I have successfully completed that training

I am one of the youngest people at Watford Workshop. I volunteered as a Workshop Assistant in 2011. Then I was taken on as a Warehouse Apprentice and I have successfully completed that training, which includes a full week getting qualified to drive a forklift truck – which isn’t that easy. As well as doing production in the workshop and driving the forklift, I now help our chef to cook healthy lunches – and I am the chef one day a week. In my spare time, I help Tom to teach disabled children to sail on Rickmansworth Aquadrome.
