The panel is wise enough to understand whether the candidate is giving them studied/ copied answers or genuine answers that is reflected from indivudual's personal experience. As sarah jessica pointed out universities ...

voluntary

It is a shame but there are people who needs these roles to get an experience. We have someone started recently as a PWP and working for £0.

I feel sorry for her but she has told me that this is the only way to get a foot in door.She might be right?

Band 4 or band 5 Low Intensity

I have started as band 4 trainee but I was offered to be upgraded(reference to having a successful interview) to band 5 and not attend to university due to having enough qualifications already.

Should I go for band 5 interview or should I stay as band 4 and do the training?

Many Thanks,
