Greenstead celebrate with 4 participants moving into employment or training in March

Our Greenstead based Peer Support Worker has been busy supporting participants to move forward and become more confident. With the help and support of a HeadsUp trainer who facilitated some workshop sessions during March, the team are delighted that four participants have now moved onwards and upwards from the project since the beginning of this year.

It’s been great to celebrate their achievements with them.

* One has successfully completed his Construction Skills Certification Scheme training course and is due to sit the exam shortly which is a great achievement already!

* Another has commenced two accredited online training courses specialising in digital skills – Digital Marketing, and Introduction to Cyber Security.

* A third has been working through Maths and English qualifications, starting at Entry Level, and achieving her Level 1 qualifications earlier this year. She is now working at Level 2, and is keen to continue progressing in both subjects.

* A fourth participant has grown in confidence through attending a training course, and is now actively looking for apprenticeships or traineeships in retail/customer service.

We have also welcomed five new participants to our HeadsUp programme in Greenstead since the beginning of the year, and our Peer Support Worker is working closely with them to help them achieve their goals and overcome some of their barriers.

Some great outcomes here, do get in touch if you would like to see how you might get involved!
