UCAN centre customers share their stories

  1. UCAN customer - getting into university

    Gail attended Tonge Moor UCAN centre for help with her IT skills, but we quickly realised she was better than she thought with IT, she was just lacking confidence. We identified her real potential and discussed her career options. She would ideally like to work in social care, but she did not feel she could achieve this. 

  2. UCAN customer - online job searches

    Jane was able to complete her own job search and said she feels a lot better when applying for positions as she now can work alone.
