I came to CTS on the 7th of August 2017, to do English and maths level 2 as I needed both to become a teaching assistant. When I first started at CTS, I was really nervous as I thought, at 33 years old I would not be able to remember things like I could when I was younger, but my tutor Pooja put me straight at ease and helped me a lot.
I started to learn quickly and passed my level 1 exams first time.
During a discussion with my tutor Pooja. I made clear I was wanting experience as a teaching assistant. After speaking to the manager Sally, I was offered a voluntary position to work alongside my tutor Pooja.
I started a voluntary placement in agreement with my jobcentre advisor on a Tuesday and Thursday and started level 2 English on Wednesdays. I passed level 2 exams first time and now I am doing Maths level 1. Now I am doing work experience at CTS and they are helping me to look at courses to get my teaching qualification.
