Meet our Princes Trust duo!

A slightly delayed, albeit, definitely worth waiting for, introduction to our Princes Trust VPA’s! Image

First up is Edward Brown. Edward read Ecology at the University of Essex and has postponed his PGCE to gain more work experience. Edward chose to come to Groundwork because he admires the work we do with both the Environment and Communities. He also wanted to gain some valuable work experience and thought the VPA programme was a good opportunity to work with young people and help them to further their development.

Edward has not specified his favourite cake, maybe he forgot to write it down when his mind went into cake overdrive, but never fear – I will be finding out his fave spongey treat when he returns to the office!

Meet Nathaniel Clegg! Nathaniel gained a 2:1 in Popular Music with Honours from Manchester Metropolitan University. He chose the VPA scheme as he had previously volunteered with Groundwork on the practical countryside skills course and he just couldn’t tear himself away! No – not really, his team leader, Matt, recommended he apply for the VPA scheme! Cheers Matt :). Nathaniel hopes to gain work experience from the programme to increase his employability and improve his CV. He also wants to gain Project Management experience and keep himself busy!

Now – because Nathaniel has simply put ‘Cheese’ at the end of his bio, I can only assume that he means cheesecake to fit in with the cake theme, however, cheese in general is pretty darn good too, so who knows!
