Once you have uploaded all of the neccessary files please contact your Assessor and they will guide you on the process of downloading the Skype App onto your mobile device ands scheduling a good time to arrange a video call.

We will be giving you a call whilst you are on site and this will involve asking questions on doors in which you have installed or have service and repaired (dependant on what NVQ you have chosen).

A Skype account is not dependent on where you use it. If you are new to Skype, or want another brand new account for your device, just register there: http://www.skype.com/go/register. You don’t necessarily need to do so on your iPad or iPhone, but on any computer.
