I joined this course because I wanted to try out different trades to see which one I preferred. The course is great because it’s practical and you get to try so many things - painting and decorating, carpentry, electrics and bricklaying. Coming to an open event was really helpful. I was able to speak to the tutors and, when I came to the college, I already knew them.
