Marcus’ other achievements for the year were to pass Edexcel Literacy in reading, writing and speaking / listening and to be involved in work experience placements in the College’s canteen and shop.
He was also involved in a video CV project with the Ellingham Charity and a gardening project to raise money for the charity Action for Kids.
After all the progress, Marcus was ready to make the transition to a higher level course and this year he has been working on the entry 2 Catering course, which includes being involved with the College’s Essential Cafe.
