“On the programme, I was offered a lot of one-to-one support and encouragement. I gained a lot of skills in applications and interviews, as well as the ability to talk about my values and what would make me a good employee.
“A lot of the things they taught on the course were things I had done workshops for in the past, but the sessions were much better explained, and I enjoyed the level of engagement in the sessions which meant I actually understood the content.
“The biggest thing for me was confidence. From knowing more going into job applications to knowing you have the support and encouragement from the team and knowing there are people on my side.”
