This week we feature Miriam.
"I am currently in a foster home with my sisters, and my foster mum says I am timid but become friendly with time and patience... can you give that to me? I would do best in a quiet and stable home, with people around to offer me support. I would not settle with a busy home or one with young children. I am quite a chatter box and have a very playful side. If this sounds like your kind of cat , please get in touch and we will put you in touch with my foster mum."
Since the start of the year, we've had more than 1,500 people sign-up to become apprentices. Some of them are re-skilling from one profession into a career they love. With skills shortages in key industries, employers are hiring and offering training through the fees-free apprenticeships programme.
Sign-up with Competenz to find your apprenticeship.
