Before Work Focus: After being made redundant Mary’s career needed a jump start.
“Things have changed so much over the years. I felt very nervous, I couldn’t type well and I’ve never been to something like Work Focus before.’
How Work Focus helped: Mary found the lecturers to be extremely helpful, taking the time to help her through the course material on a one-to-one basis, as well as focusing on other issues in the group simultaneously.
“The teacher, Joyce, was incredible. She was very patient, very calm. It’s those little things that make a difference when you’re nervous or unsure of yourself.”
Where are they now? After completing the two week course and gaining a Gateway Qualification Mary has since secured a position at Newham College London as a HP Administrator.
