Genesis is a Welsh Assembly backed organisation for funding people into college who otherwise would not be able to.
Elonwy: "we cannot pay for a full CBR check until you have paid for a basic CBR check."
Joe: "I require a full CBR check to be allowed on the course, why waste time and money on a light CBR test first? It is pointless."
Elonwy: "I will not back down."
"yes I agree that does make sense about not requiring a light CBR check
but you have missed the deadline now anyway because you didn't sort
this out before now."
Joe: "I tried to; I complained 2 months ago about Elonwy playing games and your response was to ignore it."
Estelle: "I remember, that is why I am helping you now. I hoped it would resolve itself."
Joe: "I am still waiting for the light CBR check from the police. I have missed the deadline now."
Estelle: "I'll send Ella to see you."
Ella: "what have the college said?"
"the college CBR check woman said they can't accept anybody on the
course until they do a CBR check although the course tutor says last
year they had a few who did late CBR checks and some of them were
allowed on the course even though they have something on their CBR. One
girl applied twice for CBR checks and nothing ever came back either
time, they still had her on the course too. Netmums.com is the best
resource on the internet for any info about this and it appears that it
is discretionary. The notion of 'pass or fail' a CBR check is a gray
area -discretionary- unless there's something really nasty shows up."
"we're in a catch 22 then because we can't pay for a CBR check until
the college accept you on the course. Also we need to do a separate CBR
check for every different place that you have work placement in which is
"if that is true then it applies to everyone and nobody would be able
to do the course and the course would be shut down for lack of numbers
since half of the people in there are receiving genesis funding without
this problem. By strange coincidence all of them are female."
Ella: "why do you even want to be on the course?"
"staff at the family center pointed out that I have a natural aptitude
with kids. I've done the level 1 training, Webster-Stratton and handling
kids behaviour programs and the tutors said the same, that I'm good
with kids. They encouraged me to take it further, at one time there was
talk of offering me work if I get the qualification. Half the kids in
the family center run over to see me, some of the little ones call me
daddy because they accept me as 'a' daddy; which is proof that the kids
trust me. Its awesome but it makes a few of the mams jealous. I'm glad
of this being in a public setting it where this has been observed. One
woman has been telling her son that I'm his daddy she means biological
and I've had to put a stop to that, its confusing for him and for my own
