This participant started the programme following a long period of unemployment and economic inactivity. During her initial engagement appointment she identified some issues which included low confidence, low motivation and low self-esteem.
She was keen to acquire new skills and to explore the possibility of gaining a qualification to address her personal barriers to work.
The participant attended her classes weekly and became involved in other initiatives within the RVCEF organisation including the Pink Ladies support group and social hubs.
Having not worked for a number of years, the participant successfully secured part-time permanent employment with a local business.
“The programme has given me more confidence, I love my job but it’s hard work. If it wasn’t for Roe Valley Community Education Forum I would not have got where I am now. I would recommend this programme.”
