This program has been very beneficial for me. The people we work with are friendly and very helpful. The experience for working at a construction site has taught me so much about the industry in Scotland. Every day I discover something new onsite.
I did engineering in my country but things are very different here. The program has given me confidence and the experience I need to enable me to develop my existing skills and transfer them into a career of my choice. I met different contractors and worked with different people, giving me the experience I need to work on any site. When I came to Scotland, I tried to find work in construction, went to different companies and tried to get a CSCS card. I have waited for more than 2 years and tried to get work, had nearly given up hope, and was now working in security. This program has given me a starting point and I look forward to working in the area of my skill and have a proper career in Scotland.
