Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installation
Previous school: Meole Brace School

When I was at school I knew I wanted to be trained in a trade and completed work experience with labourers – they advised me to become an electrician. There is a great atmosphere at the College and I want to continue with a Level 3 Apprenticeship after this year.
