Lesley was working at Rushey Mead Education Trust as a cleaner when she was asked if she would help out with some Facilities work for which training would be provided. Lesley agreed and sometime later was appointed into a Premises Officer’s role. As part of this, she completed a Facilities Supervisor L2 course which took a year, fitting in with her work schedule. She is now about to start a L3 Management course.
“Doing the course really improved my confidence and I feel so much more capable in doing my job. My colleagues also value me as a professional part of the team which is a real boost. I’m just about to start a L3 Management Course and some of my colleagues are now looking to join me!”
Lesley found the support of the Train Together team invaluable:
“My tutors were brilliant. I work shift patterns, so sorting meetings and assessments wasn’t always straightforward, but they never had a problem fitting in with my schedule. Even if I had to change things last minute which meant emailing them overnight, they were so flexible in arranging or changing appointment times, it made things so much easier.
“The team at Train Together are inspirational – they really do help you believe you can succeed. I would definitely recommend them to anyone!”
