When making a new start in life you need to make sure that you are getting the right training towards a new career.

A new start in life is a very exciting prospect and here at Able Skills we get lots of students looking to train and gain the qualifications for a new start. From all walks of life, we get students training in all the trades to start a new career.

Simon is one of many students here at Able Skills that are looking for a new start in their life and he has made the first steps towards his new career.

Three weeks ago, Simon began his painting & decorating course with us here in Dartford and hasn’t looked back since. He is working through the NVQ level 3 course that is eight weeks long and he is progressing very well.

After a few years of working as a HGV driver around the country, Simon realised it was time for a change and that he wanted to learn a trade. He wanted to learn something he enjoyed and that he could get very good at. Simon had also worked in the forces when he left school.

Before his course, Simon had only ever done the odd DIY work in his home but always enjoyed it. Now he couldn’t be happier that he has taken the plunge to begin a career as a Decorator.

He is really enjoying his course and is really glad he is now enjoying what he does. Simon is buzzing to get started for his new career. He described to us that he loves getting up in the morning to come to our centre and get his training going. So far he has completed some amazing work which can be seen above.

Once his course is complete, Simon will be working for himself and plans to complete all types of decorating work. This will allow him to spend more time with family and arrange his own working hours. Also, Simon’s wife is an interior designer, so they will be working together.

We would like to wish Simon the best of luck for the remainder of his course and for his new start in life!
