Another nice success story to share with you from our Work & Learn Team on the Supported Internship programme.
This time we’re on traffic duty…with Cumbria Police!
Hon Inspector Jim Thorburn from R2W Special Branch explains: “Tom joined the SI programme in September and was doing well at ATS tyre fitters in Carlisle until an accident meant that he was unable to complete his placement. We were happy to welcome Tom back to the programme following his recovery and were able to secure a placement for him with Cumbria Police in their Northern Traffic Unit in Carlisle. His Police mentor says: “I am very impressed with Tom’s pleasant attitude to work and life in general. He is a very determined young man who refuses to be held back.” Tom is loving his placement and learning valuable skills in his chosen field of vehicle maintenance. “
The write up in the Police notebook on Tom – ‘a fantastic opportunity.’
