I first attended College on the Motor Vehicle Recycling programme through the School/College Partnership. I really enjoyed it and applied for the Winter Leavers programme (now 24/7). On completing that I moved on to the Prince’s Trust Team Programme.
I used to find it difficult to talk in groups but I’m now much more confident. Staff at the College were great and really helped me improve my communication skills. I was also given support with my dyslexia.
During the Team Programme I undertook two weeks work experience at McCallum Bagpipes. They were pleased with my work and offered me a full-time job. I now make 13 bagpipes per week and really enjoy it.
