Follow our journey

 

In May 2017, Sam enrolled onto our Employability Pathway at Landmarks College, with a view to accessing our provision at Rotherham. An assessment was arranged for July, where Sam spoke about what he wanted to do. It was evident from speaking with Sam that he was very motivated to work; he spoke with enthusiasm and passion.  He said, “I want to be tired after a day’s work.” Originally he wanted to work outdoors in a manual role, but said that he didn’t mind looking at different areas of work.

 

Sam was offered a placement at his local Tesco store, where he would be working with chilled produce, filling the shelves, putting out the deliveries and rotating stock. He was very excited about this opportunity and was very keen to start his internship. Sam started this on September 17.

 

Due to the nature of Sam’s disability, he can sometimes lack concentration, but when it came to work, he was solely focussed on the job at hand.

 

After a short period of time, his Job Coach started to take a step back, allowing Sam to work completely independently only seeking her out if he was struggling.

 

Within nine months, Sam has learnt the role inside out and now is working to the same required standard as other members of the Tesco staff team. He has formed good working relationships with his colleagues and has become an integral part of the team.

 

He was encouraged to apply for an upcoming role and was offered an interview. He worked with his Tutor and Job Coach to prepare for the interview.

 

After attending the interview, Sam was offered the job and has now secured employment at Tesco. He has already started his role, working without a Job Coach and his manager has reported that since securing employment, Sam has worked especially well and that securing employment has seemed to have driven Sam to work even harder than he did before. 

 

In September 2018, it was the end of his probation period. During his review meeting, to discuss what was going to happen next, Sam secured a permanent paid position at Tesco. Well done Sam!
