Re: Finding a job

Re: I got an apprenticeship!

Thank you, everyone! :D I'm looking forward to getting back to work although I am a bit nervous after losing my last work placement back in September. I've got a positive feeling about this place though. Hopefully, I'll have better luck this time.

Easy recipes

Hi, I was wondering if somebody could suggest some healthy recipes for meals which are quick and easy to prepare/make? The idea of cooking for myself honestly scares me, but I want to get better at it.

Re: I have dyspraxia and I struggle with maths

Hi there! I was in a similar situation when I did my Level 3 extended diploma. I failed my maths GCSE at school in 2016 so I had to retake at college. Eventually passed on the fourth time last summer. My advice is practice with past papers (you can usually find them online). If possible, get somebod...

Re: Hello, I'm new

Oh welcome country girl - I was diagnosed when I was 50. I suspect Pete Guest may be interested if you write up your experiences of becoming an agricultural worker - have you seen the magazine he writes? http://www.dyspraxialifemagazine.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/cropped-NEWWW-LOGO-1.png You ...
