It became a problem and one day two years ago her old husband went into the tree and climbed up to a reasonable height and beheaded the tree as she said. Then she wept for a…

centre for vocational development of young people in wales

Hi all,

I am looking for volunteers (eventually paid hopefully) particularly an administrator and a fundraiser to work with me on setting up a project.

I've attached a rough concept note if people could check it out and let me know their thoughts, whether they are interested, and also pass it on to other people.

Maeve Scullion TEAM (capitals, hey?) panel introduction

Presentation Training

One of the many advantages and i mean many of being a part of NTW and Team is all the training workshops you get to do. Today was Presentation Training with Lesa and once again i was able to learn new things that i can continue to put into practice throughout University and beyond. Interactive and enjoyable it was the perfect learning environment and it also helped being surrounded by fellow Team members who were all so supportive.


If the opportunity arises again to go to a…
