Jade is counting her blessings as she achieves her career goal.
Jade was referred to Employability Services for employment support, as she felt she missed out on the early stages of her career when she became a young mother just as she left school. She has therefore worked really hard in recent years to gain qualifications and experience in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, Teaching Assistant roles and updates to Functional Skills, all in the hope to improve her circumstances.
Jade was supported to start a placement at Foresight; working with Adults with Learning and Physical Disabilities to engage in various activities. Working continuously with her Employability Support Officer, Jade overcame her anxieties to improve self-esteem and confidence within the workplace. This ultimately led to Jade being successful in gaining paid employment as a Support Worker at Linkage College Campus, Grimsby.
Tracy Chaplin, Jade’s Employability Support Officer, was very pleased to say:
“Jade had been so pro-active in applying for jobs and asking for my support when needed, she truly deserves this outcome”
Jade also states “I have learnt a lot from my experience on placement, which has given me much more confidence…I am really excited to finally start my new job”.
