Julie was unemployed for 6 years while she brought up her family. She was looking to update her skills to help her get back into employment.
Julie lacked confidence and was shy when around others. After meeting with Elaine Wright, Five Lamps’ Intensive Support Worker, Julie decided that she would like to update her IT skills. Elaine supported Julie to enrol on a Level 1 ICT course at Five Lamps.
Julie then took the big step of joining the class and meeting new people, which she found daunting at first. Initially, she found the work very demanding but she soon started to enjoy this new experience as it had been many years since she last studied.
Julie recently took her first exam and is waiting for her results. Julie also successfully completed a Food Hygiene course arranged by Elaine as she wants to work in the catering and hospitality industry or in retail.
This single Mum isn’t daunted by learning and work anymore.
