Trainee - Anyone with less than 6months experience
'What about the midlands firm who leaves all the recording to the supervisors and the digging to'

Absolutely right trenchhead - back when I was working within units this was a real bugbear with me - does it still exist ? I always considered this to be a complete failure of management to understand CPD and on-the-job training.

I once took over supervising on a very large and significant site where the utterly useless predecessor had insisted on doing all of the recording single-handed and was only approximately 1700 context sheets behind the actual digging. At tea-break on my first morning I suggested that all diggers should now record their own work, including photographs and drawings. This was greeted with complete silence and I assumed that I had stunned the team with my wisdom, only to discover that it was due to the fact that no-one was actually allowed to talk during tea-break as the supervisor was trying to concentrate on filling in context sheets and did not want to be disturbed by idle chit-chat.
