Rebekah (21) a Plymouth Community Homes tenant, came to see Skills Launchpad Plymouth after a recommendation from her temporary employer.
Keen to discuss ideas which could support her future work options, Rebekah arranged to speak with Community Lead Coordinator James.
James and Rebekah spoke at length around the development of English and Maths skills which would enhance employability opportunities. They also talked about a wide range of free courses available through On Course South West, particularly Business Admin Level 2 Certificate, which would help both in her current, and future roles. In addition, Rebekah was looking for support to improve her CV.
Following ongoing support from James, and some really positive action on Rebekah’s part, she was able to find new employment and is really happy in her new role.
Here’s what Rebekah had to say:
“Skills Launchpad Plymouth have really helped with directing me for support in drafting a suitable CV and personal statements for job applications. James Blake has been particularly helpful, keeping in touch with me around my work related queries and always asking if there is any more help I would benefit from.”
When asked how she feels about her next steps Rebekah said, “I feel pretty confident that whatever comes my way next, in terms of employment opportunities, I will feel more prepared for any future job prospects. I know Skills Launchpad Plymouth will always be there to guide me if I need it.”
When asked to describe the support she received through Skills Launchpad Plymouth, Rebekah said, “All round - perfect!”
