This new venture is proving to be most successful and students, through their work-placement experience are able to gain new “soft skills” which enhances their CV and considerably improves their future employment prospects.

Through the WAG Strategic Insight Programme David also provides support to a Welsh charity, Perthyn who care for physically and mentally handicapped individuals, enabling them to live within a community environment. David has recently been appointed Chair of the Board of Trustees of Perthyn and is also Chair of the Finance Scrutiny Committee.
