No, but yes. No, I was not being serious ( a rare event). But yes, there
is a lot of money in training these days, since it all started being
outsourced. The company I used to work for had about 40 staff, delivering
NVQ assessments and everything from door manager courses to health and

The other partner had a Merc and her husband a Peugeot. All in the same
week. I was told I could not have a pay rise on the grounds that the
company couldn't afford it. I left the next week. But yeah, the money is
there. You have to get used to dealing with Govt funding agencies, though,
