“I started my career as an apprentice at South Devon College and went on to enjoy many years working in local garages. I wanted to share the specialist skills and knowledge I obtained so decided to return to the College as a Learning Support Technician. I’m now a Trainer Facilitator and really enjoy providing support to students who are hoping to progress in the industry.”James Doe
