For me this is the second year that I've lost a job just before Christmas.
My dream is to take a locksmithing course in Wakefield and gain a Level 3 City & Guilds certificate, get a GQA Corgi fenestration skills card and be registered on the Corgi fenestration skills register.
The course itself is five days residential with a choice of further courses later down the line.
Through the course I would be able to purchase dicounted tools and have access to 24 hour technical back-up.
I would need a van, stock and working capital as well as funds for advertising.
After the course I will become a sole trader and start looking for work. I would be able to work for the police, subcontract for other firms, contact all estate agents in the area as well as offer 24hr callout.
I have worked for other engineering companies for most of my life as either a fitter or industrial installer, I have worked in all weathers, attended breakdowns at all hours and want to offer that on my own.
Last year my wife to be was diagnosed with a rare disease that has no cure, it's an autoimmune disease that is degenerative and I have lost my job.
My dream is to acheive my goals and make my partner proud and with your help I can do it.
In just a few months I could be my own boss and start giving peace of mind to others, keep property secure, gain entry that is not destructive and eventually pass on my knowledge to locksmithing apprentices.
Right now this is a dream but tomorrow it could be a reality.
