“Taking part in the Traineeship programme improved my confidence and motivated me to get out of the house and build a career. If I hadn’t have done the course I’d still be looking for work. I’m now doing my NVQ and I hope to keep building from there. I was so impressed with the Starting Point service that I encouraged my boyfriend Danny to visit.”
