Sarah is the personification of what Key Employment strives to achieve. Sarah commenced with Key Employment in January 2019 and through her hard work and dedication Sarah has managed to achieve her goal of completing her accredited training and finding employment.
When Sarah first commenced with Key she was struggling with her mental health and was withdrawn. Sarah was, however, determined to find employment. Sarah searched for jobs for some time but wasn’t successful and this was affecting her motivation and confidence. Her Consultant, Natalie, suggested a course to increase her employability but also to help with her social isolation and confidence. Sarah and her consultant decided on a Certificate 3 in Hospitality due to the high levels of employment in the industry in this area.
After her initial apprehension Sarah flourished in the course with the trainer describing her as the “star student.” Sarah was always eager to learn in the classroom and her confidence soared. Sarah was able to secure work placement with a local hotel and proved to them that she was such an asset that she was offered ongoing employment. Sarah is now thriving in employment and has stepped up to a manager position will a team member is on leave. She was very thrilled to win the achievement award at the recent NSW State Training Awards and can’t wait to show off her trophy at Key and her workplace. She even got a hug from her boss at the pub, something that never happens.
“It’s a great place to be to make great friendships and get along with everyone. They have a good laugh and make it fun. The teachers are chilled and not as strict. They treat us with respect and like adults.”
“If it wasn’t for Key Employment I wouldn’t have the job I have now. I would not have had the confidence to apply for the job I did or do well in the interviews if it wasn’t for them. Key Employment isn’t scary! Just sign up with them and they will help you find a full-time or part-time job.”
“Training @ Key provided an adult learning environment with non-judgemental teaching. They take the time to explain things to me which makes me want to attend.”
“Key Employment has changed my life by getting me a job and helping me start my career. They check on my progress regularly and are always there to offer support if I need it.”
“I like KAPOW a lot because it’s good to learn new things and gain knowledge. It’s also good because you make friends with the trainers and other kids.”
