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 at home a year after leaving school, with no idea what she wanted to do.

The Talent Match Mentor explored her likes and aspirations with Amelia, and she started 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.

Amelia has now been given a full time job at the nursery on full time pay and has started the Level 3 Childcare course.

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