On Friday 17 November, Lee and Phil celebrated their graduation from Thames Reach's Work Ready course.

The programme offers a unique opportunity to take part in a week's worth of activities, training and workshops run by Tideway. 

60% of people who completed the programme over the last three years have achieved work-related outcomes. Aside from gaining the skills needed to find employment, training or education, participants will gain confidence, meet people and have fun. 

Highlights of the programme included: 

  • Food hygiene training 
  • A free boat trip on the Thames
  • Expert advice on finding a job

On completing the course, Lee said: 

The whole experience has made me more confident in myself and I feel more positive about the prospect of being work-ready now. If I set my mind to something, I feel like I can achieve it."
