WE’RE ALL TRADESMEN – SO WHAT IS A PROFESSIONAL ?

In this wonderful new world where everybody and their dog are called “professional,” the question must be raised if this term has any real meaning? Plumber; Professional Plumber; Sanitary Engineer. Professional health care workers: in some cases with no on the job training, hired for 8 pound and hour and marked up to 24 pounds and hour to sell to the NHS…….. mind boggeling profits in the middle!

In the real world, most of the information memorized to pass exams rapidly vanishes, as virtually all workers who belong to so-called profesional associations will admit that after a few years on the job, the vast majority of what they know and practice was learnt on the job….doesn’t this sound like tradesmen…learning on the job!
