Andrew had been seeking a job following the closure of his previous employer’s company. Through the Job Centre, Andrew found The People’s Orchestra in 2019. He was looking to build up his confidence in job applications and his own ability, whilst beginning to gain experience in an office environment.
During his time with The People’s Orchestra, Andrew has been able to practice his IT skills and develop a tailored CV to highlight both his previous and new skills. By joining in with the office part time, Andrew has been able to contribute within group skills sessions and practice questions and application scenarios, enhancing his self-confidence and job applications.
Although Andrew came to The People’s Orchestra as a matter of need, over time he has gained knowledge and experiences that he will be able to apply in all matters of life. Andrew continues to regularly join the TPO office and participate in further workshops, whilst also taking on a Health and Safety at Work placement training course in a part time capacity, at a local college.
