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.
