Bamikola, Right Futures participant

Nineteen year-old Bamikola joined Right Futures after moving to the UK from Sierra Leone. Bamikola had limited English and as a result had low confidence. However his desire to work in the care industry was clear to see.

Bamikola started working with Meera, his personal Adviser. Meera identified some skillsets he'd need to improve to achieve his job goal, so she encourage him to take two modules of our 'Jump Start' training course.

'It's All About You' helped Bamikola identify his individual work style, personality and ways to improve his motivation. The more he could understand about himself, the better he would be able to sell himself to an employer. The second module, 'Selling Yourself With Your CV', helped him find the best way to present this information on his CV and develop a plan for tackling application forms and personal statements.

With his new-found skills, Bamikola had a real belief that the Right Futures programme could change his life.

And he was right! After a few applications, Bamikola secured a job in a care home.

Bamikola told us the training and support that Meera offered him, has helped him overcome obstacles that he previously thought he couldn't.

"I am very lucky to have had this kind of support, and I can only thank you."
