Definite downward trend

And they keep on comin'!

I wasn't sure the CLG would continue to depress everyone with these updates now that HIPs are mandatory on all homes. But I guess it helps to reinforce the message to potential newcomers that the industry is crowded, if nothing else.

(Actually, there is something else: It also helps reinforce low fees too!)

[DEA numbers history]

Numbers of DEAs

Assessor Numbers as of 29th Nov 2007
StageNumber of assessors/candidates

6,002 (+208)


865 (-42)

Passed exams

3,799 (+60)

Total in system who have passed exams or progressed further

10,666 (+106)

Accreditation slowdown: Previously, they rose by 304 (down from 340); this time: 208 - So now we can definitely, definitely say there is a downward trend.

It will be interesting to see whether those who have qualified  - but not accredited - will rush to do so in the weeks to come now that HIPs are full market.

Total growth slowing: Previously, total numbers in the system rose by 373 (down from 439); so again, another definite downward trend: 106.

HES v Quidos

Well I am another statistic to add to the growing number of candidates who have NOT completed the course due to HES and their training partner Quidos, in a "SHOWDOWN" regarding monies outstanding.

Why are we candidates in the thick of this and WHO can HELP us, who have invested over £3000 of our own money, to enter a new career.

I will go to the TV and National Press who else will help me.
