As a single mum, Billie was working hard but her job wasn’t really the right fit for her to pursue her dream job in nursing. She told Karen her Progression Coach with Future Bright, “I was anxious about all the change or worried about my future.”
With help, Billie had to research her options to help her visualise the future. “I have had so much support from my progression coach. We kept in contact, and she reminded me that I could contact her when I needed to speak about any of my concerns. She pointed me in the direction I needed to go to get my dream job and now I’m edging closer and closer towards it”.
Since joining Future Bright Billie has thrived. She said, “I have changed my job to a more suited role. I have also started to prepare my personal statement for my university application.”
Billie says “Once I have finished my Access to Health and Social Care course I hope to get into my chosen university and complete my Adult Nursing Degree. Once I have qualified, I hope to continue with learning and training and become a Band 8 Matron/Chief Nurse. Through Future Bright, I have discovered the help and support that single mums have when returning to education, and I found that I can have a career”.
