Henry’s goal was always to work in agriculture even though he is not from a farming background.
Placing an advert on social media secured his first placement on a Level 2 Apprenticeship which he found, after a few months, was not allowing him to progress fast enough.
Craven College helped Henry to secure a second placement, this time with Skelda Farm, West Marton, where they keep beef cattle and sheep. He has worked hard and has thoroughly enjoyed his time on the farm as well as always contributing well in class and showing great interest on the farm visits.
Henry’s employer, Neil Bancroft says:
“Henry is punctual and always uses his own initiative. He has become a very capable member of the team and is able to do all the tasks asked of him. His confidence has grown a lot over the last couple of years and he now also works weekends on a robotic dairy farm giving him further experience of the industry. Henry should be really proud of what he has achieved so far!”
