Kildare and Wicklow ETB Newsletter Issue 10 Learn, Work, Live - Page 33

My sincere thanks to the Adult Guidance Service in Bray. I have been in contact with and have received support and guidance from you since 2005.

I initially began a course in Graphic Design in BIFE in that year, but I was not particularly suited to this course and began Social Studies on my next venture there in 2010.

This was with thanks to the guidance of Catherine Green, the Guidance Counsellor in KWETB. I was awarded student of the year on completion of my level 5 and this inspired me to go ahead and pursue an honours degree in Social Care in IT Tallaght.

There were issues with the maintenance grant which proved difficult to overcome at the time. Lourdes Delaney, the Information Officer was a wonderful support and did her utmost in helping me in regards to allowances etc. I found employment working as a social care worker last year in a service for people with Autism and Mental Health Disorders.

I am a 52 year old woman currently studying for a Masters degree in Mental Health in Trinity College Dublin after having experienced many adversities along the journey.

The Adult Guidance Service in Bray has been a tremendous help on my journey through further education this far. I wish to thank you sincerely for all your time, effort and guidance.
