Sam enrolled in the Trades Primary Industries programme because he’s looking at a career in farming and he thought that the practical skills would be really beneficial. After he finishes school he plans to work on a farm for a while and then go to Telford to study agriculture.
For Sam, learning to use ATV (quad) bikes and chainsaws has been a real highlight. “Trades is a good opportunity to get out and do something practical. I go hunting quite a lot and really like being in the outdoors. The practical skills we’re learning will be really helpful for what I want to do in the future.”
