2022 School-based Apprentice or Trainee of the Year Winner: Sebastian Streat


Sebastian chose his apprenticeship because he loves working outside with his hands. Having made some life-long friends, he has enjoyed the course much more than he initially thought. Despite being diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), severe expressive and receptive language delays and an intellectual disability Sebastian has excelled in his traineeship and is (rightly so) very proud of himself for completing his course.

Sebastian says his colleagues have shown him a great deal of patience and enabled him to build his skills in time management, work ethic and responsibility. Despite the barriers he faced, Sebastian was driven to achieve good results within his course, and with support from teachers and students, he could accomplish this.
