A TEENAGER with autism is looking towards a career in mechanics after successfully spending time on work experience in a Hereford garage.
Nathan Mansell is hoping to start an apprenticeship in the future after securing a work placement at Griffiths Auto Services in his home city.
The 16-year-old, who lives with his mum Sam and dad Mark in the King’s Acre area, is looking to make the move when his full-time education at Summergil House, run by Orbis Education and Care, near Presteigne, comes to an end.
Nathan’s dad Mark said making the move from full-time schooling into the world of work was significant for any teenager, but was something which could never be taken for granted for those living with autism like his son.
