“I was apprehensive about learning at first, I thought it would be like school. I went to school, but I finished at 14 and didn’t get any qualifications. I was supported through my enrolment and assessment, it made me feel really at ease with the situation and I get on really well with all the team, I even attend lessons early and help them set the tables and chairs up if i have enough time I help pack them away sometimes unless I have to rush back to work. I have been getting on really well had recently passing all the mock tests I do. Rose arranged for me to return to Clarion to take my health & safety level 1 and sit the test. Beatrice went with with me for a couple of lessons to make sure I knew what I was doing, and that I could do on my own because this time it was all online using zoom. I’m really looking forward to getting my card because I will be able to get a better job and do more.” Fred went on to pass his level 1 health & safety and has his card test.
