Thomas started Eastleigh College studying Level 2 Diploma in Plumbing, and has progressed through the Level 3 and is now working towards becoming Gas Safe registered. He has an Apprenticeship with a local plumbing and heating company.
When Thomas first left school he wasn’t sure what sort of career he wanted – he looked into joining the Military and the Navy, and also considered following in his dad’s footsteps and becoming a Chef. He went to several College open events to try and get a feel for different subjects, which is where he came across the Diploma in Plumbing at Eastleigh College.
Thomas has previously studied a Level 2 Diploma in Engineering at Eastleigh College during his last years at school, so he already knew the College well. He spoke to the lecturers at our open event about his options and decided that a course in Plumbing was for him.
