George left Holmwood School at 16 to work on his parent’s organic farm in Woodchuch, Ashford. In July 2010 George began the Intermediate Apprenticeship in Livestock Production. During his apprenticeship he achieved his Key Skills in Communication at level 1, an Emergency First Aid at Work certificate and his CS30/31 Chainsaw qualifications, completing the Level 2 Diploma in January 2012 to a high standard. Due to the standard of work produced and his commitment to the family farm he progressed on to the Advanced Apprenticeship straight away. He completed this in July 2013 in less than 18 months. Having proving to have the knowledge and a life time – so far – on the farm George has been given the further responsibility of managing the family farm. He is contemplating undertaking the Higher Apprenticeship in the near future, but first wants to get to grip with the new and highly responsible role he has been entrusted with.
