Like many of the people we support here at CVGT Employment, Emma struggles with a mental health condition and a lack of confidence. When she connected with our Albury team, Emma also wanted support to develop her skills to better prepare her for re-entry to the workforce.
Consultant Adele found the perfect way to address some of those issues, enrolling Emma in an Employability Skills Training course.
“Emma was hesitant to attend due to her anxiety,” Adele says, “but with encouragement and regular engagement she finished the course and now has gone onto completing a Certificate II in Community Services.”
To get there, Emma is catching a bus to the local TAFE to attend classes.
She is overcoming her barriers in leaps and bounds and her confidence is building every day, I am very proud of her how far she has come.

It’s a sentiment shared by Emma.
“I have gained confidence and am now regularly socialising,” she says.
Life is easier and so much better now and I see myself with a bright future. I had to go out of my comfort zone, which was very hard, but look how far I have come and want to keep going.

“Adele encouraged and made me believe in myself, and that things are possible.”
“She made me feel worthy and helped me take my first step and I haven’t looked back since.” Emma is making friends, completing her studies and getting ready to find meaningful work.
