Coal Mining a worthwhile occupation
My brother is interested in becoming a miner. The link you've posted doesn't provide any information about training opportunities. Have you heard of any coal mining training in the area? Unfortunately we couldn't find too much information.
If I was him I'd forget about becoming a miner especially in Wales should he be able to find a colliery still operating.
You can spend your life down there, end up crippled by accident or lung disease and you'll get no thanks for it at the end.
Take it from me as I worked there as did my father who spent 40 years down the pit and ended with a terrible death with silicosis and thay didn't want to know him when it came to compensation.
If they are advertising for miners again telling to o down themselves.
