“I enjoyed Trades Academy because it was away from school and you get to learn in a different environment. The course allowed me to get some experience and get the chance to look at the aviation industry.
I really enjoyed working in the workshops. Trades opened up another world for me and it helped me to make up my mind about the sort of thing I wanted to do after I left school."
