It was great to talk with some of the winners and they’ve told us about themselves and their reaction on winning.
In Cork, Martina is studying the Legal Secretary Diploma and told us.
“Words really cannot express my gratitude and thanks to you all at Pitman, but I hope that my commitment and dedication will demonstrate this. In my application I spoke of dreams, this is one of mine and I hope that it will encourage others to always follow theirs.”
The Dublin winner, Regina Finan, expressed her thanks as well.
“I still can’t believe that I won the bursary. I can’t wait for my first day, which is something that I can honestly say I can’t ever remember saying before in my life! I’m so excited about it! I’d write more but I’m just too happy to be able to come up with anything else to say. I haven’t been able to stop smiling since I heard.”
Niamh Tuohy in Limerick chose to study the Medical Secretary Diploma and told us about her hopes for the future.
“I am delighted to have won the Bursary competition with Pitman Training - it truly is a dream come true. In times when the recession is biting hard for everyone it’s important to get the job that you deserve. Words could not fully express my gratitude for this chance and opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills I require to secure my future in employment.”
We will be following the progress of all the winners and keeping everyone updated in the future. Check out the Jobs section of our website at: - http://www.pitman-training.ie/jobs-and-tips
