No John I never have and I would never carry such things in a Harrods' bag. Perish the thought :-0

I was answering Sue's question, John.

You had assumed.


SylviaInCanada Report 8 Oct 2012 20:55

never seen one of those NROVA

they must have come in post 1967, when I left the UK

so I must be very much older than John :-D

I never had to show any of my certificates from school, or degrees from university to anyone, when applying for jobs.

I just had to explain what I had in the various degree courses ....... and I was believed :-D

I must have a very trustworthy looking face :-D :-D

that is why I agree that Sue is so wonderful.

:-D :-D :-D :-D


Suzanne Report 8 Oct 2012 21:34

You are wonderful Sue

I bow at your feet( just for a min,dont want you getting big headed)



JackBunion Report 8 Oct 2012 21:34

Sylvia Age is only a number :-D :-D We are both teenagers mentally. I am 18 when I get out of bed, and then I look in the mirror :-D :-D

Hardly anything about NROVA's on Google. My wife has still got hers with her NVQ Level 3 in Office Management and all her other certs (like O level Welsh and O level Domestic Science). Introduced in 1987, and I remember times when nobody came for interview (no youngsters certainly) without this tablet detailing their life.

There must be thousands of these boxes lying around somewhere. I think we should have our best bits on here preserved in one for our posteriors :-D With SueM being first - as is her entitlement after HM the Queen and Dame Edna.


Gins Report 8 Oct 2012 21:36

Not the case these days Sylvia....have to have the original cert for proof of qual, no photo copies.....and proof of GCSE English/Maths

You can no longer teach without this proof and teachers need to have a teaching qual along with, occupational competence

What the heck is NROVA ????


Allan Report 8 Oct 2012 21:42

Never Remember Our Various Awards?? :-D

I have to say the tears were streaming down my face and laughing was painful after reading supercrutch's reply

:-D :-D :-D


SueMaid Report 8 Oct 2012 22:22

Ummm.....excuse me Jax. This thread is about ME :-|


jax Report 8 Oct 2012 22:25

Sorry Sue

Yes you are wonderful...but the comment was so funny :-D


Allan Report 8 Oct 2012 22:25

Hmm! Another gyroscope, Sue?? :-D :-D


SylviaInCanada Report 8 Oct 2012 22:36



I'm a fully qualified teacher ................. no Education degree, but received my qualification registration from Dept of Educ in London after working for 1 year and demonstrating to the powers-that-be that I was good at it. Exactly the same qualification as someone with an Education degree would have got.

Do you mean, I've lost that qualification???

OH never did get his qualification, despite teaching since 1964 ....... he taught in a private school in the UK and they were not part of the qualification scheme, whether or not you had a teaching degree or not. He then taught in universities over here from 1967, until present day.

Sorry, Sue ...................... not to distract from your thread :-D :-D :-D


SueMaid Report 8 Oct 2012 22:51

Yes - it was funny Jax :-D

Hello Allan :-D

Sylvia - you can distract now. I'm getting rather bored with people telling me how wonderful I am ;-)

Suzanne thank you for bowing at my feet - I couldn't do that as I wouldn't be able to get back up :-0


SylviaInCanada Report 8 Oct 2012 23:07


you can't get bored so quickly

we'll all have to change our tactics, and tell you how disgraceful you are :-D :-D
