Meet Erik

Meet Erik, a determined individual whose life took a positive turn after completing our Transport and Logistics course funded through the Adult Education Budget. This initiative, managed locally by Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority, aims to enhance access to skills programmes for local adults aged 19+, offering “second chance” opportunities for career changers in high-demand sectors.
Before discovering our course, Erik faced unemployment and the
challenges of job searching in a competitive market. However, a ray of hope appeared when he stumbled upon a vacancy we had advertised. This opportunity marked the beginning of a remarkable journey towards personal and professional growth.
Erik attributes much of his success to the guidance and support from our dedicated tutor, Matt Barker. According to Erik, Matt’s unique teaching style, infused with humour and positivity, not only made the course enjoyable but also provided the motivation needed to persevere through challenges.
Post-training, Erik’s life underwent a significant transformation as he secured a position with a major employer in Billingham. This success is a testament to the quality and relevance of the skills acquired during the program. The newfound confidence and self-awareness Erik gained have been instrumental in his progress.
Now employed by a supportive company, Erik enjoys flexible hours and overtime options, improving both his financial situation and his vision for a more promising future for himself and his family. Reflecting on his journey, Erik expressed gratitude for the enjoyable course experience, gaining valuable knowledge and skills that made him more marketable and instilled pride and excitement in his newfound abilities.
Before the course, Erik admits he was nervous about his future, but post-training, he radiates excitement and pride in his accomplishments. He now sees a world of possibilities and is confident in his ability to achieve success.  Erik is not just a success story but also a strong advocate for our training program, wholeheartedly recommending it for the confidence boost and employment journey kick-start it provided him.
This success story represents the transformative impact our training courses can have on individuals seeking self-improvement. As we continue empowering individuals with the skills and confidence for success, Erik’s story stands as a beacon of inspiration for others on their own journeys toward a brighter future.
