Essential Skills student Chloe Ward
Twenty-three-year-old Chloe Ward did a one year Access to Employabilty course and got the chance to put the skills she learnt into practice during a work experience placement.
Chloe said: “I like the course!
“I’ve learnt how to deal with money and am more confident talking to people now.
“I did work experience at an old people’s home and took a trolley of refreshments round to the residents – because of my money skills I was able to use the cash till to ring up what they’d bought.
“If you don’t try something you’ll never know if you’ll like it – I tried college and I love it!
After completing the course Chloe will be moving on to a Pathways course in September.
