Testimonials

My time at steelworks had been the best 2 years of my life so
far!
Doing something I love everyday on my doorstep isn’t
something most 16-17 year olds can say… All the teachers
have supported me and helped me grow into the performer
that I’ve always wanted to be and without them I would never
be where I am today. The professionalism of Steelworks is to
such a high level, which has taught me how to behave in jobs
in the future.
I can’t thank Steelworks enough for what they have done for
me, it’s been perfect for me and the good fun happy
atmosphere is such a huge added bonus!”
