"W When I first came to the course, I was nervous and shaking, I basically didn’t want to come. I forced myself as I knew I had to make changes for myself and as soon as I walked in, I noticed everybody was so welcoming.

It still took me time to settle in but knowing everybody was so understanding I soon felt like I fit in straight away. I always think if it wasn’t for this course, I don’t think I would be around today. All trainers and mentors made me feel more confident in myself which helped me get out of bed everyday to attend the course.

Eventually I felt no nerves whatsoever at the course and enjoyed my time there learning about food processing and baking all sorts of things.

Tursa got back in contact with me and told me Workplace Training Strategies had a internship available at the 6729 Bakery if I was interested.

“When I finished the course I felt myself slipping back to where I was before I started. But the confidence and motivation I got from the course saw me start personally handing out my resume to various employers.”

I took the opportunity to go back and help students that were in my position when I first arrived there.

Helping people isn’t just for their benefit it actually helps me too, it makes me feel better about myself, It makes me feel like I have made someone’s life a bit better.

To be honest I still fight myself to get up as I have for a long time the difference now is that I win the fight and always turn up to my job, because I love it. It makes me so happy that I am doing something that matters."

When I started at the academy my confidence on a scale of 1 - 10 was a 3 now working with Paul, I feel I am a 7 and I’m building on that every day. I have built my confidence, I can interact with different personalities and I feel more confident to make my own choices in life. Read more.
