ETS North Case Study

Updated: 04/08/2022


Lauren came to Barnardo’s in March 2011 following a recommendation from Connexions. She was 17 years old and had been doing a Business Administration Apprenticeship with a different provider which she was not enjoying.

Lauren lacked confidence but was encouraged by her keyworker to try and work 2 days a week in placement to help boost this and to develop her skills in Beauty Therapy.

Lauren worked at Hands On Hair & Beauty Salon voluntarily throughout her programme. Her manager Denise said “With support, Lauren’s practical skills grew and her confidence with clients and reception work meant that she could now offer a wide range of skills to any potential employer.”

When the time came for her to leave Lauren was a much more confident person all round, and we wish her the best of luck.
