Elzabe first attended an Outreach information and advice appointment at Aylesbury Job Centre, in June 2019 and enrolled onto the accredited NOCN Level 1 Award in Employability. At the end of this course Elzabe met with an Outreach Officer to discuss her progression and booked in for an English and maths assessment. As a result she attended an intensive L1 English course in August and then enrolled onto a Fast track GCSE L2 course, which will finish in May 2020. Alongside her English course, Elzabe is also attending L2 maths and L1/2 Digital skills, learning new skills which she has already applied in her part-time job. Elzabe also attended a Building Confidence through Effective Communication course and is now attending Managing Stress with Mindfulness Techniques.
Elzabe values the small class sizes in Adult Learning and the opportunity to make new friends. She has a very caring nature and always offers to help others and even persuaded a fellow classmate on her Confidence Building course to book in for their English assessment!
“Buckinghamshire Adult Learning opened a new world of opportunities to me. I learned and am still learning new skills, which I need to change directions in my career. The courses here are so directed at personal development and have given my confidence a tremendous boost.”
