Twin brothers Jack and James have been commended for their efforts in Talent Match and a residential camp, which has secured them both apprenticeships with a national company.

Jack and James, twin brothers from Doncaster, were given certificates of achievement at a celebration evening in Sheffield last week, following their role on the Talent Match programme and on a residential for young people.

The brothers were commended for inspiring other young people’s participation in the Talent Match programme as well as successfully completing the programme themselves, which helped them gain apprenticeships in track maintenance with Intertrain.

Talent Match is a programme that works with young people aged between 18 to 24 to remove barriers that are stopping them getting into education, training or employment.

“We have been really impressed with the programme and feel like we have been valued and supported through out.”

The celebration event in Sheffield was to celebrate young people’s achievements and participation in the residential camp, a two-night trip designed to build confidence and learn new skills.

The staff team from Changing Lives in Doncaster were thrilled to attend the event with the brothers and cheer them on as they collected their certificates.

The brothers have worked with Changing Lives’ centre in Doncaster previously, and the staff team were over the moon to see both brothers thrive in the Talent Match programme and residential, and get offered an apprenticeship too.

Jack and James said: “We gave been really impressed with the [Talent Match] programme and feel like we have been valued and supported throughout.”

A huge well done to Jack and James, and good luck in your new adventure!
