She expressed a particular interest in the Painting element of the course and sought to undertake work experience in this field. After completing, the first week of this work placement Bridget was offered a full time Apprenticeship with the employer. Bridget has grasped at this opportunity with both hands and has since commenced her Apprenticeship in Painting. When asked how she was enjoying the work she sis ‘I absolutely love it!’ A great success story for a non-traditional trade candidate!”
