Ann Foster has attended a number of PCP’s learning courses and has surprised herself at what she’s achieved.
It was a daunting experience for Ann starting a course with low self esteem but she decided to give it a go and has never looked back.
“I had overcome major health problems, lost my job and wanted to start to rebuild my life and self confidence,” said Ann.
“I did an employability course last year and straight away I felt relaxed, the Pioneering Care Centre is such a lovely place and the people were very friendly.
“I have now done a number of courses and not only have I discovered I’m a quick learner and can achieve, I have made some really good friends who I now socialise with.”
