I have really enjoyed Work Ready as it has taught me a lot of life skills and the work experience has definitely helped me. I wanted to work in a shop, but after doing work experience I have decided that wasn’t right for me, so now I have started work experience in a hairdressers and I know that’s what I want to do in future.

“I get a great deal of pleasure helping students to achieve their goals, whether that be progressing onto further studies, or gaining an Apprenticeship or employment. I have a variety of skills and qualities that I can pass on and help develop in each individual."
