"After completing my GCSE's I decided to study hospitality, but soon realised that it wasn't for me. I wanted something hands-on and outdoors. So I attended an open day at the College with my parents, I liked the modern workshop, and after talking with the tutors decided to enrol. I would encourage other women to embrace the opportunity to push the boundaries. The best part of the job is seeing the finished product." Natalie Parker, C&G Level 2 Diploma In Site Carpentry (QCF)
