At college you learn the skills and intricate details you need, especially on Level 3. The biggest thing I found is it gives you a place to practise. When you get to site it's not practice, you're building and it's staying up. You've got to stand back and be happy with it. The big thing about college was the lecturers were brilliant, "not "yes, sir", "no sir." They taught you stuff you needed to know. You notice yourself becoming more useful at work. You learn something and then you can apply it.
