Jamal has been successfully funded!
January 14, 2019

He raised £4,042 from 285 supporters to become an electrician.

December 26, 2018

I'm so grateful to all of my supporters and the Beam Team for helping me through my Level 2 electrician's training.

Now being able to do my Level 3 as well - it will open up more avenues and better job prospects. I'll be better equipped to work with less or no supervision given the experience that I have.

Thank you so much! 💡

Bending conduit pipes in my Level 2 course

October 25, 2018

I'm still really enjoying my course and studying as much as I can. On our last theory test I scored 90% and I've also passed the practical assessment in the workshop. Hard work is paying off!

In the photo above I'm testing a light circuit in the workshop. It's exciting to see it all come together.

I've started my course and everything is going very well. Last week, I did my first theory test test and I scored 82 - the second best in my class! 🎉

This week we’ve been doing some practicals as you can see in the photo. I'm finding that my previous experience with electrical work is really helpful. I've even been explaining things to some of the others on the course. I hope that when i'm fully qualified I can keep helping new students in this way.

Jamal 's first Beam campaign fully funded
September 15, 2018

August 16, 2018

I'm really looking forward to getting started on my training September. Today I came into the Beam office to pick up my PPE clothing and my laptop. 👷 💻

Now I'll be able to start revising the material online and reading up on electrician's forums. It will be great to strengthen my computer skills and get a good idea of the jobs that are out there. 💭

Thanks for your support and I'll keep you posted on how the course goes!

Trying on my new PPE

July 05, 2018

I'm really excited to get going and I've already started revising the material. I have some practical knowledge about electrics and now I'll be getting the theory to back it up.

I went through a bit of a tough time over the past few years - but I knew that if I was able to fight myself, then others would also help me out. So thank you! I really do appreciate it.
