"Previously I had worked in a factory, been a cleaner and a housewife. However reaching 40 years of age I wanted a change of career and the chance to do something a bit more challenging.
"Being on the Fast Track into Construction programme was very enjoyable and as a result I’ve been able to secure employment with Continental Landscapes Ltd."
I enrolled onto the Fast Track into Construction project and I was given a chance even with my age and sex. I completed asbestos awareness training, attended a course in Emergency life support, gained a Level 1 award in Health and Safety in Construction Environment and got my CSCS card. I did work experience with Wolverhampton Homes fencing team. Doing all these things on the Fast Track programme gave me knowledge and helped me gain confidence in myself and meet new people.
