Here’s Stephen’s latest blog:

On my last blog I talked about the job I had applied for, which is a plumbing apprenticeship with Pennaf Housing Ltd. Just to let you know I got through the first stage and have been shortlisted, which I’m really happy with.

I found out that 113 people applied for the two jobs, which is a three year plumbing apprenticeship. They then cut it down to 13 people and 10 people arrived to the assessment day, and I was one of the 10 people chosen.

I had to go to a meeting at EF offices at St Asaph in North Wales, where we had an overview of Pennaf Housing and what the job involves. On the assessment day, we had to undertake a number of tests, an interview and a practical task.

I feel I coped well with this and told them all about my work on the course, how I have got to Unit 25, my practical training and plumbing work experience, and they said they thought highly of my application, which is good.

They are due to invite 6 people to another interview on Monday (today) and then they will decide who will get the 2 places. I’ll have more on my blog next week about whether I get through.
