6. Starting Situation – what was your situation before, during and after completing this qualification?
Before my qualification I was in sixth form, I was studying subjects I didn’t really have any interest in through the week, then on Saturdays and Sundays I would work in a local pub/restaurant for hardly any money. I had next to no money, no free time and not much life experience from a real working environment. Now I find myself in a position whereby I have gained a lot of skills and experience, after my working hours I get a lot more time to myself and also my weekends. And also I am earning as I am learning so I am able to do things I could never do before.
