Finding Futures, one of BHT’s Hastings-based projects, provides work and learning opportunities for those not engaged in education, employment or training. This week the team held an award ceremony for some of its successful learners.
Finding Futures is best known for its work with young people in the area but their work also focuses on older people. This week saw Rosalyn and Richard, both over 50 years of age, passing their courses and being presented with their certificates by BHT’s Chief Executive Andy Winter.
Finding Futures works with over 120 people each year, helping them to gain the skills and confidence that they need to move forward with their lives from unemployment to education, training and employment.
Gaining this latest certificate and Finding Futures as a whole has given me more confidence. I can do exams and pass them. I want to do more exams and get more qualifications. I never knew I could do this at 56!
Rosalyn, Finding Futures learner
It is many years since I sat an exam. I’m very pleased. It’s given me more confidence. I’ve an interest in health and safety so I am pleased that I have done this course, passed the exam, and have now got my certificate.
Richard, Finding Futures learner
One of the great delights of my job is meeting the men and women who use our different services, and to hear how they are moving forward in their lives. It is a particular honour to join them when celebrating a success.
Andy Winter, BHT Chief Executive
