Gavin’s story

Gavin’s story

It is always great to see the progress people are able to make when working with us at Momentum and Gavin’s story is a great example.


Gavin started stage 2 of our Skills Development Scotland (SDS ) course with Momentum Galashiels. As part of this Gavin completed his projects to gain his SVQ level 3 Personal Development award and went on to start a work placement. 
Gavin was placed at Abbotsford House, home of Sir Walter Scott on work placement as a Landscape Gardener. Gavin was so successful on his work placement he was offered a Modern Apprentice placement at Abbotsford House and has even managed to progress onto stage 3 of the SDS course to achieve his SVQ Level 4!


Gavin said “The team at Momentum were so helpful and understanding that they gave me the drive and determination to succeed”


Gavin starts his Modern Apprentice in September this year and Momentum Galashiels wish him all the best in his new future endeavour!
