Essential Skills student case study 1
Attending class for just an hour and half each week for a year has helped this learner improve their literacy skills, gain self-confidence and pick up a nationally recognised qualification along the way. Twelve months after first plucking up the courage to walk through the door, this learner is always smiling and is brilliant at motivating other nervous new learners. When this learner first attended the class, they would only write a couple of hesitant sentences whereas now three quarters of a page is normal!

"I never thought I would ever be able to do anything like this. It just shows it’s never too late. For the first time, I feel good about myself, even my husband has noticed that I am more confident than I have ever been. For me this is one of the best things I have ever done." Essential Skills and Creative Fashion student case study 3 "Throughout the fashion course I have gained a lot of confidence. Before I started this course I couldn’t even sew. Now I can use a sewing machine and sew designs on to paint transfers. I am very happy because I have also gained a qualification in maths. I received an Adult Learners’ Week Award for family learning too."
