I recently achieved Level 1 functional skills in Mathematics at Brighter Futures. I started my work placement at a solicitors where I have developed my skills. I really enjoyed my time on placement and felt I learnt a lot. I found work soon after.
I completed sixth form and started at Brighter Futures. I have gained Level 1 functional skills in English and a World Host qualification. I started my work placement and really liked it.
I started a traineeship through Brighter Futures at John Lennon Airport working with Securitas. I found this work very interesting. I wrote up documents, updated spreadsheets after collecting data, helped passengers with enquiries, dealt with queues, assisted passengers passing through security and helped with X-Ray machines for luggage. I was made up when they offered me an interview and I got the job.
I came to Brighter Futures to gain work experience and develop my confidence as I was unsure what I wanted to do for work. I went on placement at a hair and beauty salon where I was answering phones and managing appointments as well as speaking to customers and cleaning up. I realised I would like to work in an office and Brighter Futures got me an apprenticeship in administration. I started at Pro Temp Active straight after the completion of my traineeship.
Before I joined Brighter Futures I had finished college and achieved Hairdressing qualifications but I was struggling to find a job or apprenticeship. I joined Brighter Futures and during my time there I achieved a World Host qualification and gained valuable work experience at a solicitors where I learnt lots of new skills. I developed my skills and grew in confidence when talking to new people. I have now started work as an apprentice administration assistant.
I was completing my A-Levels at college and dropped out because I felt I was going nowhere. I joined Brighter Futures and started a work placement at Pro Kill in Bromborough. I really enjoyed my time on placement and learnt the importance of being in work and a lot relating to pest control. I completed my course with Brighter Futures and started my Apprenticeship with Pro Kill within 2 weeks.
