Carly started on the Launch2Learn course in the Summer of 2021, she completed Level 2 Functional Skills in English and Level 1 in Maths.

She then moved onto Somerset Skills and Learning where she is undertaking a Traineeship and her Level 2 in Maths.

Our Education Employment Advisor (EEA) helped Carly to draft an email to enable her to gather references so she can apply for more work experience placements to gain further experience. The reference Carly received from Launch2Learn was so positive it really lifted her confidence!

She continues to work hard towards her qualifications and finishing her Traineeship.
