Programme Feedback

“I believe that I have grown my confidence and understanding of what I want to do in the future and the steps in which I need to take to get there.” 

“Coming into the employability programme I was very shy and held back a lot of my ideas and opinions because I was afraid to speak up in front of others. Throughout this course my confidence levels have increased, I now feel confident enough and comfortable to speak in front of a group of people. I also have gained some valuable skills and information that have helped me make some positive life changes e.g saving” 

Before the course I had little to no sense of direction as to what I aspired to be later on in life but with the help Korinna and Kieran I now have a better judgement on what I want to do with my adult life.
