Jordan Miller, Aged 19, From North Shields

20 July 2016


Jordan Miller, aged 19, is working towards the career of his dreams with Connect.

When Jordan left school he went to a traditional college to study general engineering. It was here he found he loved welding.

Jordan signed up for a traineeship with Connect to give him marketable skills and real work experience to secure his ideal welding job.

He said: "At Connect I get to work on real projects and learn from experts in the field. Everything is focussed on you and what you want to do. For my latest project I helped to weld a metal memorial bench for a local hospital. You can’t learn skills like that in a classroom! Connect has also got fantastic links with industry and employers. It’s much better than college here.”

"Connect has given me the opportunity to do what I love, which is Welding."
