The 'very' basic education qualifications are currently NVQ level 2 English & maths and according to the AEC's there's still a huge backlog. However colleges are running them regularly. What do you currently hold (PM if necessary).

Putting that aside, what type of leadership qualification will depend on specific area of employment your focusing on?

Btw, I'm bloody surprised you've done door work with a bad back mate

its all the silly little ones they hand out like working well as a team stuff. like u finish a block course and they hand them out to everyone.. just needing somthing to bulk it out about. so far got my school grades.. and some city and guilds.
acctually appliying for a job as a train driver.. so its trying to somehow gather all the skills and turn them into something that they want to hear.. been at this two days and pickled my head.
yeah.. me to.. but somehow managed to slip under the radar hah

Ok, without sounding harsh there's no such thing as silly qualifications when dealing with civilian employment, as long as your CV profile narrative is up to date, legible and you have qualifications and facts to support.

C&G type quals are good, applying for a train driver vacancy will have a element of specific training as mandatory however if you get the chance spend time on the tube drivers thread as there's a couple of posters who are ex overground drivers with better subject knowledge.

I'd also recommend speaking to your local college career advisor for research and preparation guidance.

Lastly, practice your interview skills, confidence, mannerisms and key factual bullet points with friends & family if your out of practice.
