Hi its Dan here I left school about a year ago I am 17 years old, I applied for a job as a Trainee Youth Worker Sans Street soon after I left school. I carried out all sorts of courses such as my NVQ Level 2 in youth work and I have achieved a Sports Leadership Award as well as becoming a Health Champion. I also work with young people every Monday and Tuesday night and have done for the past 10 months in Sans Streets Youth Centre.
My name is Callum I am 17 years old. I left school with no qualifications. When I left School I had a job in carpet fitting, but didn’t last. I wanted to join the Army, and needed to build on my confidence and get some qualifications, so I joined the Pump IT Project, at Sans Street Youth and Community Centre, since being on the P.I.P. course I have gained my First Aid Certificate, N.V.Q in Employability Skill and my Sports Leaders Award, these accreditations have helped me, when doing my training for the Army, which I start in September.
Hello, I’m Daniel and I’m 20 years old. I’ve had a couple of part time jobs since I left school but none of them were jobs that I would like to do forever and I didn’t have the motivation or confidence to be able to get a full time job. Since I joined the Pump It Project I have built my confidence and motivation which has helped me pass a 6 week training course at Nissan and now I’m just waiting for a line trial.
Hi I am David Jenkins and I left school with no grades and I got kicked out in year 9. I have been all over applying for jobs but I got no where.
Now I am on this Pump It Project and since I have joined this course I have now been involved in a lot of different things.
The things I have enjoyed most are the Sports Activities such as football and bench ball and our Street Games Event where 50 young people from around the area took part in different sports.
I liked going away on the Residential to Hexham as we all got to know each other in the group and bonded well with the youth workers.
I am looking forward to going away again in the next couple of weeks to North Yorkshire where we are doing more activities and evaluating the course as it the course is ending in June.
I have really enjoyed being part of a group and working with Hazel she is the BEST EVER YEAY !!!!!”" Kenko Over and Out Bye Y`ALL !!!!
