My boy is 16 next month and at the end of last term did a week's work experience in a garage which he took to like a duck to water. This is probably because my old man is a mechanic; the gene missed me, I'm fecking hopeless Anyway, I took him to the ACIO in Greenock so that the local infanteer wouldnt press-gang him into 5 SCOTS and while the bloke was very helpful as regards DVD's and info it all depended on my wee fellah's exam results and his planned school leaving date. He wants to stay on to complete this school year (Jun 11) by which time he will be 16 years and 9 months. Will there be slots for VM's next year and how long does the process take? I'm in Germany at the moment so its a bit hard for me to stay on top of this. Ta.
