      Now there is a future for me!

      I was unemployed and had little IT skills which made me feel that I was being left behind and wanted to make a change in my life in general.

      I heard about the Active Inclusion project that Learning Pembrokeshire was involved in. This project was aimed at engaging learners and encouraging people to try something new.  I was very nervous when I started attending a computer course and despite changes of venues in the Milford Haven area, I continued to walk to each one and only missed one lesson due to illness. I gained my ECDL Level 1 in Word, Excel and PowerPoint and progressed to achieve ECDL Level 2 in Word and PowerPoint.

      I now feel that I have more self-confidence and that there is a future for me. His tutor, Jenny, says “Patrick’s learning journey has been remarkable and his persistence and commitment to learning has been inspirational.”
