Sheldon's Story

Sheldon heard about the Elevate programme having heard about it from a friend at college, he wanted a travel and tourism qualification but did not have the Maths and English GCSEs he needed. Sheldon visited the CXK offices where he was pointed in the direction of Elevate and now says it is a fun and relaxing way to get the qualifications he needed.

For Sheldon, the first few weeks are the most memorable as the team were spending time getting to know each other through fun activities which gave him the opportunity to learn what’s different about other people compared to himself.  Having a comfortable place to go to everyday made it easier for him to settle in and make the most of the programme.

Elevate has given Sheldon better social skills and now feels less shy around people, he now has a daily routine that he did not have before and thanks to the new friends he now has he has more motivation.

In the next few months Sheldon is looking forward to working towards getting a job in the travel and tourism industry, for him, successfully finishing the programme and finding work in something he is interested in is his next goal.
