Allahgul Mohabatti, known as Ali, was shortlisted for the Retail, Hospitality and Tourism Apprentice of the Year in 2017. He was only 11 when he came to the UK as a refugee from Afghanistan. He went to live with foster carers who have supported and cared for him, but he struggled academically. Aged 16, with poor English and Maths skills and no GCSEs, Ali was signposted to the Michaeljohn Training Academy in Manchester. The Academy is a long-established provider with a national reputation for its hairdressing and barbering training. Ali started on a nine-week programme which was designed to support him in his basic skills and provide a route into employment. The Academy found a local employer, Friends Barber The post From Refugee to Apprenticeship Success appeared first on The Asian Apprenticeship Awards - 29th November 2018 - Edgbaston Cricket Ground Birmingham.
