  • "Before I joined Brighter Futures I did my GCSEs and continued onto 6th form and gained 2 AS levels and 2 A-Levels. I joined Brighter Futures in order to gain work experience and a business qualification. I completed the Business of Beauty and Make-up course which included a BTEC in business, an ILM award and Enrichment. I attended a work placement at The Hair Spa where my duties included washing and drying hair, stock checking and ordering and greeting customers. I soon learnt that I preferred admin duties over practical tasks and started applying for Apprenticeships with the help of Brighter Futures. I was successful and now have an Apprenticeship with Signature Living as an events coordinator”

  • Before I started my Apprenticeship, I was in college studying towards my A-levels in law, history and psychology however I realised this was not for me and began looking for apprenticeships. This was when I found Brighter Futures. I was applying for apprenticeships however I was having little success due to a lack of work experience. I joined Brighter Futures wanting to gain more work experience. I was given the aim of competing a work placement and completing refreshers in my maths and English. I attended a 3 month work placement with Gregory Abrams Davidson, allowing me to gain the perfect skill set for a career in business administration. After my placement I was told by Gregory Abrams Davidson that they had a position available and I applied. During the recruitment process I felt as though Sysco were very helpful prior to starting. Sysco went through interview techniques and personal statements with me preparing me for the process. Personally, I feel Brighter Futures has made me a much more confident person and has given me a broader skillset.

  • I joined Brighter Futures as I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do once I finished School. Brighter Futures gave me some direction and helped me decide what I wanted to do in the future. While I was at Brighter Futures I completed a Business Qualification which focused on business but with a Gaming backdrop. I also sat refreshers for my maths and English and attended a work placement at Resurrection on Bold Street. My duties included processing stock and liaising with customers. I learnt how to work effectively within a team and became more confident in a working business environment. Since I finished with Brighter Futures I have been successful in gaining an apprenticeship in Business Administration and am putting in maximum effort in order to learn as much as I can and get full time employment!

  • I didn’t really know what I wanted to do, I might have gone to University and got into a lot of debt for nothing. I wanted to get a job and start a career and Brighter Futures helped me take the first step in this direction. I’m so glad I applied!

  • Before I joined Brighter Futures I had been at school doing my GCSE’s before finishing in May. I wanted to move straight into employment as I had some issues at home and did not enjoy school so I wanted to be able to support myself. I joined Brighter Futures doing the Business of Gaming course and completed a BTEC in business, a level 2 Health and Safety qualification and took my English Functional Skill Level 1 and 2. I was unable to attend a work placment due to the same issues at home that had affected my GCSEs but Brighter Futures were really supportive and ensured I was given plenty of support when applying for vacancies they thought I was suitable for. I got a job straight after leaving with Kee Connections and am now taking my Warehousing Level 2 and hope to progress to level 3 when I finish.

  • Before I joined Brighter Futures I was studying towards my A-Levels at 6th form college. I joined Brighter Futures and I completed a work placement at Liverpool John Lennon Airport for 8 weeks. I also had not achieved grade C in English at GCSE so I worked towards achieving this. As part of my placement I worked in the airfield operations department and learnt how to maintain a safe environment at all times. I gained experience and gained knowledge of the fine detail that is needed when working within the aviation industry. Following my placement I started a warehousing apprenticeship with Bullens Healthcare and finish in June 2017.

  • Before I joined Brighter Futures I pretty much didn't do anything apart from go to the gym! I joined Brighter Futures and I attended a work placement at Liverpool John Lennon Airport. From my placement I learnt that as long as you work hard good things will come of it! I learnt new things such as people skills, confidence and patience.

I would like to thank Brighter Futures. The programme they ran was great and now it has lead me into a full time career.

  • Before I joined Brighter Futures I was still at Woodchurch High School resitting my Maths GCSE. I joined Brighter Futures and completed my Maths and undertook a placement with Liverpool Housing Trust. My duties included; filing; working on the database; and filling in paperwork.

I joined Brighter Futures and achieved my maths and English functional skills and completed a 7 week work placement with PH Jones plumbing and heating company.
