Christopher’s social skills and confidence has improved so much since he started at college on the Next Steps course and he is now pursuing his dream to study IT, eventually to degree level!
“I liked the sound of the Next Steps course and saw it as a stepping stone to move on to other courses. I was not very confident when I first started at college and I certainly never thought about going to university but now anything seems possible.
“My course teacher was absolutely brilliant and has helped me so much. Because of him I knew I had the support I needed to progress. He helped me improve my reading, writing and Maths skills and taught us how to write our CVs amongst many other things. The course really does get students ready for further programmes or employment and that is really good. As part of the programme I also got to volunteer at Irchester Country Park where I had to carry out general park attendant duties. Again this gave me more confidence and I started believing in myself.
“After a year on the Next Steps course I felt ready to move on to the Level 1 Diploma in IT. I have always been interested in computing and I was so pleased to be able to study the subject at college. I have since passed my IT course and I am now moving up to the BTEC First programme. After that I am thinking about going to university which is something I had never seriously considered. I still keep in touch with my Next Steps course teacher and know where to go if I need help or advice. I would recommend Next Steps to anyone who needs a bit of help moving on.”
