David was unemployed and looking for employment. He was given advice by his adviser on various jobs and courses and his CV.
What Prospects did
David’s adviser told him about different jobs and what courses he would need to take to get a range of jobs. David is interested in becoming a gas installer and his adviser told him about courses and gave him information on how to register for a level 3 Gas Installer course.
David’s adviser did an action plan with him which covered what they had talked about during their meeting. He also showed him the National Careers Service website and what David can do on there to help his ambitions prosper.
Outcomes and results
As a result of working with Prospects, David has completed pre-employment training and has registered to start the level 3 Gas Installation course in September on a part-time basis.
