  • Michael Wright
    This programme helped me get the qualification I didn't even know I needed to do the job I wanted, now I'm able to do exactly that. This was a positive experience for me and I would tell anyone to do the same.
    Michael has faced significant barriers to achieving employment. Some of these personal barriers have had a profound affect on his well being and confidence in the learning sector. Michael has never enjoyed being at school and suffers from ADHD which aggravated his dislike for being in a classroom. This ultimately hindered Michael in school and he did not achieve the grades he wanted.

    I was kicked out of school because of my attitude but here it was a much calmer environment. It was just much quieter and helped me to work.
    Kieran was permanently excluded from school due to poor behaviour. The school enrolled him onto their own Foundation Learning Tier programme but this didn't work out for him, and his poor behaviour continued.
