Sally Fry

Sally Fry is one of three local people who have recently secured roles at the Jurys Inn Hotel after receiving advice and support from TBG Learning.

Sally had struggled for years to find employment and had lost all confidence in ever getting back to work.

“Before coming to TBG Learning on the Work Programme, I had been looking for jobs with little success. To be honest, I really started to feel unemployable. To help improve my chances of finding full-time employment the job centre referred me to TBG Learning.

“I was a little apprehensive about coming to TBG Learning as I was thinking “here we go again”. I had been sent on courses by the job centre before that were just not right for me. The environments always felt so negative, with many of the people on the course not wanting to be there and also having someone talk at you like a child at school.

“TBG Learning was different and not like other provider centres I had attended. The learning environment was the best I had been in; it was a happy one with happy people. I think it’s because they treat you like an adult.
I learnt so much; I attended a computer skills course, which was a great help because I was a bit of an IT novice. I also completed a CV-writing and interview workshop. Before my interview at the Jury’s Inn I had never been invited to a formal interview. TBG staff advised me on the questions I might be asked, what research I should complete and what to wear. Everything I learnt helped me to prepare for my interview; it was such an achievement to know that the skills I had learnt had resulted in a new job as part of the hotel’s service team.

“TBG Learning has really given me confidence and so many more opportunities have opened up. Jury’s Inn has put me forward to complete my Customer Care NVQ and Food Hygiene certificate. In the short time here I’ve won the employee of the month award and look forward to competing for the employee of the year award. It was really nice to be recognised as an outstanding employee by my colleagues.”
