Read about Majda’s journey with us

This has been a long journey for Majda.  She moved back to the UK in September 2021 and made a claim to Universal credit.  She has been through several courses prior to Stoke on Trent College, but it was only after she enrolled at the college for ESOL that she began to move positively forward. At times it has been a difficult journey for her, she has had health issues but she has always wanted to work, and felt that she needed to gain some qualifications so she could get a job where she could still spend time with her children, but be well paid enough to provide for them.

She made friends on the ESOL course and her co-ordinator Steve and the college have moved her through various training over the last year and she was accepted onto the Learning Support SWAP that ran just before Christmas.

Majda Maohoub, Stoke on Trent College student.

“My job coach referred me to study at Stoke on Trent College last year, I have studied English Entry 3 and at Level 1, Maths at Entry 3 and completed Business Administration Level 2. I have done the Learning Support Assistant course and through some extra help from my co-ordinator Steve I was successful at the interview and have been offered a job as a Learning Support Assistant at the College. I enjoyed the atmosphere and the professionalism of the staff being so supportive enabling me to be successful in this new role and I look forward to starting my job.”
