Dean Accelerates towards work

Our Accelerate project is about much more than just employability skills. We are here to help people change their lives in positive ways, whilst keeping employment at the front of their minds. From full time work to simply giving you the confidence to meet new people, Accelerate is here for you.

We appreciate that people may have different needs when it comes to employability support and Sharon, our Customer Support Officer for Accelerate, can do just that!

Dean, a customer who heard about Accelerate through his work coach at the Jobcentre, got in touch with Sharon to help find training courses.

Low on confidence, Dean approached Sharon for the help and guidance he needed to gain the skills and confidence so he could be ready for mixing with people, gaining social skills, training and, ultimately, work.

Sharon helped Dean with introductions to training providers and find and enrol onto courses to suit his needs as well as supporting small changes such as improving his CV.

The improved confidence Dean gained through Accelerate not only helped his employability, but his social life too. He joined the Pathways group and built up his confidence to attend their coffee shop, making new friends along the way.

On the impact Accelerate has had on his life, Dean said: “It has given me something positive to look forward to and has helped me gain new experiences and social skills.

“I hope to continue to see Sharon as I have ambitions to keep building my confidence and take further courses and training.”

Sharon said: “I look forward to seeing Dean and we have built up a good rapport.

“I have noticed that his confidence has improved over the time he has been on the programme and has worked hard in attending and completing all the courses that we had planned for him to do plus making friends along the way.”
