S2A: Good News Story - Jenny
Jenny started Skills to Achieve in October 2015. Jenny left school with low grades and low confidence. She felt that school had been a negative experience for her and restarting education came with a lot of anxieties.
At first, Jenny started off very quiet in sessions, never speaking to fellow learners and taking breaks on her own. At times she would put up barriers towards the tutors when learning, this was due to her bad experiences in school.
Over time Jenny with support felt she could give her exams a go, when she was delivering her speaking and listening to the group it became apparent how much Jenny had grown in confidence.
Jenny has also completed a two week work experience at Sue Ryder where she gained valuable experience in talking and communicating with customers, sorting and tagging clothing as well as learning about the world of work.
We are very proud of her and how far she has come, she is due to leave us shortly and move on to mainstream college to study IT.
