OUT OF SCHOOL SUCCESS
Thomas Carter has made the Sussex U14 Boys County Hockey team this year. He has played in 6 matches so far against Surrey, Kent, London South, Buckinghamshire and Hampshire.
The remaining matches will completed by the end of May. This is a huge achievement for Thomas and is testament to the hard work that he has put in to a sport that he loves to play that he has earned his place in the team amongst a lot of boys who are privately educated, who play a lot of hockey at their schools.
Competing alongside Max, mentioned in a recent newsletter, Thomas (year 9) and his partner Julie (year 7) also represented the South East region in the UK Inter-Regional Acro Gymnastics Championships.
Here is a picture of them with their gold medals, helping the South East region to third place overall, behind Scotland and London.

APPRENTICESHIPS SPECIAL FROM REWARDS TRAINING
As you may be aware, here at Rewards we specialise in Apprenticeships – which are available to individuals age 16 and over. During National Apprenticeship week, we created a presentation which gives a good all-round understanding of what is on offer with Rewards. https://www.rewardstraining.co.uk/apprenticeship-video
Rewards have also started to offer Traineeship opportunities. Traineeships are an education and training programme with work experience for young people, whose preference is to find a job or apprenticeship but who lack the skills, experience and behaviours sought by employers.

There is also have a brand new ‘KEEP ME INFORMED’ option, which can be found on the vacancy page to make sure no opportunities are missed.
