News 2

Hi all - lots of exciting news from me 🙂

The week before last I completed my training early, and I've now started full-time work as a carpenter!

It's been a very full-on transition as I start at 7.30am each morning and work through to 5pm. I'm still settling in after which I'll be able to focus on getting assessed whilst at work and attaining my NVQ 👊

I'll let you know how I get on and just want to finish by saying a massive thank you to all my supporters; I honestly wouldn't believe I'd be where I am today even 3 months ago. Thank you so much for all your help in getting me here.

Getting stuck in with my training.

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to say another massive thank you to whose who have supported me through Beam and to those who are at Beam as well.

I’m half way through my training now to be a carpenter and although I have found it hard sometimes adjusting to my new routine, I’m reaping the rewards. I'm proud of my new found determination and positivity. 👍

Many thanks again,

Rick.
