Last month, Becky (aged 19) started an Employability course through ECL, where we will support her with the skills, experience and confidence to secure paid employment.


"I want to get a paid job, not just a voluntary job"

During her first meeting, Becky told us about her ambition to work in a caring role, particularly with children and that she’d love to be able to earn her own money.

Over the next 12 months, the ECL team, including Becky’s dedicated trusted assessor, Andrea, will work with Becky to develop her skills in areas such as budgeting, travel training and interview techniques.

As well as this, Becky will have the opportunity to achieve accredited qualifications through organisations including ASDAN and City and Guilds.

Keep your eyes peeled as we follow Becky’s journey over the coming months on our website and social media #journeytosuccess.
