Student story

Kim had been out of work for a year when she started an ITQ Level 2 course at Redbridge Institute. Kim had worked as a secretary but felt she needed to brush up her skills and gain an IT qualification to rebuild her confidence and career. While doing her course, Kim also attended several employability workshops and completed a work placement.

Kim is now working full-time as a secretary for an estate agent.

The course and workshops at the Institute changed my life for the better. I have to use Excel and PowerPoint in my new job and would never have had the confidence to have applied for it if I hadn’t done the course and work placement.
