Learning to progress
Some great news for one of our participants who has been on the programme since September 2018. She was approaching 30, had worked as a volunteer, but had not worked in paid employment since leaving school. It was important for her to ‘own’ what was written in her CV, something which she struggled with. To build this up she enrolled on a Customer Service online course, Functional English and ICT. She engaged with our workshops and met with our Employer Engagement Manager really taking advantage of everything the project has to offer. These pieces all started to fit together and led to her applying and now attending an Access course, which will then lead to her plan of enrolling on a Degree course. Looking back over her year it’s amazing seeing her determination and courage to overcome her barriers. Just one example of a positive HeadsUp journey.
