“I feel that I have learnt a variety of skills and brushed up on important matters such as better interview techniques, tailoring my CV to the job that I am applying for. I also feel that the certificates that I have passed will help a great deal in getting employment. The staff at Kent Enterprise Trust have been very professional and helpful in getting me back on to the employment ladder.” KET beneficiary.
“Working with KET on this project runs side by side with my business and passion for teaching. Raising self confidence and belief is part of our forest school ethos and I am looking forward to helping with the next project.” Dane Buckman, FLB Garden Services.
“It was great to work with KET and the beneficiaries providing manual handling training, it is always helpful to show a prospective employer what skill sets you have acquired and KET helps by providing this opportunity. Good luck to all in their job hunting.” Brendan Tetley, Achieving Clarity Together.
