Modestas Andrijauskas

Modestas first joined the College after moving here from Lithuania. He studied English for Speakers of Other Languages at Entry Level 2 and 3. The two years of study developed his English language skills and improved his confidence. On completion of the course, Modestas decided that he wanted to learn a trade so enrolled on the Level 1 Brickwork course.

Modestas has been learning the basic skills of bricklaying and is planning to go on to study Level 2. During his studies he gained real life experience with his class mates and tutor working at a local Nursery repairing the walls.
He plans to apply for Apprenticeships whilst studying at Level 2.
