Joanne Sanders hadn’t been able to work for a number of years after sustaining a serious spinal injury.
Although she was motivated, Joanne wasn’t confident that she could keep up with the physical demands of a job, but she wanted to test herself.
With Key Employment’s assistance, Joanne started casual work as a café assistant at Plantation Organic Bakery in Tyndale.
Joanne, with the support of Key Employment and Jobaccess, were successful in obtaining workplace modifications (anti fatigue floor mats) which were placed in the bakery to allow her to work longer hours with reduced pain.
Joanne has also completed Barista and Safe Food Handling certificates as part of her role and proven herself to be a reliable and efficient employee with strong work ethics and her employers, David and Rhonda, have had nothing but praise.
Well done Joanne on your achievements, and thankyou to David and Rhonda for your continuous support.
“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
“Key Employment assessed my needs and organised the correct and appropriate training to help me upskill and to improve my employment options and chances.”
“I am happy with the friendliness and helpfulness from everyone at Key Training. I have gained knowledge and skills about business which will help me in the future. I am really thankful to be helped and can’t wait to complete the course.”
“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
“My son is loving the KAPOW program. He said the whole group is really close and supportive of one another and he’s finding the Business course really interesting and relevant to what he wants to do with his life! That means so much to me, thanks Key Employment.”
