Mums from the WOW team finish on a high

In November, the last group of mum from the CGCC WOW team finish on a high after completing our 10 day Interior decorating course and work experience at Clockhouse Community Centre in Woolwich.

This is the third group we have worked with and all the mum were as always amazing to work with.  Out of the six who started four completed the 3 day practice sessions, four completed the work experience and three achieved the L1 Award in HS&E, and to date one has passed the cscs test.

See below some of the highlights
