Story

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.

Trying everything on to make sure it fits!

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!

Doing some work with the multi-skills group at St Mungo's

I'm amazed by how quickly my campaign is funding. I have now raised enough to pay for a deposit for my course so I can get started in September. Until then I will keep working to improve my skills in construction and studying the electrical textbooks.

Everything is moving in the right direction and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. 💡

Thank you!
