Level Best in Lockdown: May Round Up I

Level Best in Lockdown: May Round Up I


1st to 8th May 2020


Picking up where we left off last post, we are pleased to still be operating our service at Level Best
and are only getting better at this new way of doing things.

Highlights this month included;

  • Some old faces rejoined us and have shared what they've been up to.
  • Trainees have been sending us their own videos, inspired by videos staff have been recording
    and RDB reviews, interviews with Artco trainee Ryan Balkwill are now a weekly occurrence.
  • We've established regular group chats on Skype, which are proving to be the mainstay
    of our trainees week.
