“I was a fisherman in the North Sea and west coast of Scotland for years. Although I loved it, I wanted a less risky job after my son was born.
The thought of having a trade had always appealed to me. I started at Cumnock Campus on an access course which covered Electrical and Plumbing work.
The course was great. It helped me to progress quickly, and I’m happier than ever now that I am a Modern Apprentice. It’s the best of both worlds, studying and working on the job is ideal.
In the future I’d like to start up my own business, concentrating on renewable and sustainable energy.”
