What we've been up to this month:

Taukir met Switchback in HMP Onley. After becoming a Switchback Trainee, he completed his work experience in the Kitchenette Karts and now has secured a job!

After release, Taukir got stuck into his training at Kitchenette Karts right away. Two days a week, he helped prep the food for the Kart, grilled the meat, and worked on his customer service skills by taking orders and payments from customers. When he wasn’t training, he was building his CV, practicing his interviewing skills, and mapping out his next career move.

Taukir worked hard on being realistic and faced the challenge that money doesn’t come straight away. He understood the importance of working on himself and that gaining experience was valuable to him and his journey.

Now, Taukir is pushing himself out of his comfort-zone and trying new things every week. He has embraced living life differently. By sticking with his changed mind-set and training, he has now secured employment and is now working full time!
