GAP student Milen Sachdave
Milen Sachdave struggled with his attendance on a previous course so joined the Get Ahead Programme (GAP) to help him succeed.
The 16-year-old said: “I had attendance issues on a previous course so joined this programme.
“I learnt about stress management, teamwork, debating and life skills. The teachers were very good and so understanding.
“I’m very grateful for being given a second chance – the programme has made me realise how important education is.”
Milen hopes to move on to a Prince’s Trust programme.
