A Southampton man has transformed his life after a unique back to work training scheme gave him the self-belief, confidence and relevant experience to land a dream apprenticeship.
Aaron Ramsey, age 24, from Sholing is now two months into his trainee workshop engineer role with Lymington-based Scorpion Ribs Ltd – class leading manufacturers of luxury and custom-made rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) and with clients like Sir Ben Ainslie – but it was only made possible following a successful Change Direction programme run by Isle of Wight youth charity UKSA.
