Jarrel Samuel, currently in the last year of a 4 year apprenticeship.JS and JC

 

"This apprenticeship was the best opportunity for me after I left school because I wanted to get into a working environment. Over the few years I have been at Vikoma I have been able to improve my independent thinking and build the confidence to complete jobs correctly without assistance. Also, it has helped in improving my ability to work with other members and learning from them along the way."
