Congratulations To Students On Their New Jobs! Are You Next?
We are always happy to see our students progress in their new careers, thanks to their determination and our career training and support!
Here’s how some of our students got on recently...
From Childcare to Accountancy firm Administrator
Niki worked in Childcare for many years, but she became restless and wanted a new challenge. She came to us for help and based on what she expressed an interest in, we set her up to gain her Secretarial Diploma. She is now working in an accountancy firm as an Administrator. And she doesn’t want to stop there; she is now continuing her training to progress to Accounts Technician!
From Shop Assistant to Legal Secretary
Nicole started out as a shop floor assistant and then moved onto working in a cash office, but none of this fulfilled her. Based on what she told us she wanted to do, we set her up to study the Legal Secretarial Diploma and helped her find her new job working as a Legal Secretary in Swords.
From Airline to Adminstration
Amanda previously worked in airline security, but she wanted a change of scenery. Based on this, we set her on her way to a new career in Administration, which she is really enjoying!
