thought, was to keep a consistency in the way we play and our recruitment. We seem to be very sporadic still in all these areas. Just wondered what the general consensus is at the moment.
I didn't want to post this on the political neutral zone of the Frankie thread so thought i'd post a new thread. Thought provoking song and vid. It's not really saying anything we don't already know but nonetheless a tune that speaks for a lot people. Check out all the nightclubs that have closed down at the end of the vid. If you add all the public houses to that list its quite striking how London has changed in the last 20 years. Some might say for the better i guess.
When was the last time one of our CB scored two goals? And who was our highest scoring CB?
Ive no idea what the answer is, just thought I'll throw the question out there. I'm rubbish at stats and have an appalling memory. At a guess im thinking Fenwick or MacDonald or Shittu. Didnt Matt Connolly get a brace once?
