Decoda came into KAPOW in 2019 and finished in April 2020.
While he was here he obtained his learners licence, First Aid and CPR certificate as well as his certificate III in retail.
Throughout the program, after a nervous start, Decoda became a keen contributor to classroom discussion and participated in activities outside the classroom including P.T sessions.
After finishing KAPOW, Decoda was keen to start work rather than receive a benefit.
When a position came up with “The Little Upholstery Shop” I discussed this with Decoda, His consultant Gemma says. He knew nothing about this type of work but was happy to give it a go.
The employer was impressed with Decoda’s attitude after a trial and he commenced employment as a part time Upholstery assistant.
Cheryl is his PPS consultant and has advised that he is going great and the employer is very happy with his progress. He fits in very well within their small team.
Decoda is also very pleased, he now has his own tool kit!
“I found the course very interesting and would recommend it to anyone who loves animals, like me 🙂 But I loved that it wasn’t all in class and we went on excursions aswell. It was awesome, I wished it went longer.”
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
“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.”
“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.”
“This course (Training & Assessment) would be extremely difficult and complex to teach, and i thought Gerry’s manner and delivery was very helpful in such a challenging course.”
