Case Study 2
G is age 17 and has been NEET since leaving school over a year ago. He is keen to pursue a career as a painter & decorator. G is doing online health & safety practice tests as he works towards the CSCS qualification that will allow him to work in the construction industry. G is also training with Catch 22 to complete maths and English for his numeracy and literacy qualification.
G is very enthusiastic about having Motiv8’s help. “I like having someone to talk to, to support me into getting back into employment. I enjoy having something to do each week. I’m happy to have the opportunity to practice the tests so that I’m confident I’ll pass. Thanks for the opportunity. I love coming here!”
