Stephen had very little self belief when he first enrolled on to the course and was incredibly reserved; however he was a very keen learner; completing all tasks on time and achieved 100% attendance.

Stephen attended a work placement where he carried out Business Administration duties but a lack of confidence was holding Stephen back and was he was unsure if he could do this type of work.  Nevertheless after a few motivational discussions with his Tutor, Stephen decided to step up to the challenge and achieve his goal to gain employment.  Stephen’s confidence grew whilst attending the 4 week course helping other members of the group with their course work.

With a good matching process, Stephen attended an interview with AKV Cladding in Shildon which proved to be a success and Stephen was offered a full time position in Business Administration in September 2016
