Deshaun and Joe, two friends who completed a Preparation for Employment course at Phoenix Training in February 2014 have found success by securing apprenticeships for themselves.
Both Deshaun and Joe had expressed an interest in working in the automotive industry.
Whilst on the programme, together with their tutor they identified a job vacancy for two apprentices at a manufacturing firm in Aston.
They both applied and were both short listed for an interview.
They both did well on the interview and started work together in April 2014 at Arthur John Charles Ltd, fabricating Land Rover panels for pre 2002 Land Rovers.
The Director of Arthur John Charles Ltd has said that he has now got a 3 year plan with the two lads as they will learn every process in the company.
The support for these two lads from Phoenix is second to none and they are now starting an initial 12 month apprenticeship.
