Read what our learners say

“I lost my job due to the pandemic, after being furloughed for a number of months. At the time my confidence in my skills and qualifications was very low, so much so that I was doubting whether I was employable at all. I felt I needed all the help I could get.

The workshop has made a big difference to me as I got plenty of reassurance that with my skills and experience, I would be employable. My tutor Hannah was very supportive and informative giving all the participants practical advice on job search and CV writing. On top of this, she assessed my CV and gave me feedback with suggestions for improvement which made it look very professional. I am grateful for her input as it helped me a lot with identifying what kind of job I could do over the next two years and actually succeed at getting it.”
