After leaving school, Jed felt like his options were limited as he didn’t do well in his GCSEs. He wanted to study Public Services, but he didn’t have the grades to be accepted onto the course.
He came to an Open Event at Eastleigh College and spoke to the lecturers, who suggested he enrol on a Gateway to Work course. This is a multi-skilled programme designed to support the progression for those who didn’t achieve their full potential at school.
Once he had completed the Gateway to Work course, Jed was able to apply for the Level 2 Public Services course. Jed felt like the Gateway course had really helped to progress him as a person – it taught him discipline, organisation, and most importantly taught him things about himself.
