“I would like to get out of my shell more, gain work skills, gain work experience and ultimately get an apprenticeship in Joinery ”

Hi my name is Ollie, I am 20 years old and I live in Cheltenham and I have lived here my whole life.
I went to All Saints Academy the experience was adequate. After school I when to college to study Multi Skills it is where you learn to do plastering, bricklaying, carpentry/joinery, wallpapering, plumbing, slabbing and tiling.
The most enjoyable subject for me was carpentry/joinery this is the trade that I would like to get in to. I found out about Commercial Foundation at Cheltenham job centre where I met Kareta and Fe. I decided to give it a go as I would like to get out of my shell more, gain work skills, gain work experience and ultimately get an apprenticeship in Joinery.
In 5 years’ time I would like to have a job in joinery with a local company and I would like to have a car or a truck.
