Keanu attended the second R U BUSY? course for 2014. Before his attendance, Keanu left school after completing Year 11 and had little confidence. Keanu struggled with his reading and writing, however with the help from Jade and Wendy from the BUSY At Work Mentoring Team, and Keanu’s persistence, he was able to complete his Certificate I & II in Self Awareness and Development with flying colours.
Keanu is now transitioning into a full time Certificate III in Business at Gold Coast TAFE starting July 2014 as well as looking for part time work in retail. Keanu hopes to gain employment within the real estate industry as a long term goal.
Keanu was appreciative of his time in the course:
“The R U BUSY? course helped me to get ready for employment by showing me how to write a cover letter, update my resume and how to dress and talk in an interview. I now feel that I’m job ready.”
Equally, Rebecca, our Youth Project Officer, was excited to see the change that occured within Keanu:
“Keanu has made so many positive improvements within himself as well as his confidence since starting the R U BUSY? course. His body language, eye contact as well as his reading and writing skills have definitely improved. I’m so proud that Keanu is taking the next step to complete a Certificate III in Business -something he never thought he had the ability to do.”
