Joel started with Progress in August 2016 at our Sefton Centre looking for employment. Whilst looking for employment Joel wanted to complete his Sports course. As a result of this, his tutor placed him on a 14 week Sports Level 2 qualification as well as work on his employability skills.
After 5 weeks on his Sports course, Joel was gaining more confidence and improving his knowledge in Sports and Coaching. Joel had excellent attendance and timekeeping and on a weekly basis, his tutor would do 1-1 support with him aimed at improving his CV and job capability.
Throughout lessons, Joel was always asking and answering questions correctly and confidently. He always enjoyed taking part in all activities. Joel would occasionally deliver practical sessions to the other students and came up with some very good ideas and implemented them into warm-ups and main sessions.
Joel came to the end of his sports certificate and progressed on to his diploma qualification with Progress Sports. During his time on the diploma, he learnt things such as how to plan and deliver a sports event effectively. This helped him with enhancing his skills in responsibility and authority.
Joel progressed onto BTEC level 3 in Sports Coaching in summer 2017. Joel successfully completed his first year on the course improving social skills such as confidence, knowledge and communication.
Joel began his second year but into his second week of the course, we managed to find him employment as a P.A at a bar in a busy part of the city centre.
After a couple of phone calls, Joel seems to enjoy it and has now been promoted to barman.
We wish Joel all the best in his employment.
