Case Study – Harry Howard Employability Route at Fleetwood Study Programme Name: Harry Howard Age: 17 Route: Employability Work Placement: Armbro Ultrawear, Blackpool Harry started his Study Programme at the Fleetwood centre on 7th September 2015. Upon joining the programme, Harry was lacking in confidence and found it difficult to join in with new groups of people or to speak out in the classroom. As his programme progressed, Harry gained lots of confidence and made lots of new friends. Harry worked hard in all the lessons he attended and achieved his Entry 3 Certificate in Employability, Functional Skills Maths Entry 3 and Functional Skills English Entry 3. Harry started work experience in April at Armbro Ultrawear in Blackpool. Harry was nervous when starting work experience and doubted his own ability but he is performing extremely well. Feedback from our Work Experience Officer and also his employer has been positive and encouraging. Harry’s excellent attendance and attitude in centre and on work experience gained him a place on the Outward Bound trip, which he attended in May and really enjoyed. He has also gained a Learner Achievement Award after being nominated by his tutor. Harry progressed onto a Traineeship in August and will hopefully gain an Apprenticeship from his work experience.
