Case Study: CT Skills motivated me to succeed

Sharna Charles, like many others, was wanting to progress in her career.  Although she had always been employed, she was wanting to make that next step. Without a GCSE  Maths qualification she was limited to what college courses she could apply for, even though she was actively wanting to continue her education.

Realising this, she spoke to a careers advisor and was referred to CT Skills about undertaking a maths functional skills course, which would lead her to gaining a qualification equivalent to GCSE Maths grade C. Prompted by knowing the course is fully funded and takes only 6 weeks, Sharna took up the offer to begin working towards her maths qualification.

When asked about her experience on the course, Sharna enthused:

“I wanted to do the course as I have heard many good things about CT Skills”.

“My very first introduction was fantastic and gave me the confidence to keep going!”

Sharna’s tutor Marie helped her through the course, enabling her to understand and answer mathematical questions that she had previously struggled with. Throughout the 6 weeks, Sharna explained Marie was friendly, easy to talk to and very understanding.

Since Sharna has successfully gained her functional skills maths qualification, she has been offered a placement on a course at her local college. Feeling excited about this step forward, Sharna quoted:

“I feel the course has changed me in many ways”.

“It’s made me more confident and willing to work harder for what I want to achieve.”

As of current, Sharna is looking to eventually start her own business, whilst enjoying working on art pieces and furniture. Sharna is considering returning to CT Skills to complete a Business Administration skills training course which would result in a Level 1 certificate in Business Administration and Level 1 in Personal Development for Employability.

Sharna concluded;

“I would recommend CT Skills to everyone!”

“I have recommended it to 3 different people who are now considering joining (a course). I would like to thank everyone for their help.”

We wish Sharna Charles all the best for her career in the future!
