“I didn’t like school, but I knew Wintec would be more hands on so I thought I’d go for it. The Introduction to Trades course was really good because I got a taster of lots of trades. I thought I’d choose mechanics, but I found that I liked plumbing a lot more. Now I’ve nearly finished my plumbing qualification and I already know I’ll enjoy my career because of all the work experience I’ve had on the course.” JESSE, Certificate in Trade Technology student
