Having joined the TCV WildSkills programme in March this year I optimistic but initially wasn’t sure what to expect or what I would be doing. I certainly didn’t think I would get the opportunity to spend a week building a boardwalk in the stunning scenery of the highlands or removing invasive species from peatbogs on the Isle of Islay. I have also been to London after I along with the rest of the trainees won an award in the TCV Hero awards in October.
Another great aspect of TCV is the chance to improve your own town and local area which has been a real source of pride and satisfaction. I have had a great 8 months with TCV and am looking forward to making the most of the time I have left on the Programme.
