Step2Work Case Study: Logan

Updated: 15/09/2022

Logan had been involved with Barnardo’s Works since he was 15 and identified as being at risk of disengaging from school.

He was a participant in our TASTE programme at Gleniffer High, and after taking part in sessions there with Erin and attending a visit to a local construction site he decided this was the career path he wanted to take.

After completing TASTE and leaving school Logan joined our first ever Step2Work group. His attendance and participation was excellent during the 6 weeks spent in the centre and he took part in a wide variety of employability sessions and employer talks.

After 6 weeks Logan began a placement with Alexander Murray joiners in Paisley where he worked as a labourer alongside skilled joiners. Logan showed an excellent attitude and that he was capable of learning new tasks very quickly. He impressed his employer and colleagues so much that he was offered full time employment as a labourer.

His employer has assured him that if he continues to impress he will start his apprenticeship as a joiner in 2023!
