Bright Direction gave us the important insights into what is required!
My name is Mr Garner and I’m 84 years old. I don’t have much experience with technology and wasn’t too interested in learning about it. But what I do care about is staying in touch with my family and friends. That’s why I bought a Tablet and registered to use Skype, so I could speak to my Grandchildren who now live in South Africa. The problem I had was that once I bought it, I didn’t know how to use it. Which is where Bright Direction Training helped me the most. They showed me, step‐by‐step how to use Skype. Dialling a call, how to charge my tablet and making sure I was always connected to the Internet so I never miss a call. They made all the basic functions simple and easy to do. Now I couldn’t be happier. I can get in touch with my family whenever I want, and I’m never more than a click away from the people I love.
I thought I had been written off. I’d spent the last 18 months applying for jobs and hadn’t had a single offer from anyone. At 56 years old, it felt like I had well and truly been put out to pasture, with nothing left to offer the working world. With every application I dug myself a deeper hole that it felt I would never come out from. But that didn’t change the fact I still needed a job. So, I took a leap of faith and joined Bright Direction’s employability course. And it’s one of the best decisions ever made. Their tutors showed me that I did have valuable experience. That there was something that I, even despite everything I’d been through, could still offer the world. They highlighted the barriers I’d made for myself and showed me just how to break them down. By the end of the course I had so much more confidence I was even asking the security guards who their employers were. Three weeks later I had had not one, but two, job offers. I took a job with G4S working at a local train station, and have never looked back since.
