When Harry first moved into Sarum House, he was attending Andover College studying bricklaying. He left college due to an altercation with his teacher over the lack of support that he felt he was receiving for his dyslexia, which sadly meant he was unable to complete a CSCS course.
Harry’s Alabaré Employability Coach, Amy, successfully referred him to Hampshire County Council Construction Skills Fund. Harry seized the opportunity he’d been given by spending most of his downtime studying for the test. Harry passed the health and safety side of the exam but didn’t achieve a pass mark in the CSCS exam. He resat, but sadly again didn’t pass.
We worked closely with Harry to help him apply again, and eventually, he has been able to secure additional support with his dyslexia in class to help him to pass the course.
