H, Leasowe Early Years and Adult Learning centre
My name is H. I am a fully qualified nursery nurse and have other qualifications such as GCSEs and various others related to a nursery nurse job role. I got made redundant after fourteen years of working for the council, over twelve months ago. This has given me some time to spend with my young daughter. My daughter now gets fifteen hours nursery funding which has allowed me to think about doing something for myself. I chose to enrol on Improve Your English and Maths course and a computer course, to brush up on my skills and gain confidence.
I would have done courses sooner but I have found it hard to find courses that fit in with my daughter’s nursery hours. I have, however, overcome this by slightly adjusting nursery hours and finding out if courses running have creche facilities. I hope these courses will give me the confidence to use the skills to get back into work and help when the time comes with my daughter’s homework.
I would encourage any adult wanting to learn on these courses as they’re a good confidence boost and like me you might do better than what you thought!
