Kathleen Murphy received her bonus for completing her Essential Skills Level 2 in Numeracy and Literacy. Kathleen joined the Steps to Work programme for 26 weeks and attended her placement in Margo’s Cafe, where she now is a full time employee.
This year we have nominated Jackie O’Brien for the 2012 Essential Skills Award. Jackie completed her Level 2 in Essential Skills in Numeracy and Literacy. She also completed her NVQ Level 2 in Hairdressing and is now working part-time in Ann-Marie’s Hairdressers.
Jackie is an inspiration to all the single parents out there. Her determination to gain qualifications and begin her career in Hairdressing resulted in securing employment and a better future for her young family. We wish Jackie all the best for the future and fingers crossed she wins the Essential Skills Award in Antrim area.
