Jack was living in our Young People’s Supported Accommodation.
Jack met up with our Alabaré Academy Employability Coach, hoping to be able to find employment and have a stable income. Together they focused on the areas where Jack felt least confident, including his numeracy and literacy and some of his problem-solving skills. Over time they met regularly, and Jack felt ready to start actively looking for employment.
We supported Jack in writing his CV and how to effectively look for jobs online via search engines and job websites. Jack found several positions that he was interested in and able to apply for, presenting himself and his skills in the most impactful way. It clearly worked, as Jack was delighted to secure a new job on a construction site, and Alabaré Academy was pleased to be able to help him buy the PPE clothing he needed to start his new job.
“The service provided by my coach was great. I now have a CV and a covering letter. I did not know much about covering letters before,” said Jack.
