Seema's Story

Seema joined the GenXt project and passed her Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exam in December 2019. She then went on to successfully start her new role, as an administrative assistant, in central London.

“During my time on the IT and Digital traineeship programme I have been able to advance my Microsoft Word skills and have become a Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS). This has become very useful in my current job whereby I am able to work faster and more efficiently. The programme has not only helped me with my IT skills but has given me confidence and guidance when approaching the world of work.”

Testimonial

“Content and presentation by the facilitators was consistently high quality and engaging. Most importantly, each session provided an excellent review of the challenges and opportunities inherent in each area – while challenging us to clarify and to find our own answers. I feel that all the techniques used, the methods, the videos/whiteboard were extremely good. …  It is great to have PPCP facilitators with so much energy. I felt challenged and consistently drawn into the exercises and presentations had my full attention due to the way in which they were conducted.

Challenging programme effectively carried through. participants with broad experience helped to enrich the discussions in a very positive way…. There are many useful things I am taking home from this training and I am appreciative of this opportunity to learn from such a diverse team.

Thanks a lot!!” – Raj P
