“When you invest in yourself, you don’t worry about what the minimum wage is, because you know what you bring to the table and what you bring is a lot more than minimum wage,” he said.

“Others and no one should tell you what they would pay you because you know what you are worth, you know what you bring to the table,” he added.

Hon Wheatley detailed that the skills training programme was undertaken by skilled experts in their field.
