“I’ve developed key skills for employment and I’ve also improved my self-confidence. I benefitted from guest speakers, who provided a real understanding of working in the industry. I plan on becoming a fully qualified carpenter, and I am now well on my way to achieving that thanks to my studies.”Matt Oakely
