What was the learner’s situation prior to starting with Antrec? How did they find out about Antrec? What were they hoping to achieve?

Les had left his job and didn’t want to be on benefits, Les wanted to get back working. Upon visiting the Jobcentre Plus he was directed to Antrec after being given a bit of information about becoming a taxi driver.

What issues did we need to address? What advice & guidance did Antrec provide?

At first Les was pretty daunted by the thought of using a computer for his initial BKSB training and assessments thereafter. The staff at Antrec were helpful and taught Les the basics about computers. Annmarie and Kevin helped at each stage throughout the training course.

What results did we achieve?

Les passed the course and was able to get his badge. Help was always on hand from the Caseload team right through to Tutors. All the information and guidance was provided by Annmarie with regard to gaining his Knowsley license.

What makes this story special?

Les left his job and didn’t want the stigma of claiming benefits, he worked hard to gain the skills needed to pass the taxi course and become a self-employed driver.

A quote from the learner describing their experience of their journey:

‘Help around every corner, all I had to do was open my mouth and Antrec offered assistance’
