As we bid farewell to an extraordinary journey with the inspiring young individuals from Carlisle Youth Zone. The final work experience week was truly remarkable, leaving an enduring mark on our hearts with their growth, enthusiasm, and camaraderie.

In the joinery workshop, participants showcased newfound skills, crafting eco-friendly bird boxes that highlighted conservation’s importance. Each took home their creation as a heartfelt Christmas gesture.

In mechanical engineering, the final week marked the culmination of participants’ journey, mastering troubleshooting and machinery intricacies, with an exciting clip-fitting challenge.

Logistics continued to impress, with insights into supply chain dynamics and hands-on experiences like PAT testing and cable rewiring. Their ability to streamline processes showcased professionalism beyond their years.

Concluding their office experience, these individuals not only learned business support but became integral contributors, handling calls, printing, and even engaging in photography and drone flights. Their collaborative spirit, attention to detail, and eagerness to learn have left a lasting impact on our team.

To the remarkable young people from Carlisle Youth Zone, your passion, curiosity, and resilience have made this experience truly special. As you embark on your next journey, know that you’ve been more than participants—you’ve been integral members of our team. Wishing you abundant success in your future endeavours, and may the skills and memories gained be the catalyst for your continued growth.

I had a good time and enjoyed seeing what your workplace is like, really liked when I was pat testing talking apart and servicing the saw and I enjoyed my first week taking pictures and flying the drone.


Everyone was so kind and I loved being here and I enjoyed everything!


Great experience, would definitely do it again.
