My son had completely disengaged with school resulting in significant negative behaviour and basically destined for the scrap heap.
School connected with John Alexander & Co, who arranged a 4 week work placement.
This experience made a life changing impression on Leo. He has a purpose to his day! When he returned home he was excited to share what he had done that day. He was building new relationships, developing employability skills and more importantly, taking responsibility for himself. This experience made a tangible impact on his confidence and for the first time gave him a direction for the future and me hope! Employees had discussions with him about the importance of obtaining his maths and English qualifications, which he now possess’s and secured a F/T college placement on a trades course.
Leo connected and engaged 100% in the environment and the opportunity given by John Alexander has changed a young mans life, my sons!, and for that we will be eternally grateful. – MICHELLE GALLAGHER, LEO’S MUM
