Another successful DART learner!

Alex Roberts from Alfreton, Derbyshire went to college to study Travel and Tourism. However, when he saw a job close to home on the National Apprenticeship website that meant he could combine his studying with a job earning money, Alex decided to apply. The bonus was that the apprenticeship was at a golf club. This suited him too, as he had always had a love of sport.
