Property Maintenance Training Graduate, Pathways Skill Development
“For over 30 years I was always employed. Some of the jobs were not the greatest, but I seemed to always get by. Then I lost my job and had to go on employment insurance – I thought this was going to be short-term.
Trying to find a job without grade 12 and no specific skills was next to impossible. MY E.I payment soon ran out and I found myself on Ontario Works. It was here that I learned I could take skills training at Pathways, so I decided that this may be an option for me to obtain the skills that I lacked. I decided I would take the chance.
After I completed the 3 employment readiness workshops I decided that I would take the Property Maintenance course. When I showed up the first I day I thought maybe this isn’t for me… After I listened to the instructor I began to think.. maybe this is for me. I decided I would go through with the 8 weeks and try to gain knowledge and find a job.
I am happy to say that after the course I found a job in the Industry and I am so happy to be back at work.”
If I could talk to people about the courses that Pathways offers I would strongly advise them to take the first step – you will be very pleased with the results. Every person at Pathways is there to help you succeed not fail.
