Jamie was referred to the Intro to Care course by his DWP advisors so that he could undertake the course and build his skills and knowledge in the care sector.

Having never worked in care before Jamie lacked confidence in his ability however as the weeks went by he developed more and more as his confidence and knowledge improved.

Tutor Karl said ‘from day one on the course I told Jamie we will get you into work!’ Jamie had two job offers and with Karl’s support he was able to choose the best opportunity for him.

The course gave Jamie a platform to feel comfortable and confident in understanding the care sector, preparing him for interviews as well as the role itself. As part of the course care organisations were invited into the sessions to give an insight into their organisations and the roles available which is what really makes our courses stand out from the rest.

Jamie initially thought this was ‘just another course’ however he now says ‘you’ve proved me wrong’ as he’s now had two job offers!

 

“I was very low and doubted whether I would find permanent employment again.

After completing the course I feel excited and grateful to start a career in care.

Steps to Work gave me the tools and confidence to be a better me”
