      "Without Springboard, I wouldn’t be in the job I’m in now"

      10 years being a stay at home Mum can be quite tough. It’s easy to lose yourself. Springboard was a sanity saver at times and something to look forward to. As I completed the accredited courses such as Childcare, First Aid and ECDL my confidence grew and I was inspired to look into further education.

      As I developed the confidence and belief that I could progress, I started volunteering with Springboard and then with my child’s school. At the same time I also completed a Level 3 qualification in Supporting Teaching and Learning on line which gave me the skills and knowledge I needed to gain paid employment.

      I now work in Gelliswick school full time as a Level 3 LSA.

      I can’t believe it to be honest! I feel like I’m doing something really worthwhile.
