Well, according to the Civil Servant speaking at the SAVA conference earlier this week, the Govt is waiting for more London DEAs - Will 32 more please Her Majesty's Government?

Or should we plunge a few more businesses and DEAs over the financial edge?

It's like the old fairground game, innit: "Shove 'a Penny"!

I became a qualified and accredited DEA in Sept.07 and since then I have carried out just 11 epc's (average 2/week). Throughout this time there are an abundance of training courses being carried out which quite obviously flood the sector with DEA's. The training providers are making ambitious statements like OTE £50K + etc. just to dangle a large carrot in order to bring yet more recruits into an already saturated arena. These mislead individuals are then parting with large sums of their money and the training providers are doing very well out of it.
