Nasser had multiple barriers to learning and employment which included a lack of confidence, low literacy and speaking/listening skills as well as caring responsibilities for his mother. Nasser also had gaps in his employment and a lack of references. Nasser also felt he had a lack of transferrable skills which were a barrier for him as he was not confident with attending interviews and filling out application forms.
Nasser learned about the Way2Work programme by word of mouth through family and friends. He enrolled onto the Way2Work programme at CTP Nottingham to receive Information, Advice, Guidance (IAG) and employability support.
Nasser’s goals included improving his current employability skills, updating his CV, practicing interview techniques, carrying out a filtered job search and finding employment.
