“When I was at Langley Park School for Boys my best subject was DT. I loved getting my hands dirty and making things and it was my best subject at school. When I left school I didn't know what to do but my friend Zac told me about his mom who runs apprenticeships. I came to the Factory and I really liked how busy it was and then I met Kyri from K Sewing. Kyri said I could train to be a machine mechanic and it's such a sick job. Every day is different and I meet loads of people. Uni wasn't for me but this apprenticeships is right. One of my highlights so far was winning an award for commitment and dedication and I got to meet Alex Pritchard player for Tottenham Hotspur.”
