Studied: Practical Woodworking Skills Entry Level 3

As a new student arriving at College, Josh was apprehensive about the unfamiliar environment that he found himself in. Showing dedication and bravery, Josh has transformed from the person he was 2 years ago.

He seeks and embraces responsibility, utilises his initiative to achieve his goals and is ever more willing to embrace the ‘new’. From being able to initiate and maintain conversations, express himself with clarity and depth, to drawing, planning and constructing his wood projects, Josh epitomises the very essence of personal growth.
