T.O is a young mother with an eleven month old child. She left school without qualifications, but then obtained level 2 certificates in literacy and numeracy whilst studying at a pupil referral centre.
She would eventually like to find employment working with animals, but due to childcare commitments she is limited in the time she can currently devote to ongoing education. T.O signed up for the Re Engage Plus programme as it gave her the chance to get back into the routine of attending training.
Within the context of the Enterprise programme she is now exploring the options available in working with animals, whilst working towards qualifications in ICT and Personal and Social Development. With the support of her Enterprise tutor she is looking towards work placements and courses in animal care. She is also considering what training and investment she would need to set up a pet grooming business.
