Kara gets her apprenticeship
Well done to Kara who, after a year with the project completing a pre-trade apprenticeship with Southampton City Council, has been offered a carpentry apprenticeship. Kara's start with the council wasn't without its issues but with the help of the project she has been able to turn it around and we are very proud of her. Why not watch the video on our homepage for her full story.
