Well done Graham – the SHOC factor

Graham came to us homeless, he is now settled in accommodation and has been getting help with his basic skills from a course in the Springboard Learning Centre.  We’re all thrilled that he’s just completed the course and been awarded his first certificate.

A report published by Crisis in 2006, (Missed Opportunities: the case for investment in learning and skills for homeless people), proved that for the homeless and socially excluded:

“training needs to have flexible attendance requirements, small learning steps, given by tutors who empathise with their situation in an environment in which they feel comfortable and not threatened and where their other needs are addressed alongside those for learning”

This is exactly what SHOC offers and Graham is a great example of  the SHOC factor at work.
