I'm Josh Blount from Beckenham, and I'll be 21 next month. Although I was not in education, employment or training for over a year from the age of 17, I got a distinction for a creative music producer course at access to music in croydon and am currently in the second year of an HND in music production at east surrey college. I am working on several creative projects, both as a solo artist and in collabration with other artists. I also have part time clerical work at a company based in London. Most of my friends are not in education, employment of traning and feel discouraged about their long-term prospects. I think my story would encourage young people who are not in emplyment to keep their ambitions alive.
