How it's helped others

Warwick came to us in May 2017. He previously worked for over 40 years as a Shift Maintenance Supervisor in an engineering work environment. Unfortunately, Warwick lost his job and struggled to regain his status as a supervisor.  As a consequence of his job loss and inability to find similar work, he lost his confidence and struggled to regain suitable employment. 

As a knock on effect, he felt his skills were no longer needed, he found himself suffering in low skilled, underpaid work and lack of job satisfaction. He did manage to secure another job, but he was not happy here and wanted another supervisor role...

Warwick starting receiving help as part of our Next Level project, we gave him regular one to one mentoring support and worked together on the barriers which were preventing him from getting back into a supervisory position.

We created an action plan with Warwick to give him a focus to move forward in his career goal of returning to an engineering supervisory position. He enrolled on the Next level NCFE Team Leading Level 2 qualification and successfully achieved the qualification.  This proved hugely beneficial to refresh his team leading skills.  He also attended our one day training courses to help increase his confidence and self-esteem.

Warwick was soon employed as an Engineering Supervisor at a factory in Scunthorpe afterwards.
