Amelia's Story

Amelia's Story

Talent Match helped Amelia to gain qualifications and a job

Amelia came on to the Talent Match project 18 months ago. She'd been unemployed for a year since leaving school, with no idea what she wanted to do.

The Talent Match Mentor worked with Amelia to explore her likes and aspirations, which prompted her to start a childcare course. She loved it, and has since gone from strength to strength. An opportunity came up almost immediately, which she took, and she's now completed Level 2 Childcare.

Amelia also did IT tuition one afternoon a week, and has recently re-taken her GCSE Maths to get the C or above that she needs for her Level 3 Childcare, as well as working two and a half days a week.

Today Amelia has a full time job at the nursery on full time pay and has started the Level 3 Childcare course. She has come a long way from sitting at home and wondering what to do with her life.

We have used a stock photo and changed Amelia's name to protect her anonymity.
