After School 1

I was awarded a certificate for 120 words per minute shorthand and 60 words per minute in typing.

After leaving school, I enrolled at Lambert’s Commercial College in North Shields to do a shorthand and typing course. I was awarded a certificate for 120 words per minute shorthand and 60 words per minute in typing. I worked for a while at the Waverley Hotel in reception, but it was only for three months during the summer. I applied to Wallsend Slipway and Engineering Co. Ltd. and got a job there.
